California University Police Department

At the California University Police Department, we are here to help all members of the California University community. The Cal U Police Department, located in the Pollock Maintenance Building, serves as the administrative office responsible for the safety and security of all University property and personnel.

Our police officers are fully equipped and modernized with full police authority and jurisdiction on all state University property. Our officers conduct foot and vehicle patrols on a 24-hour basis, providing round-the-clock assistance to anyone in need.

Reporting an Emergency

Any emergency or crime can be reported by phone or in person to the California University Police Department. Simply go to the nearest on-campus phone and dial H-E-L-P or go to any public pay phone and dial *1. Identify the situation as an emergency and an officer will be dispatched immediately. There are also emergency call boxes that will connect you directly to the Cal U Police with a touch of a button. These emergency call boxes are clearly marked and will be installed in our parking lots as well as near our residence halls.

Contact us for more information.
