The Mission


The San Francisco State University Police Department is a diverse organization that prides itself with delivering professional community policing with integrity and sensitivity.








The Department


The University Police Department is a pro-active professional police agency dedicated to providing a safe environment for our campus community. We operate a progressive community policing plan with our budgeted sworn complement of 29 officers. We expanded our traffic enforcement program to the entire area adjacent to the campus with particular focus on 19th/Holloway Avenue and Font Boulevard/Lake Merced Boulevard at the entrance to Lots 19 and 20. The University Police Department consists of a group of dedicated professionals who strive to serve the academic environment and do it with pride.


In addition to the normal assignments within the department, all police officers participate in specialized assignments and programs so that they can better serve the campus.


The University Police dispatchers staff the dispatch center twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Their duties include: answering all University Police general and emergency phone lines, providing information to the public, dispatching officers to calls for service or crimes in progress, monitor all campus fire and safety alarms, inputting data into the Police Automated Records and Management System, inputting data into the California Law Enforcement Teletype System, logging of crime reports, and assisting visitors at the University Police counter. The dispatchers clearly have multiple roles, especially during emergencies, where they serve as a critical part of our operation.


All of the dispatchers have attended a Peace Officer Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.) Dispatcher School.
