University Police Department

Chief's Message:

Welcome to the Cal State San Marcos University Police Department’s webpage. After being with the San Diego Sheriff’s Department for 26 years, I am honored to serve alongside the men and women of the University Police Department, Emergency Management, and Parking and Commuter Services. We provide professional police services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to ensure the safety of everyone on campus and in the surrounding community.

The University Police Department is committed to providing a safe environment where students can thrive and attain their educational goals. Building and maintaining partnerships with our students, faculty, staff, and all who visit our beautiful campus is an essential part of our mission.

As a parent of a Cal State University student, I am keenly aware of the many challenges students face while away at college. The worry of their safety while on campus should not be one of them. I am personally committed to ensuring our officers, dispatchers, and all employees are highly trained professionals who are prepared to fulfill all aspects of our duties.

I thank you for visiting our website. Please explore to see all of the services we offer.

Scott Ybarrondo, Chief of Police
