University Police Department

As a police department on a University campus our goal is the same as every other campus department, to help get our students across the stage on graduation day! We achieve this goal through maintaining a safe academic environment by being a proactive police force working closely with students, staff, faculty, and community members alike. Working 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, UPD officers enforce all California Penal and Vehicle Codes on and around campus. UPD officers also assist the sheriff's department with any campus affiliated calls within the City of San Marcos.
