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.
