Preventing Rape by Intoxication through Community Education (P.R.I.C.E.)

Rape by intoxication is a growing crime, particularly among persons 18-25 years old. That is why the PRICE Coalition was formed through the San Diego County District Attorney. The PRICE Coalition includes members of law enforcement, local universities and colleges, the military, and the Center for Community Solutions.  All of these groups have teamed up to educate young people how they can stop this crime before it ever happens. Recognize the warning signs, and always look out for your friends.  In addition, if you or someone you know has been victim of a sexual assault, know that there resources available to help.


The University Police offer interested individuals the opportunity to accompany a police officer in the field to observe the patrol activities of the campus and immediate surrounding areas and is called a "ride-along".  This program is offered to better familiarize the university and local communities to the law enforcement function, and to allow those considering a career in law enforcement to better inform themselves on their personal career options. If you are interested in participating in the University Police Ride Along Program, please contact Sergeant Herman Hernandez at (760)750-4567 or send an email to to schedule your visit.
