The Department of Public Safety, which includes the University police force, Parking & Transportation Services and Risk Management/Environmental Health, is focused on the safety and well-being of the people who study at, work on or visit the campus.

Public Safety is charged with responding to calls for help and educating the university community about crime prevention, fire safety and emergency preparedness.

Cal State L.A.’s Police Department participates in the national Law Enforcement Accreditation program, which certifies that the department is committed to excellence in law enforcement. The department is one of only six university police departments in California to meet these high standards.
