Campus Safety

Safety is a top priority at Cal Poly Pomona. The university is proactive in ensuring its community enjoys a safe environment conducive to studying and working.

University Police is dedicated to providing professional police services to the campus and partnering with our community to support the academic mission of the university. University Police is responsible for law enforcement, security and emergency response. The department is operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, year-round.

All campus telephones are connected to a 9-1-1 emergency system, which is located in the 24-hour Police Communications Center. Staffed by certified police dispatchers, the Communications Center provides telephone and two-way radio contact for emergency personnel, and also serves as an after-hours contact for students, faculty and staff.

In the event of an emergency, Cal Poly Pomona will provide crucial information as quickly as the situation allows. Information will be distributed through a variety of sources including text messaging, university Home page, an Emergency hotline and more.
