Delinquent faculty and staff fines will be deducted from an employee’s paycheck. Delinquent student fines will be sent to Accounts Receivable for collection..

Substance Abuse Citation

Our primary responsibility, as a State Certified Police Department, is the protection of life and property and the promotion of a safe environment within the CSU community. The enforcement of substance abuse on University property is another tool to enable CSUPD to better serve the University community.


Since substance abuse violations are the proximate cause of many serious incidents and injuries, it is beneficial to both the University and general community’s safety to address substance abuse violations. The high incidence of substance abuse on and around the University makes substance abuse enforcement desirable to prevent injuries and decrease property loss.

You have 14 calendar days to take care of the Violation Notice in one of the two ways described on the front of this summons. If you do not take care of the violation within 14 calendar days, the restitution will double and
the option to appeal will no longer be available.

Delinquent faculty, staff and non-affiliated restitutions will be doubled and sent to Accounts Receivable for collection.

Delinquent student restitutions will be doubled and sent to Accounts Receivable for collection and/or may subject the student to denial of registration, transcripts, and diplomas.

Payment of a restitution by an insufficient funds check will result in an additional $20 charge being assessed.

Payment can be made in person by cash, check, and money order or by debit or credit card.

Payment must be made in bankable currency; no loose coins. If paying by mail, send check or money order only.

Do not send cash. Please write the citation number on the check and make checks payable to CSUPD and send them to:

Appeals Proccesses

Bicycle Violation Notice Appeals

  1. A written appeal must be filed to the BEEP Coordinator within 14 calendar days of issuance of the Bicycle Violation Notice.  Initiation of an appeal stays the penalty until ruling is made, An Appeals Board will consider the written appeal and information on the notice, including written comments by the officer, and make a decision to uphold the charge or dismiss the notice. Written appeals will be considered during the next scheduled appeals session, The person appealing will be notified of the decision by mail.
  2. CSU Police Department allows ONLY ONE APPEAL per citation.  The appeal board’s ruling is final. A HEARING FEE OF $15 WILL BE ASSESSED By THE HEARING REFEREE FOR EACH CITATION THAT IS UPHELD IN THE HEARING PROCESS. This fee will be assessed IN ADDITION to the amount of the fine for the violation.
  3. If fine and/or fees are found due as a result of the appeal process they must be paid at CSUPD by the payment due date provided on the notice of appeals results. Any unpaid fines and/or fees following the due date will be doubled and forwarded to Colorado State University Accounting Services for collections.

Substance Abuse Citations Appeals

Requests for appeals must be made to the Substance Abuse Ticket Appeals Chair (via e-mail at, within 14 calendar days of the date of the violation summons. The written appeal must be 500 words or less and specify clearly the reasons for the request and meet one of the following grounds:

  1. New Information – To consider new information, sufficient to alter the decision or other facts not brought out in the police report.
  2. Factual information – To determine whether the decision to give a ticket was based on substantial information.
  3. The Substance Abuse Ticket Appeal Chair will review all requests to determine if the grounds are met. After reviewing the request the Chair can make a determination if the ticket will be upheld for not meeting one of the required grounds or convene the committee to review the request. The committee consists of student representatives from ASCSU Supreme Court, CSU staff member, and a CSU Police Officer (serving on a
    consultation basis).

The Substance Abuse Ticket Appeals Committee may make one of the following decisions:

  1. Reverse the ticket: the committee does not agree with the Police Officers evaluation of the evidence in support of the summons. If the appeal is resolved in favor of the student, the student’s ticket will be negated.
  2. Affirm the decision: the committee agrees the information before the committee supports the decision by the Police Officer. If the committee upholds the decision by the Police Officer, the student is required to make payment to the CSUPD by 14 calendar days of receipt of the decision.

If the committee has difficulty in deciding the appeal outcome, the Chair will make the final determination. The Substance Abuse Ticket Appeal Committee meets on the last Friday of each month. All appeals received at least 1 business day prior that meeting will be reviewed. The committee will communicate its decision in writing within 5 business days. The decision made by the Substance Abuse Appeal Committee is considered final.

Impoundment Appeals

  1. Impoundment appeals are handled in the same manner as Bicycle Violation Notice appeals. A bicycle owner may make a written appeal to recover any fees that were charged as a result of his or her bicycle impounded. To be able to file an appeal, fees and fines must be paid prior to the bicycle being released.

Bicycle Safety Seminar

If you have been charged with a bicycle safety violation you have the option of attending a bicycle safety seminar. Persons attending a seminar will have their fine reduced by half if they pass the test. If you sign up to attend a seminar, but fail to attend, the original fine will be doubled. You can attend only one seminar while at CSU, for violations cited on one notice.


We provide fingerprint services for applicant background checks. Please bring your fingerprint card and photo identification (preferably a driver’s license). We do not supply fingerprint cards.

Cost: CSU Affiliated: $10.00 per card

Non-CSU Affiliated: $15.00 per card

Bicycle Registration

All bicycles ridden or parked on the Colorado State University campus must be registered with the CSU Police Department. Exceptions to the registration will be made for bicyclists who are visitors to campus. A registration decal, known as a CSU Bicycle License, must be placed on the bicycle and is valid for as long as the decal numbers are readable.

Cost: $10.00

The bicycle registration form can be completed online and printed out, or it is available at the TBEEP Office at the CSU PD. The serial number of the bicycle is required and must be recorded. The serial number is usually found in one of three places on your bicycle. Please refer to the image to the right to find the most common locations. The image also shows you where to affix your CSU Bicycle License. If the bicycle does not have a serial number, it is the responsibility of the registrant to select a unique number and have it inscribed on the frame. The CSU PD does offer a free inscribing service.


If ownership of a registered bicycle changes, the owner must notify CSU PD. Registrations are not transferable and the new owner must register the bicycle. The new owner must ensure that the old Bicycle License has been removed when possession of the bicycle has changed. Only one CSU Bicycle License can be affixed to any bicycle at one time. If a bicycle is stolen, lost, or destroyed, the owner should notify the CSU PD as soon as possible so that a notation can be made on the registration form and a police report can filed, if necessary.

License Attachment

The license decal is supplied with an adhesive backing and is to be affixed to the main frame on the down tube of the bicycle (see the above picture). Make sure the area is wiped clean before placing the license on the frame. The license is to be affixed so that it is clearly visible.

Bicycle Impound

Bicycles can be impounded for various parking violations and if they are deemed abandoned. If you think your bike may have been impounded or you have received a notice, please contact the TBEEP office. If you have any information (make, model, serial number, and/or color) on the bicycle, proof of ownership and a photo ID please bring that with you. For further information please see the Bicycle Regulations.

Impound fee: $25.00
