Colorado State University Police Department provides a ride-along program for citizens. From January - May, opportunities for ride-alongs will be decreased due to the department’s training schedule. Citizens who wish to schedule a ride-along should make their request several weeks in advance, or consider requesting a ride-along with a different area law enforcement agency.
Realistic Safety Strategies (RSS) is an alternative to traditional self-defense, focusing on the realities of violence against women. While much of the curriculum is designed with women in mind, men are strongly encouraged to attend as well. Participants are not required to attend all four levels, but it is highly encouraged. Some snacks and water will be provided.
Who can attend: Faculty, staff, students, children of faculty and staff who are at least 15 years old.
Instructors: Cpl. Jesse Ihnen and Ofc. Ashleigh Rose and assisted by other Certified RSS Instructors.
Training will be held in Green Hall. Participants can enter the west entrance to get visitor badges, and will be directed to the classroom.
Pre-registration is required. CSU employees can register online, using instructions at http://www.training.colostate.edu/register.html
To register children, contact Ellen, (970) 491-1376
For more information on dates and times, please download the flyer.

1-BEEP (fingerprints, lost and found, pay a ticket or any bicycle related questions)
4-Request an officer for a special event
Remember if you are dealing with an emergency call 911
Due to confusion arising from the recent signing of House Bill 13-1224, CSU Police Department has suspended the program where students returning to campus were able to store firearms and firearm related equipment (ammunition, magazines, etc.) We have referred this matter to legal counsel, and are waiting recommendations on how to comply with the new law, and, if possible, continue to provide this service to our campus community. The department will still continue to store archery equipment, knives, martial arts equipment, and any other type of weapon that is not firearm related. The department is encouraging all students that had planned on using this weapons storage program to leave the firearm at home.
We will be updating the website if there are any changes to this policy. Remember that students are not allowed to bring any weapons into the Residence Halls and Dining Centers, CSU Apartments, or Health Network areas.
