On behalf of the Colorado State University Police Department, I want to welcome you to our beautiful, virtual campus! This website was designed to provide an overview of the many core services and resources available through the CSU Department.  

As a campus police agency, we are committed to working with all our stakeholders to maintain a safe environment which supports the academic mission of the University, and the health and wellness of the community. Our Department is comprised of law enforcement and civilian professionals who recognize the importance of a guardian-centric approach. In action, this philosophy prioritizes education over enforcement whenever reasonably possible. By collaborating with a variety of campus resources, this wholistic approach places emphasis on student retention and student success, without compromising safety.

As a community partner, I ask that you do your part and promptly report safety concerns. If you are ever in doubt, err on the side of caution and call 911 for an emergency and 970-491-6425 for non-emergencies.

I encourage you to spend some time to familiarize yourself with the safety information included on this site and learn how you can partner with us to promote a safe community for everyone.

Interim Executive Director of Campus Safety and Security
