Community Service Officer (CSO) Program

The Community Service Officer Program is designed to promote the personal and professional development of each and every Community Service Officer (CSO).

Our CSO Program is staffed by a cadre of up to 60 part-time student employees. The CSOs provide the BearWALK night safety escort service to students, faculty and staff. CSO activities provide a high-profile uniformed presence during the hours of darkness, and positively impact the coordinated safety efforts for the entire campus. The CSOs also provide a contracted presence in residence halls and libraries.  Additionally, in cooperation with UC Berkeley Parking & Transportation, the Night Safety and Door to Door Shuttles served over 140,000 passengers.
