Residence Halls

All security activity in UC residence halls is supervised by the Residential Security Sergeant. 

Each of the high rise buildings have a Security Monitor (SM). In addition, Community Service Officers (student employees of UCPD also known as CSOs) patrol the residence halls during the evening hours.

Resident Assistants provide safety programs for students, especially at the beginning of the year, and each unit is  assigned a UCPD officer (a Residential Security Liaison) for additional coordination and information exchange.

How to compile CSA statistics

How to Compile Statistics

Fundamentally, Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) are responsible for collecting and reporting the incidence of only certain crimes which have occurred in certain areas. A CSA must make a report if they observe an incident, or if it is reported directly to them by any person (includig faculty, staff, student, or non-affiliated person), whether that person was an observer, or a person affected by the crime.
