Limited Voluntary Confidential Reporting:
The University Police Department encourages anyone who is the victim or witness of any crime to promptly report the incident to the police. Because police reports are public records under state law, the University Police Department cannot hold reports of crime in confidence. Confidential reports for purposes of inclusion in the annual disclosure of crime statistics can generally be made to other CSULB campus security authorities, as identified above.
Psychological counselors when acting within the scope of his/her licence or certificate are not considered to be a campus security authority and are not required to report crimes for inclusion into the annual disclosure of crime statistics. They are encouraged; if and when they deem it appropriate, to inform persons being counseled of the procedures to report crimes on a voluntary basis for inclusion into the annual crime statistics.
Ride Along Requests:
To request a ride along in a patrol unit, please contact the UPD non-emergency line at 562.985.4101 and ask to speak to the Watch Commander.
