23-Campus California State University Police Departments Join CCUPCA

The entire California State University and its 23-campus Police Departments officially became members of the California College & University Police Chiefs Association, effective January 1, 2016.

The California State University, with its 23 campuses, 460,000 students, and 47,000 faculty and staff, are the largest, and among the most diverse university systems in the country.

The police departments that serve each campus are independent, dedicated police departments are fully-certified by the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards & Training (POST), employing sworn police officers as defined by Penal Code Section 830.2 (c).

CCUPCA is proud of the ongoing relationship with each of these dedicated agencies, and is proud of the very unique and progressive alliance they will share for the future.


CCUPCA Legislative Chair Participates at 2016 NAICU Conference

CCUPCA Legislative Chair Stan Skipworth was an invited panelist at the National Association of Independent Colleges & Universities at its annual conference in Washington D.C., on January 31st and February 1st.

Skipworth participated on a panel to share effective strategies to break down barriers to effective communications with campus and local communities. In the wake of serious incidents ranging from protests on campus or the San Bernardino shooting, to the many day-to-day events that are shared with students, faculty, and staff, representatives from NAICU-member campuses demonstrated how to open new lines of communication in new ways, humanizing interactions via technology, and keeping stakeholders informed in the moment.

Skipworth also outlined the need for greater consistency in statutory laws in California and other states that would bring greater training, equipment, legal resources & laws and access to information largely limited to public higher education law enforcement agencies.

Panelists also included: Ronnell Higgins, Chief of Police, Yale University; Steven Lake, Director Safety and Security, Carson-Newman University; and Gus Porter, MPH, Emergency Preparedness and Safety Coordinator, High Point University.
