Community Service Officer Program

community service officers

The police department employs only UC San Diego students as Community Service Officers (CSO) who provide many safety-related services, including year-round campus safety escorts from sunset to 1 a.m. daily. After 1 a.m., police department staff may provide this service. CSOs also staff Triton Rides, a free nighttime shuttle service available from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m.

Request a Safety Escort

Call extension 4-WALK or (858) 534-9255.

You can arrange to have a repeating escort so a CSO will meet you at the same place and time based on your schedule. This makes it more convenient to get an escort after a late class or practice.

Additional CSO Duties

  • Patrol parking lots
  • Lock buildings
  • Provide additional security at campus events
  • Assist with medical emergencies (all CSOs are trained in CPR/First Aid)
