Public Safety Camera Program

The UC San Diego Police Department uses a centralized video surveillance management system for the purposes of detection, mitigation and historical archival of criminal activity and to help meet its mission of maintaining a safe community for education, research and public service. Operates and maintenance of a centralized physical security management system, which includes video surveillance, access control, mass notification, alarms and other physical security detection devices, supports UC San Diego’s comprehensive security plan.

We conduct video surveillance of public areas for security purposes in a manner consistent with all existing university policies, including the Non-Discrimination Policy and Sexual Harassment Policy. The design, installation and deployment of these systems, including the recording and use of data gathered through this platform, comply with rules governing rights to free speech and expression as well as privacy.

We recommend that all university departments utilize our existing video management system to maximize viewing capability, interoperability and reduce initial and recurring costs.
