Police Department

Campus Safety Officer Program

CSO Program

The Cleveland State University Police Department (CSUPD) has partnered with the Career Services Department to provide the opportunity for CSU students to act as an additional uniformed presence in support of CSUPD initiatives.  These Campus Safety Officers (CSO) perform safety escorts; they tour and monitor CSU buildings; and, they observe and report hazardous conditions, suspicious persons or incidents, and unattended property.  CSOs will utilize the CSUPD dispatching system to communicate with CSUPD field personnel and dispatchers.  They will learn to maintain documentation of their shift activities.  By interacting with other members of the CSU community, they will strengthen their interpersonal communication and customer service skills.  CSUPD provides this opportunity so students can gauge their interest in a law enforcement career.
