Police Department

See something suspicious... say something specific.

CSUPD Station


To report any campus emergency dial 9-1-1 or 8-9-1-1 from any campus telephone. Most CSU phones have been upgraded with a dedicated "911" button near the upper right corner of the phone. This button provides direct contact with a CSU Police Dispatcher.

Cell phone users should dial 9-1-1 and tell the operator to connect them with CSU Police.

For non-emergencies, please call 216-687-2020.

To report potentially violent activity, 216-5BE-SAFE (523-7233).

Viking Safety Escorts

Faculty, staff, and students who feel unsure about their safety while walking on campus may request a Viking Safety Escort.  The Viking Safety Escort Service is not a taxi service but a safety option for those that have a genuine concern for their personal safety.   

Viking Safety Escorts are provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year by Security Officers and Student Campus Safety Officers (CSOs) for on-campus and nearby off-campus student housing locations only.

You may request a Viking Safety Escort through our Rave Guardian safety app or by contacting CSUPD at 216-687-2020.

Don't walk alone - use the Viking Safety Escort Service!   See Something Suspicious, Say Something Specific!
