Police Department

See something... say something.


It is the mission of the Division of Campus Safety to support the University's academic, financial, and community strategic initiatives, priorities, and goals by maintaining a safe, peaceful, and orderly campus.  In achieving this goal, it is the duty and responsibility of each member at all levels of employment within the division to consistently exhibit the highest standards of service, performance, and professionalism, both internally and externally.


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.

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!
