If you are a victim or a witness of a crime, report it to the University Police Department as soon as possible either in person or by calling 831-655-0268.

Annual Regulated Tools and Equipment Report

The CSUMB Police Department is committed to transparency, communication, and engagement with members of the campus community. In July of 2022, the Board of Trustees approved the system-wide Regulated Tools and Equipment policy as recommended by the Chiefs of Police representing the twenty-three University Police Departments.  This policy was adopted and published as outlined by Assembly Bill 481, and requires every law enforcement agency in the State of California to publish certain information annually regarding specified equipment.

Of the sixteen regulated types of equipment and tools, CSUMB PD utilizes only the FN-303 less lethal launchers.

To further our efforts toward transparency and communication, UPD will host a community engagement event to discuss the information contained within the 2022 Annual Regulated Tools Report. This community engagement event is open to all community members of CSU Monterey Bay.
