Patrol Division

Lt. Henry C. Marquez
Patrol Lieutenant


The Patrol Division of the Department of Public Safety handles all emergency calls and crimes in progress. It investigates all non-violent property crimes that occur on campus pursuant to a Memorandum of Understanding with the San Diego Police Department. Officers receive training in criminal law, patrol procedures, firearms, use of force, investigations, report writing, first aid, CPR, and the use of Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs). 


Shifts are staggered to ensure appropriate coverage in the field during breaks and shift changes. Methods of Patrol include marked vehicles, bicycle and walking units. Emphasis is placed on safety and crime prevention through the use of highly visible uniformed officers who patrol the campus roadways, enforce traffic violations and conduct walk-throughs of campus buildings.

Escort Service

Public Safety provides escort service from locations on campus at any time of the day or night for persons uncomfortable walking alone or in fear for their safety.

Response Times

The safety of our students, faculty, staff and guests is our primary concern. Response times for routine calls can vary depending on campus emergencies, University activity and general call volume.
