A unique venture the UAPD offers for University students, is the Community Service Officer (CSO) program. University students are employed by the police department, trained, and then deployed into field patrol on foot or bicycle. CSOs act as the eyes and ears for the police department. CSOs also assist officers and Police Aides by taking certain criminal reports such as bicycle thefts and other larcenies. In addition, they provide assistance to the University community by responding to requests for escorts, public assists, and non-criminal alarms. Students may also assist in other facets of the department such as Property & Evidence, Special Events, Dispatching, Administration and Investigations.
