In spite of the pastoral appearance and friendly atmosphere of Chico and its surroundings, the campus is not a haven from crime.

Please remember that:

  • Awareness is the most critical factor in the personal safety equation!
  • If your attention to surroundings is compromised by intoxication, fatigue, or preoccupation, you operate at a disadvantage and have a greater potential for being victimized.

The CSU, Chico Police Department offers several crime prevention programs and services to assist you.  Among these are Campus ConnectionFreshman Safe StartR.A.D., and other crime prevention presentations which are available on an "as needed" basis.

The CSU, Chico Police Department has several safety brochures available in the lobby.
