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 including Campus ConnectionR.A.D., and Safe Place. We encourage all students and community members to educate themselves about our campus safety initiatives.
