Sonoma State University Police provides 24 hours a day police protection for the campus community. Sonoma State University Police Officers are vested with full law enforcement powers and responsibilities, identical to the local police and sheriff in your home community.

The officers are trained at a regional police academy and receive additional in-service and specialized training in first aid, CPR, firearms use, defensive tactics, legal updates, evidence gathering, traffic accident investigation, etc. All university police officers have full law enforcement authority throughout the state of California. They are responsible for a wide range of services including all crime reports, investigations, medical emergencies, traffic accidents and Community Oriented Partnership Policing Strategy (COPPS). The COPPS Program is designed so that police officers assigned a specialty may educate the campus on topics such as sexual assault prevention, substance abuse, general crime prevention and alarms.
