The Department of Public Safety offers programs and presentations on crime prevention, personal safety, sexual assault awareness, self-defense, and fire safety and prevention. Presentations frequently involve experts from public and private organizations.
Prevention Through Awareness
As part of crime prevention programs, information on major incidents may be forwarded to certain university officials, the Office of Marketing Communications, and the campus newspaper, the Foghorn, when necessary. When circumstances require immediate notification throughout the university community, Crime Prevention Bulletins are produced and distributed through email and/or SMS text message.
Students, faculty, and staff are strongly encouraged to maintain updated contact information with the university in order to receive any emergency notifications.
Self-Defense for Women
Officers conduct self-defense classes for women upon request for groups on campus throughout the year. Each class combines lectures and hands-on training to teach rudimentary self-defense skills women can utilize to evade and avoid an attack.
Safety On The Street
Help keep yourself safe by practicing the techniques on the Safety on the Street tip sheet all year long.
For emergencies, call (415) 422-2911 or extension 2911 from any on-campus phone. Available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
