Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving | COPPS

UCSF Police Department enjoys building relationships with the UCSF Community.

UCSF PD prides itself on developing a greater rapport with community members, providing customer service, and promoting a deeper understanding of police activities through our COPPS Program: Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving. 

Under the COPPS philosophy, police officers are encouraged to become familiar with the UCSF community, listen to UCSF community member concerns, become more familiar with the infrastructure of the UCSF campus, and involve the UCSF community in problem-solving efforts. 

As part of the COPPS program, UCSF police officers are assigned a specific COPPS beat for the duration of a shift rotation (6 months).
