Join us on Wednesday evenings in January, 2020 for a ten-week course with fun hands-on activities. The class is free, and we provide dinner! Topics include: laws of arrest, CSI vs. Reality, pulling over vehicles and DUI investigations!
Community Police Academy
Due to the pandemic, and the design of the Community Police Academy course as experiential learning, we are postponing this year’s course until a viable alternative is available or until the health risks associated with group meetings has subsided. We look forward to convening again in the future and having more opportunities to learn from and with our community members.
For more information and to see the 2020 class syllabus, see the link below.
Faculty and staff residing in University housing may request a security assessment by trained SUDPS crime prevention staff. Stanford building managers may also request an assessment of their facilities.
The assessment will include a review of areas such as doors, locks, windows, and the general perimeter.
If you are going to be away from your home for a period of time and wish the Department of Public Safety to check your home periodically, complete the following form and return it to SUDPS (If you are a frequent traveler, please send us updated information on your absences).
