"Click it or Ticket" Enforcement in Effect Through Nov. 10!

The Department of Police Services is enforcing seat belt usage as part of the "Click it or Ticket" campaign.

More than 15,000 lives are saved each year in the U.S. because drivers and their passengers were wearing seat belts when a crash occurred.

  • Seat Belts Reduce The Risk Of Fatal Injury By 45% For Front Seat Passenger Car Occupants & By 60% For Pickup Truck, SUV & Van Occupants
  • Airbags Combined With Seat Belts Provide The Greatest Protection For Adults
  • Help CSUN Officers In Their Efforts To Keep Drivers Safe By Ensuring You & Your Passengers Always “Click It”

Text to 911 Capability to Reach CSUN Police Services

Effective August 14, 2017 CSUN Police Services 911 center can accept text to 911 calls from the CSUN community.  Here is how it works:  Text to 911 is a free program for sending a text message addressed to “911” instead of placing a phone call.  To use it, you address the message to 911 and enter the emergency in the body of the text, making sure that you also add your exact location, or else our dispatch center won’t be able to dispatch help your way. Since it is all text based, you will hear a response for more follow-up questions, or when help is on the way.  Text-to-911 is useful for any situation in which it is dangerous or impossible to speak.  It also allows for improved technology for our deaf population on campus.

Should you have any questions about this new feature to reach CSUN Police in an emergency, please contact public information officer, Christina Villalobos at (818) 677-7922.

CSUN Police Strengthen Positive Relationship with Campus Community

To enhance the California State University, Northridge Department of Police Services’ strong relationship with the community, in late August 2017 officers began using body-worn cameras when in the field.

CSUN’s police department is one of the first in the CSU system to deploy the cameras. In addition to the transparency and accountability provided by the cameras’ recordings, numerous studies have shown they encourage respectful behavior by both officers and members of the public, said CSUN Chief of Police Anne Glavin. Members of the community will see the cameras on the upper center of the officer’s chest and a “red” light indicating the camera is active.

“We are proud of the positive relationship we have with the CSUN community and the level of trust that our community has in its police department,” Glavin said. “It is important that we always seek ways to improve the high-quality service expected of our department. This technology is being adopted by police departments across the country, and it’s our turn.”

Using body-worn cameras is just the latest example of CSUN police efforts to strengthen its relationship with and service to the campus community. Read More
