The University of Colorado Boulder Police Department is a full-service police department with divisions similar to a municipal department. These divisions include dispatch, fleet, operations (which includes patrol and investigations), professional standards, property and evidence, public information, and records.

Our Community Safety Officials (CSOs) provide professional staff security services for special events, in select buildings, and provide door lock monitoring services.

Our Residential Service Officers (RSOs) support our residential community, providing education and appropriate enforcement on lower-level violations in residence halls. 

The University of Colorado Boulder Police Department is also home of the University’s Emergency Management division. Working under the emergency manager, and side by side with the emergency management division, is the event security team. The campus is host to many special events every year, both large and small. The event security team are personnel who are dedicated to the security planning and successful completion of those events.
