The University of Colorado Boulder Police Department is a full-service police department with divisions similar to a municipal department, as well as some divisions not typically found in a municipal department. 

These divisions include Operations, which is comprised of patrol, an investigations section, residential service officers (RSO) and community safety officials (CSO) units, and two embedded positions - a licensed mental health clinician and a victim advocate.

The Professional Standards & Training division includes recruitment and hiring, internal affairs, training and accreditation.

The Administration division includes information technology, crime analysis and administrative support. 

CUPD also includes the emergency communications (dispatch) center, property and evidence section, and a police records section.

CSOs and RSOs 

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.                                                                                             CSO group in uniform working on the CU Boulder campus
