On behalf of the SDSU Police Department, welcome to the new semester.  Your safety is our top priority.  We encourage you to review the following safety information and reminders.


  • Call 9-1-1 from your cell phone or any campus phone to report a crime in progress or life-threating emergency.  "Blue Light" emergency phones are located throughout campus and can be used for reporting emergencies.


  •  Call 619-594-1991 to report non-emergencies or to contact the police department.

  • Be aware of your surroundings and avoid distractions such as talking on your cell phone. Walk in groups whenever possible and report suspicious activity by calling 9-1-1.

  • Aztec Shield Mobile App is a free app for text and video reporting of crimes and other police-related issues.  You may download this app from your app store.

  • Secure your belongings by locking your doors and windows, including properly locking your bike and keeping valuables out of sight.

  • Free bicycle U-locks are available when you register your bike at the SDSU Police Department.

  • Do not leave valuables unattended such as backbacks, laptops or cell  phones.

  • Use the Safety Escort Service, available from dusk to dawn to and from on-campus locations by calling 619-594-6659.  The SDSU library shuttle also operates from the library to any on-campus location or parking area.
