The Mission of the Cuesta College Department of Public Safety and Police Department is to assist the education process by providing a safe and secure learning environment for students, staff, faculty, and visiting members of the community.

We offer a wide range of everyday services in addition to our law enforcement responsibilities. These services include escort services, crime prevention information, stranded motorist assistance, medical aid, and fingerprint services.

In cases of emergency, we provide immediate responses as well as providing situational warnings and updates through the ALERT-U notification system.  We also provide EARLY WARNING notices of any criminal assaults and other acts that could pose an immediate threat to anyone on campus.  Additional information can be found on the Megan's Law website.

The Department of Public Safety and Police Department is here to serve the needs of Cuesta College. Please feel free to contact us for additional information or assistance. Our number is (805) 546-3205.
