We do this so we can provide the best possible service as a college police department in California. I ask you to follow us on our social media platforms and make sure you're up to date on our    emergency notifications on our campuses.  Our agency will be rolling out new programs, monthly giveaways for students, online parking permits and so much more in 2023!   

I am humbled and honored to serve as your Chief of Police and welcome feedback, you can reach out to our station by emailing: or calling (805) 546-3205.  CCPD is striving to ensure your success here at the campus but also want you to graduate with our ideals, YOUR police department is here for you.
