Welcome to the official website of the University of California Riverside Police Department. The UCR Police Department was established in 1954 on this campus. The Police Department is a professional police agency staffed by individuals who cherish and preserve the highest standards of conduct and performance.

The mission of our department is to heighten the quality of life on campus by providing a safe and secure environment through professional service to the University community.  In order to be successful in this mission, we need to maintain the public's trust and pursue a partnership with our community.  Please contact me with any feedback you have on our service.
