CSO Services

Community Service Officers (CSO) are available to assist with your campus needs such as weekend door unlocks or general event security. CSOs are specially trained to serve as the extended "eyes and ears" for our police officers. If an emergency should arise, they can use their radios to quickly dispatch for emergency services.
