CSO Program

Police Community Service Officers (CSOs) are paid student assistants. Providing additional “eyes and ears”, CSOs work in the Library, Residential Halls/Suites, and adjoining parking lots. Patrol activities are on foot and vehicle, and are an excellent method of connecting with the community as well as presenting a positive image of law enforcement to students, staff, and faculty. In addition to patrol, CSO's also work special events and details such as commencement, festivals, and overnight equipment watch.

CSOs carry a police radio for safety and to communicate with the dispatcher/police officers. CSOs assist in medical aids, traffic control, and other various duties. Experience as a Police CSO is beneficial for those planning for, or considering a law enforcement or related career. An ideal CSO candidate is motivated, takes initiative, and possesses positive communication skills. A background check is also required for CSO employment. For more information or to apply, contact Kris Surber at (909) 869-4139 or klsurber@csupomona.edu
