Limited Voluntary Confidential Reporting

The University Police Department encourages anyone who is the victim or witness of any crime to promptly report the incident to the police. Because police reports are pubic records under state law, the University Police Department cannot hold reports of crime in confidence. Confidential reports for purposes of inclusion in the annual disclosure of crime statistics can generally be made to other CSULB campus security authorities, as identified above.

Psychological counselors when acting within the scope of his or her licence or certificate are not considered to be campus security authority and are not required to report crimes for inclusion into the annual disclosure of crime statistics. They are encouraged; if and when they deem it appropriate, to inform persons being counceled of the procedures to report crimes on a voluntary basis for the inclusion into the annual crime statistics.

Tip: Be proactive

Report suspicious activities as soon as possible
(562) 985-4101
