Community Service Officer (CSO) Program



Our CSO Program is staffed by a cadre of up to 60 part-time student employees. The CSOs provide the BearWALK night safety escort service to students, faculty and staff. CSO activities provide a high-profile uniformed presence during the hours of darkness, and positively impact the coordinated safety efforts for the entire campus. The CSOs also provide a contracted presence in residence halls and libraries.  Additionally, in cooperation with UC Berkeley Parking & Transportation, the Night Safety and Door to Door Shuttles served over 140,000 passengers.
