Who We Are & What We Do...

CCUPCA was founded in 1982 to represent and promote the interests of safety and security among the public and private institutions of higher education throughout California.

For over four decades, we've created one forum for law enforcement and public safety leaders in California’s educational law enforcement agencies. We share resources, experiences, skills and talent to foster a cohesive and sustained initiative in improving safety mandates on school campuses primarily through changes in State legislation. Our two annual conferences allow our members to forge strong professional relationships lending to an ever-stronger statewide association.

California College and University Police Chiefs Association (CCUPCA) is committed to strengthening the political voice of higher educational campus safety by working with legislators on issues which affect the safety of the students, faculty, and staff of California’s colleges and universities.
