UC Davis Students: Pizza night with your Chief of Police!

In early 2012, the Chief invited graduate and undergraduate students into the UC Davis Police Department in an effort to build a strong bond between the police and the community. This group continued to meet with the Chief and provide support and input on such topics as department policy and practices aimed at rebuilding community trust in the police department. This group has since been formalized and built into department policy to ensure students have a voice in how police services are provided on the Davis and Sacramento campuses. A copy of the formal bylaws can be found HERE.

Due to finals and summer, meetings are cancelled but will resume in the fall.

If you are a current UC Davis student and would like to participate, please contact the Student Assistant to the Chief, Kelsey McDonald at

Or, fill out this form.

The UC Davis Police Department is an active member of the UC Davis community.  We recognize our need to listen to community needs, seek input and engage in open dialogue. The UC Davis Police Department is committed to providing the highest level of service to the UC Davis community which can only be accomplished through community partnerships. Bottom line, we care about our community.
