The Davis Campus Patrol Division is commanded by Lieutenant Danny Sheffield.
Phone: (530) 752-6864
The Davis campus including UC Properties in the city of Davis are patrolled 24/7 by UC Davis Police Officers. Patrol officers respond to all calls for service from the community. They are responsible for handling a wide variety of duties including responding to emergencies, investigating crimes and filing reports, checking out suspicious persons and vehicles, conducting traffic accident investigations and enforcing all traffic laws. Officers take a very pro-active approach to reducing the opportunity for crime and work closely with members of the campus community to ensure a safe environment in which to work, play and learn. Our officers maintain a high level of visibility on the campus and work to identify and eliminate those conditions or situations that may be attractive to the criminal element. Patrol officers are the primary contact for campus community members.
Additional Patrol assignments include:
- Welfare checks (commonly used to check the welfare of a student at the request of a distant family member or sponsor)
- Safety escorts when host service not available and calls for service permit officer availability
