Establishing a Global Liaison Unit for outreach to international students

UC Davis Police establish Global Liaison Unit

The UC Davis Police department Global Liaison Unit (GLU) was established as the department’s response to the community’s request for targeted information for and attention to our international students and those groups who feel underrepresented in our community. Additionally, the program is a practical response to the campus motto "One World, One UC Davis" and is one of the many contributions the police department is striving to make in an effort to support and confirm the community’s conviction that at UC Davis, we are changing our world for the better.

There are many ways the UC Davis Police Department can support our international and unrepresented communities and below are just a few of the changes and/or additions we have incorporated into our services, to better serve all of our campus community members:

  • Implemented community based recruitment panels
  • Implemented quarterly Police Chief / Student Advisory Committee Meetings
  • Established one of a kind department Cadet Program
  • Continue to a Police Community Academy
  • Offer a Volunteers in Police Service Program (VIPS)
  • Created /implemented the police accountability board (PAB)
  • Created the Preferred Names Policy
  • Crafted open letter of support for the campus AB540 Program
  • Creation of the Safe Ride Program
  • Creation of the Global Liaison Unit (GLU)
