Events and Activities - Security - UCRPD


HEAT

Events may be required to provide proof of liability insurance, indemnification agreements and/or waivers of liability before the special event can be approved.

Security - UCRPD

UCRPD is one of the departments that must be involved in the pre-planning and research of all special events held on the University campus. The reasons for detailed planning are:

  • To provide a safe and secure environment
  • To prevent crime
  • To maintain order
  • To protect persons and property
  • To respond to and implement emergency services when required
  • To prepare for and request necessary emergency and non-emergency services
  • To determine the best methods for achieving these goals in a cost effective manner
UCRPD Special Event Staffing Matrix

The Police Department Staffing Matrix is a guideline to assist the planner in reasonably predicting the staffing levels necessary for their event. The number of the personnel assigned may vary as dictated by the nature of the particular event, or as calculated to be necessary by the Police Department, EH&S and UC Risk Manager and those responsible for the event. Ultimately, the decision of the Police Department regarding its deployment will prevail. Campus Policy #850-45
