ChiefWelcome to San Francisco State University.

I would like to welcome all new and returning faculty, staff, and students to San Francisco State University. As members of the SFSU campus community we all share the responsibility of maintaining a safe and healthy environment. Your safety while at San Francisco State University is the primary concern of the University Police Department.

The San Francisco State University Police Department operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, year round. There are trained emergency dispatchers that answer the phones 24 hours a day and there is always a police officer on duty who will respond to calls for assistance .
