University Police Department
Regional Dispatch Center
The University Police Department (UPD) has realigned the Communications Center to become a Regional Dispatch Center. In addition to San José State, the center now includes service for California Maritime Academy and Foothill-DeAnza College. New protocols and procedures have been established to differentiate between the campuses and their individual needs. UPD is hiring two Dispatchers to handle the increased radio traffic. In addition, UPD is transitioning to digital radio equipment which is already used by the rest of campus. This will assist with resolving current reception issues.
