On Friday & Saturday nights the IVCSD contracts with UCPD to station CSOs at 2 tent locations in Isla Vista. These safety stations serve as a hub for free quick response escorts home, distribution of water, and ability to charge phones. This program started in 2017 and operates August-June of each year, except in 2020 when it closed for the COVID-19 pandemic in March and reopened Halloween Weekend 2020.

The IVCSD currently provides funding for a specialized detective from UCPD to investigate interpersonal violence crimes like sexual assault and stalking in Isla Vista and work proactively to educate the community on these crimes. How can our detective better serve the community in investigating and preventing these crimes?
This program began in 2018 with support and leadership from student organizations organizing for better law enforcement responses to crimes of sexual assault. The contract was recently renewed until June 2021 with additional language to support outreach to groups focused on racial equity. More information can be found here:
