Connect with SCPD
The Santa Clara Police Department (SCPD) makes safety around Santa Clara University (SCU) a priority. By assigning a dedicated task force to patrol the area around campus on weekend nights, and making contact with students and faculty, SCPD is making a presence and a commitment to student safety.
The task force is called Team 200 and is made up of two to six officers.
At the beginning of the school year, Team 200 meets with SCU student government leaders and walks through the residential neighborhood around the University to discuss expectations and concerns. During these visits, informational items are distributed stressing the idea that SCU students are part of the broader community and should be aware of how their actions impact fellow residents. Students also receive information on first response notices, Santa Clara Municipal Codes and University's "Guide to Living Off Campus."
