Campus Public Safety Department (CPSD)

The mission of the CPSD is to provide a safe and secure campus environment for all members of the college campus community. This mission is achieved through active participation of all college members, and partnerships with local law enforcement and community partners. 

In late May 2013, the Campus Public Safety Department (CPSD) at Kaua`i Community College was established. The CPSD handles daily response to incidents, emphasizes crime prevention, and encourages education of students, faculty, staff, and visitors to ensure a safe and secure college environment. 

We plan to accomplish these goals by fostering ongoing relationships with community partners and providing opportunities for training, gatherings and discussion in all areas of Campus Public Safety; including Safety, Security, Emergency Preparedness, and Crime Prevention.
