The CSU Police Department is a fully authorized state police agency, providing both police and security services to both the Main and RiverPark campuses. The Department collaborates regularly with the city of Columbus Police Department and other regional law enforcement agencies.

Led by Chief Rus Drew (Left) the Department utilizes a philosophy of community policing that integrates crime prevention, problem resolution, and community involvement to provide the support and service deserved by CSU guests, students, and employees.

Headquarters for CSU Police is located next to the Elizabeth Bradley Turner Center, on the corner of College Drive and East Lindsey Drive (www.ColumbusState.edu/maps/). Officers also work from a police station on the CSU RiverPark campus in downtown Columbus.
