What power does the department of public safety on campus have?

<p>Compared to the police department of the city?</p>

<p>UC's have their own police department but their jurisdiction is within the campus only. Or are you talking about the non-police public safety?</p>

<p>The ones at CCCs? Like this one SMCCCD</a> - Public Safety</p>

<p>Yes</p>

<p>10 char</p>

<p>So can they actually arrest people like the local PD? Or do they just act as an private security agency?</p>

<p>Yes. But they are "higher" than the private security agency because the Public Safety actually have police training.</p>

<p>I see, thanks!</p>
