ARREST, BOOKING AND BAIL PROCESS
Since there is not a jail located at the Cal Poly Police Department, when someone is arrested on or around the campus or surrounding areas, they will be transported to the San Luis Obispo Jail, located on Kansas Ave.
During the booking process, the arrestee will be fingerprinted, photographed, and will undergo a background check for any warrants or holds. Then they will be processed into the jail computer system. This process can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours to complete. Release from the SLO jail can take anywhere from 4 to 6 hours, depending on the defendant's various circumstances and the staff at the jail.
In accordance with California Penal Code Section 851.1, once the booking process is complete, the arrestee will be allowed to make telephone calls. Inmates booked into the San Luis Obispo County jail are eligible to be released on bail or bond, unless otherwise specified by a warrant, court order or bail schedule.
Our agents can post bail at the San Luis Obispo County jail, 24-hours a day and can handle everything you need by fax, email or phone. Further, we can meet you at the campus, your office, home or directly at the jail. We want to make the process for you a fast and easy one.

ESCORT SERVICE BY VAN
The members of the campus community are expected to take steps to insure their own safety. However, the University Police Department does provide students an escort van service through the Community Service Officer Division.
This service provides a ride from designated pick up points to anywhere on campus or up to 1/2 mile off campus. The service is not provided during academic breaks or holidays. They will attempt to accommodate special requests in an emergency or unusual circumstance.
ON CAMPUS CRIME PREVENTION
The Community Outreach and Crime Prevention division of the University Police Department builds relationships. It also engages the community in various non-traditional activities intended to increase safety and reduce criminal activity on and around the Cal Poly campus.
The University also maintains a widely distributed on-campus network of "Blue Light" emergency telephones. Each bright blue phone is identified by a blue light to help locate the phone at night. Pressing a button on the phone will connect the caller directly with a 9-1-1 Dispatcher at the University Police Department Communications Center.
This on-campus center is staffed 365 days a year by trained and experienced Police Dispatchers.
