The Campus Safety Officer Program, started fall 2016, includes full-time police officers on campus under the direction of Director of Campus Safety and Student Conduct, Pua Utu. CMU's police officers work in conjunction with five officers from the Grand Junction Police Department (GJPD) assigned to the campus for a three-year term. The officers assigned to the campus have a station located on the northside of campus at 1060 Orchard Avenue. 

GJPD partners with CMU to provide a safe environment and open dialog between law enforcement and community members. Officers provide trainings and partner with Student Life and Residence Life to provide programs for students that build strong relationships, build trust, and deter criminal situations.
