Today, the University of Toronto Campus Police is responsible for the safety of over 80,000 students, faculty and staff, in addition to the thousands of visitors to the University each day.The University of Toronto Campus Police is commanded by three Police (Special Constable) managers assigned to each campus (St. George, Scarborough and Erindale). Several platoons have been organized which consist of Staff Sergeants, Corporals and Constables. These platoons of officers provide policing services to the University around the clock, 365 days per year. Each platoon consists of specialized officers who are trained in general and advanced patrol functions. In addition, officers are also trained in advanced criminal investigation functions, including SOCO (scene of crime officer). Campus Police SOCO officers will examine crime scenes for trace evidence and submit their findings to Toronto Police Forensic Identification Unit.University of Toronto Campus Police Special Constables are sworn in as Peace Officers through the Toronto Police and Peel Police Services Boards after being approved by the Provincial Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services. Special Constables are appointed as Peace Officers under the Ontario Police Services Act. This appointment under the Act confers police authority on Campus Police officers as per the agreement with Toronto and Peel Regional Police Services Boards. Campus Police possess powers of arrest, search and seizure. They also have the authority and discretion to lay criminal and provincial offence charges. Offenders who are taken into custody by University of Toronto Campus Police are transported to city/regional police detention centers for holding and processing. Campus Police provide specialized policing services tailored to the University Community they serve, which otherwise may not be provided by the jurisdictional police. Criminal/provincial offence occurrences which occur within the University community are investigated by the U of T Campus Police who prepares jurisdictional police reports which are then submitted to Toronto or Peel Police as per the Special Constable Service agreement.
