In July 2017, updates to the Cal Poly University Police Department's "Policy 428: Immigration Status Policy" were approved and implemented. This policy clarifies that:
Primary jurisdiction for enforcement of federal immigration laws concerning unlawful entry into the United States rests with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), not with the University Police.
The University Police will not enter into agreements with state or local law enforcement agencies, ICE, or any other federal agency for the enforcement of federal immigration law, except as consistent with California Government Code §§7282 et seq. or as required by law.
Learn more about campus policies and procedures by reading Poly 428 in full. Link to Policy 428: Immigration Status Policy.
The University Police Department will not honor ICE immigration hold requests, unless doing so is consistent with California Government Code § 7282.5 or as required by law.
Individuals will not be contacted, detained, questioned, or arrested solely on the basis of being or suspected of being an undocumented immigrant, except as required by law.
