Safety in the Theatre District

La Jolla Playhouse works with the UCSD Police Department and UCSD Transportation and Parking Services, which operates the parking lot and security system, to maintain and improve security conditions for patrons and staff.

Patrons and staff are welcome to use UCSD Community Service Officers (CSOs) for an escort to their cars by calling (858) 534-WALK (9255). If you have more questions about security please contact UCSD Police at (858) 534-HELP (4357). The CSO Program employs only UCSD students.

Call extension (858) 534-WALK or (858) 534-9255 for a safety escort. Community Service Officers (CSOs) offer this service from sunset to 1 a.m. every day of the year. After 1 a.m., this service may be handled by other police department personnel.

In addition to serving as safety escorts, CSOs also:
