Critical Response Unit
The California State University Critical Response Unit (CRU) is a highly trained unit with representation from most of the CSU campuses. The unit is available upon request to assist CSU campuses with critical incidents, emergencies and disasters. CRU officers are trained in crowd control, dignitary protection, and disaster relief. A special component of the CRU is the highly trained Specialized Entry and Rescue Team (SERT). The SERT officers are trained in high-risk building entries and hostage rescue.
