UCIV is a public program that acts as a mediator between police officers and the community. In the wake of an ever-increasing police presence within Isla Vista, the EVPLA office finds it imperative to look for alternative methods to law enforcement responses in our community. To ensure all residents and UCSB Students of all backgrounds feel protected and at peace in Isla Vista, a student-led mediator program between police officers and the community is needed now more than ever. One way we hope to increase initiatives for a community-based first response to safety concerns is through UCIV!
