University Police will normally maintain incident command on any multi-jurisdictional response to the incident. However, in the event of a mass casualty or search and rescue operation incident command will normally be transitioned to the Long Beach Fire Department upon their arrival at the incident.
The University Police Incident Commander will be responsible for ensuring that the appropriate level of notifications are made to the University Police Administration and that the appropriate reports are filed detailing the incident.
