The Associated Students of SDSU have established a Good Neighbor Program whose goals are to foster a positive and civil atmosphere around the SDSU campus and to heighten awareness among SDSU students of the relationship between personal conduct and the quality of life on campus and in the surrounding community. The program has established a Community Line where area residents can voice their concerns. Follow-up phone calls, correspondence and/or personal visits are offered by student peers in response to concerns. The Good Neighbor Program Community Line can be reached at (619) 594-SAFE (7233).

Mid-City Community Court
For certain misdemeanor quality-of-life crimes such as noise violations, offenders can avoid a criminal record by agreeing to have their case handled by the Mid-City Community Court. If they agree to participate, offenders are sanctioned by the Community Court Sanctioning Panel, which is composed of a deputy city attorney, case manager and two-four trained community members. Offenders are ordered to perform community service, attend rehabilitative and educational programs, and pay fines and administrative fees. If offenders comply and remain law-abiding for one year, they avoid having charges filed against them. For more information, contact the Mid-City Community Court Coordinator in the Office of the City Attorney, Neighborhood Prosecution Unit. Phone: (619) 533-5500.
