Mission Statement

The Florida Memorial University Campus Safety Department is dedicated to providing and maintaining a safe and friendly environment through the protection of life, property and constitutional human rights. To understand and serve the needs of all persons within the university community, to treat all persons fairly and equally, while maintaining an atmosphere that enhances the educational process. To ensure that the business of the university of learning and teaching – can be accomplished for the benefit of all students, faculty and staff.

The department understands the overall academic mission of the university and will strive to play a vital role in enhancing that mission. Concern for the community’s well-being, a desire to provide service and assistance whenever possible, and a constant desire to support the academic environment are all factors inherent in the department’s daily operations and policies.

The safety we have experienced on the campus of Florida Memorial University is due in part to the combined efforts of many different departments and individuals. Safety is a community responsibility and we rely on all community members to contribute to security on campus by reporting suspicious activities (See Something Say Something) and using common sense when going about their daily activities.

The Department of Public Safety is primarily responsible for developing services, programs, and strategies for maintaining a safe campus. We rely on our collaborative relationships with community members to fulfill that responsibility. We are committed to the philosophy of community-oriented public safety and problem solving.
