The Department of Campus Safety & Security

Welcome to the Department of Campus Safety & Security (commonly known as FAMU Police) on the World Wide Web.

The men and women of this department are committed to serving the students, visitors, faculty and staff of Florida A&M University by providing excellent services within our community and providing an environment where people can live, visit and work safely without fear. The Department prides itself on providing high quality service to the community while fostering an environment that encourages and promotes personal growth and excellence for students, visitors, faculty and staff. Our greatest asset has always been you—the Community. We successfully hire talented individuals from diverse backgrounds who are committed to serve you. They understand the importance of what they do and have a strong sense of duty when it comes to protecting and serving the students, visitors, faculty and staff within FAMU. Their efforts, hard work, and courage are a great source of pride for our department.

The FAMU Department of Campus Safety & Security will strive to meet and exceed the challenges facing us each and every day. We would like to emphasize that we will strive to hire the best and brightest officers and will always seek candidates with outstanding qualities as we strive to ascertain both local and national recognition. We look for officers that demonstrate integrity and responsibility; are community orientated, and can appreciate diversity. Above all, we look for officers who will understand the value of community policing, safe schools and want to be a part of the FAMU family and will assist the students, visitors, faculty and staff to help make FAMU an enjoyable place to learn, work, and visit. Community Involvement and Transparency is what we strive for.
