Department of Campus Safety & Security

 Lost & Found Property


The gathering and maintenance of property and evidence is an essential function of law enforcement duties. At the Florida A&M University Department of Campus Safety & Security, this function falls under the direction of the Administrative Section.  The department has very specific standards and directives that detail the documentation of possession, transfer of custody, security, accountability, and disposal of property or evidence that comes into the possession of the department.

The Evidence Custodian, as assigned by the Department Chief, is responsible for supervising the chain of custody relating to property and evidence.

Property that is turned in as found may be claimed by appointment only at the Florida A&M University Department of Campus Safety & Security. To claim your lost property, you must provide proof of ownership and present a valid Photo ID. Found property is held 90 days and then disposed of in accordance with Florida Statutes.

There is no lost or found property at this time.

If you have an inquiry regarding lost and found property, please feel free to call (850) 599-3256 Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (except on university or national holidays).
