Police Communications

The Communications Center operates year-round, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Center, staffed by communication operators, receives all telephone calls for service or emergency assistance. Police Communications Operators (PCOs) are state certified by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Criminal Justice Information Services after completing the required training course. They are the first point of contact for walk-in customers seeking police services or information--and must know a large amount of information, and be able to quickly find much more. These professionals are responsible for receiving, and documenting calls from citizens, dispatching resources as necessary, monitoring alarms, performing records checks, relaying information, and coordinating mutual aid requests from other agencies.

Call 911 from a campus telephone, or (850) 599-3256 from your cell phone to report an emergency on campus.
