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 will pride 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 will successfully hire talented individuals from diverse backgrounds who are committed to serve you. They will 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 will be 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. To accomplish this, the department will implement several programs including a newly created Children and Police Engaged in Learning, Personal Safety, Community Watch, Law N You,  and a Bicycle Rodeo to name a few. I would like to emphasize that we will strive to hire the best and brightest officers and we 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.

FAMU Police Department Awarded Accreditation

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Department of Campus Safety and Security at Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University (FAMU) is among a small group of state university police departments to receive a prestigious recognition.

Recently, the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA) awarded the division initial accreditation status, making it only the seventh state university police department to receive the acknowledgement.  

An extensive independent inspection of departmental policies and procedures was conducted in October 2014. Officials reviewed written documentation and agency operations, conducted personnel interviews, and held facility inspections to ensure compliance with the accreditation standards set by the CFA. 

Achieving accredited status is the highest recognition of excellence in law enforcement and provides reduced risk and liability exposure, stronger defense against civil lawsuits, and increased community advocacy.

Director of Campus Safety & Security and Chief of Police Terence M. Calloway, MJA, accepted the notice of accreditation on behalf of the department.

“Achieving accreditation proves that the men and women of the FAMU Department of Campus Safety and Security meet the highest level of professionalism. It is my goal to maintain this status of excellence,” said Calloway.
