Associate Vice President of Public Safety & Chief of Police

The safety and well-being of our campus community is our top priority.

With more than 70,000 students, 12,000 employees, and thousands of visitors, UCF Public Safety has a big job in keeping the campus safe. We rely on our more than 80 sworn officers; an exceptional support staff; and campus, community and law enforcement partners to support the secure, inclusive and welcoming campus environment we all enjoy.

We all play a role in keeping our community safe, and I encourage you to explore this website to learn more about who we are, what we do, and what services we offer to those in our community.

Most importantly, never be afraid to reach out for help. That’s what we’re here for.

Stay safe, and Charge On!
