About Campus Security
Jacksonville University's Campus Security Department is a member of the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA) and the Florida Assoc. of Campus Safety & Security Administrators (FACSSA).
The mission of Campus Security is to provide a safe and secure campus that encourages an atmosphere that allows the campus community to achieve educational, professional, and institutional goals.
The Campus Security Department provides security on campus during all operating hours. Personnel assigned to the department conduct routine inspections of fire extinguishers, emergency phones, and AEDs. They respond to reported accidents and incidents on campus property. They handle the opening and closing of the campus and manage access control requests. Parking management and enforcement is also administered by campus security personnel. They work cooperatively with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office on the campus to prevent and resolve criminal activity.
