FSU Police Department

Florida State University's Police Department (FSUPD) is responsible for all safety, security, and law enforcement functions on FSU owned or leased campus properties. The FSUPD is comprised of sworn law enforcement officers and supported by non-sworn security staff who patrol and respond to calls for service on the FSU campuses in Tallahassee and in Panama City. In addition to providing patrol, crime prevention, investigative, and Real-Time Crime Center services to the community, the Department promotes campus safety and security by presenting public-safety programming and classes at the FSUPD headquarters, residence halls, Greek organizations, scholarships houses, and other locations on and surrounding the FSU campus properties.

FSUPD is part of the Capital Region Real-Time Crime Center (CRRTCC), which is a local interagency between the FSU Police Department, Leon County Sheriff's Office, Tallahassee Police Department and Florida Department of Law Enforcement tasked with improving communication, intelligence sharing and coordination between state, county and city law enforcement agencies. The FSU College of Criminology and Criminal Justice is also a partner of the CRRTCC by using researchers and students to provide innovative, timely and comprehensive analysis of crime data to the CRRTCC analysts and law enforcement partners in an effort to keep the community safe.

The FSUPD is a State accredited full-service police agency which operates year-round 24 hours a day.

The Police Department also houses the University's office of Campus Access and Security Services (CASS), responsible for the implementation and management of a wide array of security and safety related technologies including card access, burglar alarm systems, CCTV and LPR systems across FSU campuses.

Likewise, the Office of Emergency Management (EM) is also housed within the FSUPD. This Office is charged with the facilitation of the University's all-hazards emergency framework that drives preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation actions for a variety of emergency conditions. This is accomplished by a comprehensive approach that includes engaging internal and external stakeholders in plan development, training, exercises, and outreach. Emergency Management coordinates, FSUALERTS, the University's emergency alert and notification process and maintains constant situational awareness of conditions that could adversely affect the health, safety, and/or general welfare of students, faculty, staff, visitors, and families.

The FSU Police Department and the Office of Emergency Management collaborate on plans and maintain mutual aid agreements with state, county and local law enforcement and emergency management agencies in both Leon County for the Tallahassee campus, and Bay County for the Panama City campus.

Florida State University's Annual Security and Fire Safety Report, prepared in compliance with the Campus Security Act of 1990, is published and distributed annually online, with a hard-copy available upon request. This report describes safety programs and security services available at the University. It also contains crime statistics; safety tips, emergency numbers, and policy statements, concerning alcohol and drug use, emergency notifications, crime prevention, and sexual assault; and the process for reporting of crimes and other safety related resources. Copies are available in person at the FSU PD, online at and via the SeminoleSafe App.

Radio and Television

The University-owned and operated WFSU-FM and WFSQ-FM are Tallahassee's only listener-supported, noncommercial public radio stations. Listeners tune into classical music, jazz, big band, and new-age music on WFSQ, and listen to local and state news and information programs through National and Florida Public Radio on WFSU.

Florida State University students interested in a career in broadcasting are encouraged to participate in the station's volunteer and internship programs. Participants are given an opportunity to work within a professional public-radio setting and gain valuable experience in many facets of the station's operation, including programming, production, announcing, public relations, and management.

WFSU-TV is an award-winning, noncommercial public television station licensed to the State Board of Education and operated by Florida State University. One of the fastest growing PBS stations in the nation, it recently extended coverage to the western area of the state transmitting on Channel 56, WFSG-TV, Panama City.

Both WFSG-TV and WFSU-TV broadcast PBS favorites and locally produced programs that offer news and feature stories, sports events, and community-interest spots.

Fund-raisers, staffed entirely by volunteers, give students an opportunity to gain broadcasting experience as members of the camera crew or production staff. Another way to learn production, public relations, or fund-raising techniques is through a professional-level internship, available only to a few students who are willing to invest a great deal of time and energy.
