FAU Police Department's Role in Assisting Students
The Florida Atlantic University Police Department is a full-service police department with a twenty-four-hour dispatch center. The department is staffed with state-certified police officers and a variety of civilian positions. Our organizational chart reflects the various divisions within the department.
All FAU police officers have met the training requirements and the continuing education requirements mandated by state statute for all Florida police officers. In addition, all officers receive advanced, ongoing training that goes above and beyond the minimum requirements. Many of our officers hold advanced or specialized certifications. Officers are responsible for enforcing Florida criminal and traffic statutes, as well as FAU rules and regulations. The safety and well-being of the University community is our top priority and is achieved through a strong presence based on a community-oriented policing model.
