Safety & Preparedness

Safety and Security Committee

The Safety and Security Committee is a cross functional team whose mission is to advise on plans, strategies, and coordination of all safety, security and emergency issues for the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. This is accomplished through ongoing assessment of safety, security, and emergency response conditions at the university, the preparation and education of the university community, review and recommendations of best practices, and recommendations to university leadership.

The Safety and Security Committee meets once per month and consists of a cross section of members of the university community, many of whom have incident management team responsibilities during an emergency. The Chief of Police serves as the committee chairperson.

The university community is encouraged to share any concerns or ideas related to safety and security matters on campus by contacting the Safety and Security Committee.

To report any maintenance issues, including inoperable lights, malfunctioning doors and locks, overgrown vegetation, etc., you may contact Facilities and completing a work order request.

Additional safety information is available on the websites for UPD and at Safety and Compliance.
