Requests for security officers to work special events on campus will follow these guidelines. Certain events may require additional security staffing based on the nature of the event or particular circumstances. The Director or his/her designee will determine staffing needs outside the guidelines based on all relevant factors.
Requests for officers are required 72 hours (three days) in advance of the event for one officer. An additional 24 hour (one day) notice is required for every additional officer requested (four days for two officers, five days for three officers, etc.). Police & Security Services cannot guarantee requests made outside of these timeframes.
There is a three hour minimum for any event. Iif you only need an officer for one hour, you will still be charged for the minimum three hours. As of 7/1/13, the charge per hour for an officer is $35.
If an event is cancelled, we require four hours notice to notify the officers scheduled to work. Otherwise, the three hour minimum charge will still be in effect.
Campus departments/groups requesting services must provide a speedtype prior to the event.
Specific duties expected of the officer should be spelled out and discussed with the Police & Security Services events representative prior to the event. Every event must have an on-site contact person to liaison with the officer. The requestor must specify uniform or plainclothes officers and any special concerns regarding the event.
