The Florida A&M University Department of Campus Safety & Security Records Unit is responsible for compiling, maintaining and disseminating information from police department records regarding both incident and traffic crash reports. The Records Unit is also responsible for providing crime statistics to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) for the Uniformed Crime Report which in turn is used to provide an assessment of the level and types of crime which occurs on our campus.
As a state agency, the Florida A&M University Department of Campus Safety & Security is required to provide public records in accordance with Chapter 119 of the Florida Statutes (FSS 119). In order to effectively meet that requirement, anyone can receive a copy of a police report simply by emailling the Public Records Request form or coming into the police station and requesting it. Call the Records department at (850) 599-8522 to make sure that the police report is available. Please have your case number, first and last name when requesting a report. If you do not have a case number, you must know the date, time and location where the incident occurred.
In accordance with FSS 119, those requesting public information are expressly permitted by law to make requests in any manner they choose (verbal, written, anonymous, etc.). Citizens and media representatives can also make public police records requests for incident or traffic crash reports by coming to our department during normal business hours Monday through Friday 8:00am-5:00 pm.
If you have any further questions about the FAMU-DCSS Records Unit, please feel free to call 850-599-8522 Monday-Friday 9:00a.m.-5:00 p.m. (except university or national holidays):
Barbara Wood, Records Clerk
