Public Safety Services

It is the policy of the CF Board of Trustees to protect the members of the total College community and to protect the property of CF. Under the general direction of the Senior Vice President, the CF Public Safety department shall ensure that reasonable protection is provided by using methods that fit within and contribute to the educational philosophy and purpose of this institution.

Members of the CF Public Safety Department and the contract security service are not police officers and are not empowered to make an arrest or investigate a crime. All employed Public Safety officers must possess a valid State of Florida Class D Security Officer License and are authorized to use reasonable force to detain a suspect pending arrival of law enforcement authorities. Public Safety officers have received training specific to security, parking and first aid.

All campus crime must be reported to the Ocala Police Department at 369-7000, or dial 911 for an emergency. The Public Safety Department should also be notified as soon as possible of any incident occurring on campus.Public Safety Callbox
