Welcome to the FSU University Police Department, where your safety and security are our top priorities. Our dedicated team of professionals is committed to upholding the laws of the Commonwealth on our vibrant campus, ensuring a safe and welcoming environment for all.

Our officers, sworn Special State Police and Deputy Sheriffs, work tirelessly to patrol the campus 24/7, responding to calls and addressing any concerns that may arise. Each shift is staffed with a minimum of two officers and a dispatcher, providing round-the-clock support. With a focus on collaboration, we actively engage with the University community to coordinate programs and services that promote and enhance campus safety.

The heart of our department lies in its people. Our team comprises fourteen highly trained, sworn, and uniformed Police Officers, complemented by an Institutional Security Officer and three skilled civilian Dispatchers. From rape investigation to CPR, crime scene management to crisis intervention, our officers undergo comprehensive training to handle diverse situations effectively.

For added security, our Institutional Security Officers patrol buildings and grounds, while our surveillance system, equipped with cameras and card access systems, monitors residence hall entrances. Throughout the academic year, desk attendants further contribute to a secure living environment for our students.

At the Framingham State Police Department, we are not just enforcers of the law; we are partners in creating a secure and thriving campus community. Join us at FSU, where your safety is our priority, and together, let's make your university experience unforgettable.
