University Police Event Policy

We are responsible for providing police services on campus and for coordinating and determining police staffing at all events on campus.

This includes parties, dances, rallies, lectures, dignitary visits, sporting events, etc., including those events/functions sponsored by non-university organizations. Adequate security and crowd management are integral aspects of event planning.

All event sponsors and organizers (i.e., student organizations, departments, students, faculty and staff) share in the responsibility for the safety and well-being of audience members, participants, performers and workers. If no security issues or risks are present, there may be no need for an officer. However, that determination will be made by the University Police in consultation with the event sponsor/organizer.

How To Notify FSUPD About Your Event

This Security Event Review Form helps determine whether a police/security detail is needed for your event.

Requests for police department staffing for events should be made as far in advance as possible and must be submitted at least four weeks prior to the event.

For further assistance, Tuesday through Saturday 7:00 am– 3:00pm, please contact Lieutenant William Fisher. You may also contact the FSUPD on-duty shift supervisor at (978) 665-3111 at any time.

Detail Security Rates/cancellation Policy

In order to avoid billing, cancellation must be received by FSUPD twelve (12) hours prior to the start of the requested detail. Contact Lieutenant William Fisher. If calling after hours, you may contact the on-duty shift supervisor at (978) 665-3111.

If cancellation is not received, a four (4) hour minimum for each of the requested detail officers shall be billed. For further information regarding Detail Rates contact Lieutenant William Fisher. Rates effective July 1, 2014 - June 30, 2017
