Maintaining a safe, secure setting for all
The University Police Department (UPD) is responsible for law enforcement, security, disaster planning and emergency response at FGCU. We work with the entire university community to provide a safe and secure environment that enables everyone to achieve their academic goals and enjoy the FGCU experience.
In addition to promoting crime prevention, we ensure safety for both vehicle and pedestrian traffic and assist in coordinating special events. We provide reliable high-quality professional service at all times.
UPD is headquartered in the north end of the Campus Support Complex on the southwestern side of the campus loop, FGCU Boulevard South.
UPD includes 21 sworn law enforcement officers and 10 civilian personnel in three departments to serve and protect our campus.
Police ServicesUPD serves the campus with law enforcement patrol services including a 24-hour Dispatch Center, Bike Unit, Detective and Crime Prevention and Community Outreach Officer.
Parking ServicesParking Services oversees parking lots and garages, issuing of parking permits to faculty/staff, students and visitors on campus, and parking citations to vehicles found in violation.
Threat Assessment & Management Team
FGCU cultivates a secure community within a supportive and accessible living, learning and working environment. It is standard practice on university campuses to promote safety through a Threat Assessment & Management Team (TAMT) empowered to investigate, assess and manage risks of violence by any troubled community member.

As motorists, our commitment to follow traffic laws plays a significant role in enhancing road safety.
