Campus Safety

It is the mission of the Francis Marion University Police Department to create a safer university by protecting the lives of the students, faculty, staff and visitors to our campus and the surrounding community.  We accomplish this by reducing and preventing crime, building trust and maximizing the positive contacts we have with the community we serve.  Policies and procedures are in place to ensure precautionary measures exist to protect everyone on campus. The Campus Police Department provides around-the-clock police protection. Campus police officers are state law enforcement officers with full arrest authority and state-wide jurisdiction.  The University operates a campus-wide emergency siren system in conjunction with its SwampFox Alerts system.  There are also emergency telephones and callboxes strategically located throughout the campus to aid in personal assistance and crime prevention.
