Patrol & Escort Services

 

         
          No matter where you are on campus, an officer can escort you safely to your car or residence hall, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
           
           
           
           

Our 15 campus safety officers patrol the PBA campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week, via marked vehicle, bicycle and on foot. All of our campus safety officers are in immediate contact with a dispatcher or patrol supervisor via two-way radio, and have the ability via radio-phone to contact emergency services. 
Each campus safety officer is certified by the State of Florida, Department of State, and receives rigorous in-service training. Campus safety officers respond to all incidents on campus, and have been trained to handle all incidents in a prompt and efficient manner. 
 

Twenty-two emergency telephone call boxes are located throughout campus, including main entrances to residence halls. These call boxes may be used for on-campus calls and emergency calls to 911. The red Emergency Assistance button will contact 9-911, West Palm Beach Police, and is for extreme emergencies only.

Contact Us: If you have questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to contact us at (561) 803-2500. Our office is located at the northeast corner of Borbe Hall.
