Opening Locked Doors

Officers can open or unlock any building and classroom for Florida Poly employees.

Vehicle Assistance

If a vehicle will not start, the battery may be dead. Officers are happy to try to jumpstart any vehicle. If the vehicle still will not start, officers can provide a ride to the University Police Department where the owner of the vehicle may use the courtesy telephone to call for help.

Operation Identification

Operation Identification is a nationally recognized property identification program that was established to help recover stolen valuables and property. This free service engraves valuables with a unique number to make recovery and identification easier if items are stolen. Engraving also discourages theft.
