Public Safety

SCF Public SafetyWelcome to the State College of Florida Department of Public Safety home page. State College of Florida is vitally concerned about the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and visitors who participate in the many activities which SCF sponsors. A college campus is a great place to learn and grow, but a college campus, like any other community, has its share of crimes and injuries. Although the College does not experience a significant number of criminal acts, we encourage everyone to be aware of potential problems and ask that you join the effort to make SCF a safe and secure environment for everyone.

As required by the 1990 Jeanne Clery Campus Security and Awareness Act, campus crime statistics are available to anyone, upon request, through the Department of Public Safety/Security Services or by link on the SCF website. State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota continues a tradition of providing a safe and secure educational environment. The College maintains Safety & Security Services 24-hours per day and is available to respond to any security related request or emergency. College Security also provides many other services to our students, staff and visiting community.
