Campus Police

Committed to a Safe and Secure Environment

Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW) provides a healthy, safe, and secure environment through comprehensive and effective health, safety, and security programs that prioritize safety of students, faculty, staff, visitors and other members of the campus community. FSW maintains its own Campus Police Department (FSWPD) and provides protection for Florida SouthWestern State College’s Lee, Collier and Charlotte Campuses; and Hendry/Glades Curtis Center.

FSWPD maintains a staff of sworn uniformed police officers and non-sworn community service technicians which promotes more personal interaction with the college community. FSWPD is led by a Chief of Police who is a tenured law enforcement executive with 30 years of law enforcement experience and a Doctorate Degree in Human Services with a specialization in Criminal Justice. Leadership also includes a Captain of Operations and a Lieutenant position. The lieutenant position is responsible for providing supervision for FSWPD service College-wide to ensure a safe and secure environment for students, staff and visitors. Duties include overseeing the day-to-day operations and activities of the sergeants, police officers and support staff and acting in place of the Captain of Operations in his/her absence. In addition, FSW’s three first line supervisors (sergeants) oversee 24-hour coverage separated into three shifts of sworn uniformed police officers and non-sworn community service technicians on all campuses/center. FSWPD is comprised of 20 sworn and 17 non-sworn personnel.

FSWPD is committed to providing a safe, secure, and orderly environment in which learning, working, and administrative operations of the College have the opportunity to excel. The safety of our campuses is a cooperative effort of students, faculty, staff and visitors. Therefore, FSWPD mission is the commitment to the prevention of crime and the protection of life and property; the preservation of peace, order, and safety; the enforcement of laws; and the safeguarding of constitutional guarantees. FSWPD exists to serve all people with respect, fairness, and compassion with community service as the foundation. FSWPD members hold themselves to the highest standards of performance and ethics. To fulfill this mission, FSWPD is dedicated to providing a quality work environment and the development of its executives, supervisors, police officers, community service technicians, and staff through effective training and leadership.
