In order for these individuals to promptly report criminal actions or other emergencies, a security office is maintained at each of its sites. The College’s security officers are unarmed and do not have police powers, but they work closely with local law enforcement agencies on follow up actions or investigations related to criminal activities on campus.

- use, manufacture or possession of illegal drugs or narcotics on campus or at College functions

The College must comply with the provisions of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, and other applicable laws pertaining to College safety and security practices. The College’s Annual Security Report shall be posted on the College’s website by October 1, 2012. The College’s crime reporting procedure can be found in APM 06-0909, Incident Reporting and Clery Compliance. To obtain a list of sexual offenders, visit to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement or call (888) FL-PREDATOR.
Sexual assault is a serious crime which has a major impact on the campus community as well as on those who are victimized. The College will not tolerate sexual assault in any form, including date and acquaintance sexual assault. Should probable cause be determined that campus regulations prohibiting sexual assault have been violated, disciplinary action will be pursued through the code of student conduct or other appropriate internal processes. Discipline may result in suspension or dismissal from the College.
Any student or employee reporting a sexual assault will be treated with respect and sensitivity. Contacts and conversations which transpire pursuant to this procedure will be held in confidence. Students who believe they have been sexually assaulted and wish further information or assistance may contact the Campus Dean of Student Success for assistance. All reported cases will be referred to the appropriate campus security office. The security officer will complete a Security Incident Report and forward it to the College Equity Officer, and in the case of a student complainant, notify the Dean of Student Success.
An Annual Crime Statistics report is maintained for the number of occurrences for various crimes that have occurred on Florida State College at Jacksonville facilities for the last three years. The Annual Crime Statistics report can be found on the College’s website. Campus crime statistics and a Daily Crime Log listing certain reported crimes are available at each security office. Students can view the daily crime log for the most recent 60 days upon request at the Campus Security Office during business hours.
College APM 06-0910, Emergency Evacuation, establishes procedures and responsibilities for immediate communication and prompt evacuation or lockdown of College facilities in emergencies, if necessary to ensure the safety and well-being of life and the protection of property.
Emergency Notification Text Alert Messages
Florida State College at Jacksonville has an Emergency Notification System that enables the College to send urgent information and notifications to your cell phone and e-mail. Once you sign up for the service, the College can send an e-mail or text your cell phone with timely information about emergencies on campus. The service is available to all current students. While the service is entirely optional, we encourage everyone to sign up.
Depending on your personal cell phone plan, there may be a nominal fee from your carrier to receive text messages, but there is no charge from the College for using this service.
The Emergency Notification System enables College officials to send alerts directly to the registered subscribers’ e-mail accounts and mobile phones via text messages. This system gives the College the capability to push time-critical emergency information to employees and students on and off campus. Except for an occasional test message, the Emergency Notification System is intended only to be used for this emergency purpose.
To receive emergency notifications, log in to your Connections portal, click on the Emergency Notification System link in the Quick Links section, and follow the instructions. If you want to sign up for text messages you need to have your cell phone with you to receive a test message during the registration process. Once registered, you can update your account as necessary.
