Campus Safety & Security is responsible for the enforcement of university policies, security on campus, and providing a variety of services to the university’s students, faculty and staff. The director of campus safety & security also serves as the leader of the campus emergency operations team, which conducts drills and exercises in emergency preparedness and response strategies. Some of the services provided by Campus Safety & Security include Operation ID, self defense and crime prevention presentations. Students are encouraged to take full advantage of the services and crime prevention programs offered by Campus Safety & Security, which is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Students who need help or have questions should call extension 7011 from a university phone or 305-892-7011 from a non-university phone. Incidents of an emergency nature should be reported to the North Miami Police at 911, followed by contacting Campus Safety & Security at the above number.

Campus Safety & Security officers are available to patrol the campus at all times and utilize an integrated electronic access control and surveillance system. Emergency telephones are strategically located on campus and directly connect callers to the Campus Safety & Security dispatcher on duty. Campus Safety & Security issues timely alerts to the campus community and, when necessary, has the ability to issue these timely alerts via an emergency notification mass-messaging system.

In compliance with the Higher Education Act, Johnson & Wales University publishes an Annual Security Report and Annual Fire Safety Report. The Annual Security Report discloses information about campus security policies and statistics concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, university-controlled property and public property immediately adjacent to campus. The Annual Fire Safety Report discloses information about the campus fire safety policies and procedures and fire statistics for each residence hall. A copy of the report may be obtained from Campus Safety & Security in person or online.

The university maintains a log of all fires that occur in on-campus housing and a daily log of all reported crimes.
