Coordination with State and Local Emergency Service Providers
Florida Tech has a working agreement with the City of Melbourne that when emergency services are requested, or a determination is made that a need exists, the City of Melbourne will be the primary emergency service responder. This includes police, fire, and medical services. In the event additional services are needed, Brevard County and/or the State of Florida emergency services divisions will assist when requested by the City of Melbourne. Florida Tech endeavors to work with and support these local and state emergency providers by assisting when and where needed. This includes all investigations of criminal incidents occurring on or off campus when faculty, staff, or students may be involved.
Florida Tech Department of Security is an active member of the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA), as well as members of the National Association of Clery Compliance Officers and Professionals (NACCOP).
