Officer Request Form
General Guidelines for Requesting Officers
- The normal ratio of officers for special events is one uniformed officer per 100-150 participants. The number of officers will depend upon the specific event. Student sponsored dances will require a minimum of two officers. The Department of Public Safety will make the determination of the number of officers needed based upon the history and experience with similar events.
- There is a $75.00 hourly charge for each officer for non-USF departments/agencies. USF Departments sponsoring outside organizations will also be assessed this hourly charge for Public Safety Officers. All requests may be subject to a 30% administrative processing fee.
- An officer will be available for the special event on request for a minimum of 4 hour per day.
- USF departments and organizations will not be charged an officer fee if request is made at least 20 business days prior to the event.
- Officers are required to report one-half hour prior to the event’s start time and must remain one half hour after the event ends, or until the participants have cleared the event area.
- Complete the section below and submit AT LEAST 20 BUSINESS DAYS PRIOR TO THE EVENT. A $100.00 late fee could be assessed if request is not submitted 10 business days prior to the event.
- You must notify Public Safety of the cancellation of the event at least 5 business days
