Officer Request Form

General Guidelines for Requesting Officers

  1. 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.
  2. 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.  
  3. An officer will be available for the special event on request for a minimum of 4 hour per day.
  4. USF departments and organizations will not be charged an officer fee if request is made at least 20 business days prior to the event.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. You must notify Public Safety of the cancellation of the event at least 5 business days
