Nova Southeastern University Student Handbook 59 Public Safety The NSU Public Safety Department provides protective caregiving services on campus 24 hours a day. The NSU Public Safety Department uses community-focused crime prevention, including patrolling officers, to help prevent crimes and threats on the Fort Lauderdale/Davie Campus, East Campus, North Miami Beach Campus, Oceanographic Campus, and at the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale. The Public Safety Department also utilizes contract security officers to assist with traffic direction and special events on the Fort Lauderdale/Davie Campus and to provide on-site security services at NSU’s other campuses, as well as to augment security services at the Oceanographic Campus and the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale. NSU Public Safety and contract security officers only patrol and have jurisdiction to report and enforce university policies and parking and traffic enforcement on university property. Public Safety officers and contract security personnel are not police, are not empowered as such, and do not have the authority to make arrests. NSU Alert: Stay informed of all campus emergencies. • Program the NSU Emergency Hotline number, 800-256-5065, into your cell phone to stay informed and updated during actual or potential crisis/emergency situations. Call 9-1-1 for any emergency while on campus, then call Public Safety at (954) 262-8999. • Sign up for NSU’s Emergency Notification System. This is done by updating your emergency contact information at nova.edu/emergency. Program the NSU Emergency Hotline number, 800-256-5065, and SMS@blackboard.com as contacts into your cell phone so you will recognize NSU ALERT messages sent to your phone from the NSU Emergency Notification System. The Campus Safety Handbook has additional crime prevention and safety information. Shark Dining Services An integral feature to campus life undoubtedly lies within dining services.
