On-Campus Event Security
Many events, both large and small, occur on the AUM campus. Departments on campus coordinate with the AUM Police Department for safety and traffic control during events. Scheduling event security will in no way guarantee space availability or represents approval for the event. All inquiries into space and event approval should be made with the Conference and Campus Services Department.
The following guidelines are offered when scheduling the AUMPD’s presence at and event:
Submit requests for service no less than two weeks prior to your event date to allow for sufficient planning. If your request is made with less than two weeks notice, there will be no guarantee that an officer(s) will be available for your event. The request form can be picked up from the AUM Police Department service desk.
A minimum charge of four hours per requested officer(s) will be assessed for each event. All events lasting over three hours will be billed for the actual hours worked by the officer(s).
A minimum of 24 hours notice is required for cancellation of the request for police services. If you do not cancel within 24 hours before the scheduled time of the event, then your department or group may be billed for a minimum charge of $25.
You may request a specific number of officers needed for your event, but the AUM Police Department will be responsible for assessing the proper number of officers needed based on factors such as crowd size, type of event, location, etc.
