The Department of Public Safety at St. Thomas University is responsible for providing physical security on campus. Wackenhut personnel patrol the campus in order to provide security to all campus personnel. The Department of Public Safety is also responsible for enforcing campus traffic and parking regulations, registering vehicles, enforcing all campus policies and procedures, and most importantly, providing immediate emergency assistance as required. All Public Safety Officers are radio equipped and centrally dispatched.

St. Thomas University’s commitment to improve and maintain the highest level of campus safety has resulted in a closer relationship between the Wackenhut Corporation and the Miami Dade Police Department.
