May 29, 2024 – Santa Fe College is dedicated to ensuring your safety and preparedness, whether you’re on the Northwest Campus or visiting one of our centers. We are proud to be one of the few colleges in Florida with a year-round, 24/7 police department.

To increase personal security, the SFPD encourages everyone to download the Safe Santa Fe app. Sergeant Mark Barley of the SFPD emphasizes the app’s significance, highlighting its wealth of college-related information.

“Need to make an emergency call?” Sergeant Barley said. “There’s a giant red button in the app for that. Need RTS bus route information or weather info for our campuses?  There’s a button for that too! You can get in touch with all the SF campuses via the app as well as counseling and victim service information. If you need it at SF, the app likely has it for you.”

The Safe Santa Fe app offers various features to meet your needs:

  • Request a safety escort from the SFPD.
  • Initiate a “friend walk” to share your location with a designated person.
  • Register your bicycle with the SFPD.
  • Access information on other SFPD services.
