FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

FORT LAUDERDALE/DAVIE, Fla. – For many years, Nova Southeastern University (NSU) has had an excellent working relationship with The Town of Davie and the Davie Police Department. Davie police officers have been assigned to NSU’s campus for years and they work closely with the university’s Public Safety Department, playing an active role in all safety and security plans of the university.

Now that partnership is being enhanced with the addition of a new officer at NSU’s University School and additional office space being provided to police personnel.

“The safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors on our campus is of utmost concern,” said NSU President Dr. George L Hanbury.  “In talking with Town and Police leaders in Davie, they have agreed to increase their presence on our campus and to help, we’re providing them with additional office space.”

Campus safety and security is a collaborative effort, and having this additional office space made available to Davie Police personnel on NSU’s campus increases the interagency cooperation and efficiency. This enhancement results in a total of seven Davie police officers providing 24/7 Davie coverage to NSU’s campus (four to our main campus, one to NSU University School and two on the overnight shift based at the residential halls.) They join the nearly 130 NSU PSD staff (including 82 uniformed personnel).

“This is a win-win for NSU, Davie Police and the community,” said Major Dale Engle from the Davie Police Department. “No tax dollars were spent to create the satellite office for us, and the increased police presence will benefit the NSU community as well.”
