As a part of the new Safe Schools initiative, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office has entered into agreements with Polk State College and Southeastern University to provide safety and security services. Both partnerships are a part of the Sheriff’s Office’s Safe Schools initiative that provides a system through which the security operations of contracted colleges and universities will be managed and coordinated to enhance the safety and security of students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors. 

The campuses have a sworn law enforcement Lieutenant permanently assigned to the campus to oversee security and safety operations. These law enforcement professionals are also responsible for ensuring Polk State College and Southeastern University remain compliant with changing federal guidelines regarding the Jeanne Clery Act and the Violence Against Women Act.
