Argo Safety Escort

You can recognize Argo Safety Escort golf carts by the UWFPD decals.

Safety escorts are designed to help keep our campus community safe. We encourage anyone who does not walk in a group to use our escort program. Safety escorts are available 24 hours a day and any day of the week. To request an escort, call 850.474.2415 and inform the dispatcher you would like to request an escort. The dispatcher will ask for your name, current location, and your destination on campus.

Safety escorts are provided by students who are employed by the police department as safety escorts. You can identify them by their UWFPD safety escort photo ID card and the green safety vest labeled “UWF Safety Patrol” on the front. When student workers are not available, a police officer will respond to your escort request. Escorts can be done by golf cart, patrol car, or by foot. The golf cart has UWFPD decals. The escort should present a business card when contact is made. If you have any questions regarding the identity of a safety escort, contact UWFPD dispatch at 850.474.2415.
