Effective July 1, 2013 the Department of Safety, Security, and Emergency Preparedness (SSEP) underwent a restructuring. Part of this move included the uniting of all campus safety personnel under the Associate Vice President of Safety, Security and Emergency Preparedness. This move provided for a one college approach to the delivery of safety and security services and ensured standardization of these services.  The Department of Safety, Security and Emergency Preparedness has remained an integral part of Broward College's dedication to developing and maintaining a safe and secure environment in an effort to make your time at Broward College as safe and enjoyable as possible.
