Student Ambassadors

Our University of Miami Police Department is committed to providing for the safety and security of the entire University community. Our Student Ambassador program is an integral part of these efforts.

Student Ambassadors are UM students employed by the Police Department to augment our Patrol Division. While they do not perform the same duties as police officers, they are an important element of our patrol division. They are readily identified by their shirts with the Student Ambassador logo.

Student Ambassadors work individually to patrol the University campus. They are responsible for crime prevention practices, events, patrolling the Coral Gables campus, reporting suspicious activity and hazardous conditions.

The Student Ambassadors are thoroughly trained for situations that could occur during their active patrol duties. This training includes instructions in communications, using the Automatic External Defibrillator, and CPR. At the end of the training, all Student Ambassadors must take and pass a competency test before going on patrol.

In order to become an Ambassador one must be 18 years of age, be of high moral character, and a full-time student with a minimum of 2.5 GPA. The selection process consists of interview(s) followed by a background check.

If you are interested in becoming an Ambassador, please contact Security Manager Barbara Jones at 305.284.6897 or Crime Prevention Manager Alexandra Martinez at 305.284.1105.
