On-Demand Booking

Campus organizations may book the S.A.F.E. course at any time with UMPD. Interested parties must provide a number of attendees, date(s) and time(s) that they wish to conduct the course (with at least 2-weeks lead time), and have identified an appropriate space on campus in which we may hold the class. Otherwise, UMPD may make arrangements for space and charge the group accordingly. Groups have a minimum requirement of 5 people in order to book a course.
