The safety escort service is provided by the LASER (Law Abiding Students Ever Ready) Team during fall and spring terms for University community members. This service provides transport assistance whether due to injury, disability, adverse weather (not including severe storms with lightning), or for general safety.
Upon request, a student will be assigned an escort to the requested on-campus destination. In addition, the escort service, when not en route to a destination, is on motorized patrol and will offer assistance to pedestrians who are walking alone at night on campus.
For a safe escort, please call on campus ext. 4515 or (813) 257-4515 during the team's hours of operation.
