Stick With It

Officials met with a complainant at Bldg. 8 who wanted to report the unauthorized removal of designated “Safe Place” stickers from the premises.

According to the complainant, an unknown person removed the two rainbow  “Safe Place” stickers from the office door rooms of 2601 and 2625, the main English Department office and the office assigned to a faculty member.

The “Safe Place” sticker of adjacent office 2543 was reportedly left untouched.

The police report states the stickers were removed sometime between 5:00 p.m on May 22 and 10:00 a.m. on May 23.

The information report has been closed.


Stolen Cell Phone

UNFPD met with a UNF staff member on May 23 in response to a report of a stolen cell phone.

The staff member told officials she believed an unknown person had entered her unlocked office in Bldg. 50 between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on May 22 and stole her cell phone.

She reportedly returned to her office sometime during the day to find the cell phone, which had been on her desk, missing. The staff member stated that many people have access to her office throughout the day, including students and fellow faculty members.

According to the police report, further investigation revealed her phone was located at the Norwood Flea Market at approximately 1:00 p.m. on May 23 and she promptly contacted the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

The staff member was reportedly advised to contact UNFPD regarding the stolen phone, at which point JSO would dispatch an officer to the flea market to assist her.

The police report states UNFPD told the staff member to contact them upon her return to the flea market for a follow-up investigation.

The case has been suspended due to an inability to identify suspects.
