Certain events REQUIRE a meeting with Public Safety to discuss event specifics and obtain an approval signature. This meeting should take place shortly after you book your space in order for Public Safety to prepare for your event. Waiting until 2 weeks prior to your event may result in cancelation due to lack of staff availability. Please note: Some events may require the presence of an officer or cadet and charges may be incurred by the sponsoring student organization. The following events require the approval of Public Safety:
- Large Events (attendance of 250 or more)
- Overnight Events
- Event determined appropriate by the scheduling authority
Contact Lt. John Campbell, Public Safety, for approval signature. You must call 540-568-6910 to set up an appointment. If Lt. Campbell is not available, email PD_SpecialEvents@jmu.edu or contact Sgt Chad Skelton. Completed and signed paperwork is due to the appropriate scheduling authority TWO weeks before the event date.
If the discussion and approval from Public Safety has not taken place prior to the due date for paperwork, the event will be CANCELED.
