Request An Officer For An Event

Division officers regularly provide support to other departments on campus by providing a presence at special events. Uniformed police, plain-clothed officers and parking services staff are present at most athletic events, Colonial Life Arena events and many other large events held on campus.

At your request, division personnel are available for hire to provide general security, crowd control, parking support and emergency pre-planning for various events on campus. In addition to USC police officers and non-sworn personnel, the division also contracts with University-approved security companies to staff some events.

To request an officer or other Division personnel for your event, or to learn more about rates, please contact Special Events Coordinator Marie Counts at 803.777.6444 or by email at
