A message from the Public Safety Department

Public Safety would like to remind members of the Barry Community to stop and use the Pedestrian Button when crossing at the Flashing Light Pedestrian Cross Walk on North Miami Ave. Failure to do so could result in a citation from the Miami Shores Police Department.

September is National Preparedness Month. Have you taken steps to prepare for an emergency?

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), three elements of good preparation are:

  • Being Informed -- Learn about the potential emergencies that can happen where you live and know the appropriate ways to respond to them.
  • Making a Plan -- Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to plan what you would do in different situations. How would you get to a safe place? How would you contact one another and get back together?
  • Building a Kit -- Items to include in an emergency supply kit.
    Taking these steps could help you and your family in the event of an emergency. 

Our Annual Report and crime statistics are available on the Barry Public Safety web page, along with other important crime prevention tips.


Barry University reminds its students, faculty, staff and visitors that continued caution and vigilance are necessary components of your own personal safety and the safety of all in the Barry community. We encourage all to report crimes and/or suspicious behavior to Public Safety by calling 305-899-3333 or visiting www.barry.edu/publicsafety/silentwitness.htm, a confidential way of providing information via Barry's website.
