On Monday, Memory Mall showcased a helicopter, SWAT response vehicle, fire trucks, police vehicles, mounted deputies, and more in the Safe Knight Week carnival.

A series of interactive events intended to raise awareness about safety and well-being topics that the UCF community may encounter greet students during the week of March 6-10.


Students were given an opportunity to talk to Orange County Deputies about their Sheriff’s Office helicopter, Winter Park┬ápolice and their SWAT response vehicle, and mounted deputies about their role in the community. These officers and deputies allowed students inside the vehicles posted and offered pictures to students wearing a bulletproof vest, and more.

Wednesday will offer physical and mental well-being services, such as HIV testing at the Recreation and Wellness Center and an evening healthy cooking competition, according to UCF.

Thursday and Friday’s events will focus on alcohol and high-risk behaviors.
