Community Services

Welcome! You have arrived at the University of Florida Police Department’s Community Services Division’s website. As discussed throughout the UFPD website, the University of Florida Police Department recognizes the importance of establishing close ties with all members of the community we serve. In order to facilitate the establishment of these ties, the University of Florida Police Department established the Community Services Division.

A Police Captain, a Police Sergeant, three Police Officers, and one Program Assistant under the direction of a departmental Assistant Director staff the Community Services Division. The division is a specifically designed unit that is responsible for organizing, establishing, maintaining, and promoting coordinated crime prevention and community related programs. In the 2009 fiscal year alone, the officers of the Community Services Division conducted 366 educational programs at the request of the community. As discussed in further detail on our adjoining web sites, the division also has added a School Resource Officer assigned to P.K. Yonge Laboratory School. The presence of this officer every day on campus has improved the relations between the school, the students, and the parents. Additionally, one officer serves as the department’s liaison with various student groups including student athletes, fraternity/sorority members, and several other special interest groups on campus.

We hope that you have the time to view the information pertaining to our various programs and crime prevention/safety tips. We will continue to expand our sources of information as they become available, so please be sure to check back often.

One service offered by the Community Services Division staff is that of free fingerprinting to students, faculty, and staff of the University of Florida. We do not however provide fingerprinting cards and cannot send fingerprints electronically. Please bring a valid driver’s license, UFID, and the blank fingerprinting card to the Community Services Division Monday through Friday between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm.
