Message from the Chief

Welcome from Chief Linda J. Stump, Assistant Vice-President of Public and Environmental Safety

Thank you for taking time to visit the University of Florida Police Department (UFPD) website. I am extremely proud to be a part of such a progressive campus law enforcement agency, and would like to tell you a little more about our department.

The UFPD is a State and Nationally Accredited law enforcement agency established to provide the highest degree of safety and security possible for the University of Florida community. We currently employ 90 certified law enforcement officers that provide twenty-four hour per day patrol and protection of campus and local assets, enforcing all laws and ordinances. We are committed to the prevention of crime and the protection of life and property.

Like many municipal, county, and state law enforcement agencies we have a Criminal Investigations Division dedicated to investigating crimes occurring on our campus, a Bicycle Patrol Team, Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT), 2 K-9 Teams (Sergeant Davis & Gator and Officer Sexton & Rocky), Motor Cycle Unit, Office of Victim Advocacy, and specialized units responsible for duties unique to the campus environment.

Every member of the UF community should also be familiar with, and take advantage of, the UFPD Community Services Division. The CSD is one of the most important divisions of our department. CSD Officers are committed to providing personal and property safety information and programs designed to help make your educational, living, and working experience at UF as enjoyable and crime-free as possible. You can contact the Community Services Division at (352) 392-1409.

Again, thank you for taking time to browse our website. For answers to any questions you may have regarding the UFPD, please email me at updinfo@admin.ufl.edu.
