Student Community Oriented Police Effort

The Mission of the University of Florida Police Department (UFPD) is to provide protection and service to the University community. The UFPD is committed to the prevention of crime and the protection of life and property; the preservation of peace, order, and safety; the enforcement of laws and ordinances; and the safeguarding of constitutional guarantees.

With community service as the foundation, the UFPD is driven by goals to enhance the quality of life, investigating problems as well as incidents, seeking solutions and fostering a sense of security through programs reflecting the needs and desires of the community. The UFPD nurtures public trust by holding itself to the highest standards of performance and ethics.


The goals of the S.C.O.P.E. program are:

  • To create a crime prevention partnership between the University of Florida Department of Housing and Residence Education, resident students, and the UFPD.
  • Increase the visibility of the UFPD members throughout the various housing locations.
  • To inform the Housing Personnel and Resident Students of variables influencing the level of crime on campus and recommend crime prevention methods to lower the level of crime in an area.
  • To enhance the level of communication between the Housing Personnel, Resident Students, and the UFPD. Thereby increasing the level of trust and understanding of one another.
