University Police Services (UPS)
USF St. Petersburg (USFSP) Police Services is a professional state law enforcement agency serving and protecting the university community.
UPS officers patrol the campus and surrounding areas 24 hours a day, 7 days a week using cars, special purpose vehicles, bicycles, and foot patrol.
We are dedicated to providing a safe environment for and in partnership with the community, while remaining committed to assisting with personal and professional development of department members.
Our officers are professional state law enforcement officers, drawing authority from State Statute 1012.97. They are here to serve the campus community as well as to protect it. All officers are certified by the state of Florida after completing training from the State Regional Police Training Academy. As a requirement for employment at USFSPPD, officers must meet the highest standards of their profession. Officers must meet or exceed stringent educational, training, background, and physical requirements, as well as pass a process of personal interviews, oral boards, a writing exercise, and psychological testing. Many of our officers have also brought to USFSP a variety of experience and specialized training from other law enforcement agencies.
