University Police Services has an excellent working relationship with all local law enforcement agencies. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement and other state and federal agencies are available to assist you upon request. Communication and coordination with all area law enforcement agencies are maintained on a 24-hour basis via computer networks such as the Florida Crime Information Center and the National Crime Information Center, as well as with the Pinellas County Criminal Justice Information System.

University Police Services maintains a daily crime log, which is accessible to the public at our police station. Annual crime statistics are published yearly on this web site. A listing of registered sexual predators enrolled or employed at the University is maintained by the Pinellas County Sheriff and the USFSP Police.

Any emergency situation involving a threat to life or property should be immediately reported to University Police Services. The caller should stay on the line until the dispatcher terminates the call. Do not hang up! The dispatcher will summon police, fire or medical assistance. Follow-up counseling services or other trauma assistance will be arranged for the victim as needed. Emergencies at off-campus affiliates utilized by students will be handled by the appropriate local police/ fire and 911 system.
