The University of South Florida Police Department (USFPD) is organized into components and divisions, each managed by a member of the Command Staff. The Command Staff is comprised of sworn members of the rank of Lieutenant or above who report through an established chain-of-command to the Chief of Police (Director of Public Safety).

The Administrative Division includes the Chief, administrative support staff, and the Professional Standards Manager (Accreditation).

The Operations component is under the direction of Operations Commander (Captain) who manages both the Patrol Division (uniform) and the Criminal Investigations Division (plain clothes). The Patrol Division includes the following: Uniform Patrol section, Bicycle Squad, Marine Unit, and the Health Science Center police detachment. The Patrol and Investigations divisions are responsible for criminal investigation of all misdemeanors, felonies, traffic law enforcement, and traffic crash investigations on University property.

The Support Services component is under the direction of the Administrative Captain. One Lieutenant manages the Records, Communications, and Public Information sections. Another Lieutenant manages the Crime Prevention, Training, and Special Events sections.

These divisions are staffed by dedicated and professional members who work together to provide the best possible law enforcement service to the community. We invite you to take a few moments to visit each of the areas listed in the Divisions menu.
