The public safety functions of the USF St. Petersburg campus Police and Parking Services provide a secure environment for members of the university community and visitors to campus.

The USF St. Petersburg campus Police Department is 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 USF St. Petersburg campus PD, 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 their officers have also brought to USF St. Petersburg campus a variety of experience and specialized training from other law enforcement agencies.

Parking Services is an organization that supports the University’s vision, strategies and goals by providing exceptional customer services to our students, staff, faculty, and visitors. This office strives to be a model in the Parking and Transportation industry by using sound business practices, and implementing current technology and training to ensure parking is available for everyone at the USF St. Petersburg campus.
