The University of Tampa considers the safety of all University community members integral to its educational mission. The Department of Campus Safety works closely with the dean of students to ensure that guidelines, rules and procedures are properly communicated and executed. Safety officers also coordinate with the Facilities Management Department to provide a clean and safe environment.

Officers patrol campus 24 hours a day, every day of the year. They also assist with services such as publishing crime prevention information, providing pedestrian escorts, assisting with personal property engraving and vehicle registration.

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services licenses all officers, and most UT personnel have previous law enforcement or military experience. They are qualified to handle any type of safety and security situation. Prior to employment, all officers are subjected to extensive psychological screening and background investigations.

Campus Safety maintains a close working relationship with both the Tampa Police Department and the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office. Officers from both agencies are routinely seen on campus, providing additional backup and support to our officers. By law, officers from both agencies may enforce laws on campus, including traffic regulations. UT Campus Safety officers do not possess arrest powers.
