Chief JD Withrow

The University of South Florida Police Department welcomes you to our web page. We established this web site to enable us to be more accessible to the community we serve and to others who may be interested in learning more about the agency. I encourage you to take the time to explore all areas of the site and to contact us with any questions or comments you may have.

The University Police Department is a full service law enforcement agency whose mission is to provide a safe environment for and in partnership with the community. This is accomplished by the combined efforts of the police department, staff, faculty, students, and visitors of the University.

The University Police are fully committed to keeping the community informed of incidents that occur on campus. We accomplish this through the daily release of information through our community alerts, community notices, media releases, activity reports and a list serve (Subscribe to the USF PD listserv).
