David Hendry

On behalf of the University of South Florida St. Petersburg campus, I would like to welcome you to our beautiful waterfront home adjacent to downtown St. Petersburg.  The safety and security of the campus is provided by the University Police (UPD), which is a fully accredited state law enforcement agency.

UPD prides itself on strong campus relationships and community partnerships.  Our officers are a visible presence on campus and provide a wide range of police services above and beyond those of traditional law enforcement agencies.  You may contact UPD at 727-873-4444.

The UPD website serves to connect you to information and resources at any time of the day or night.  Please take a moment to review the resources on our website including Safety and Preparedness programs, the See Something Say Something program, and to register for AlertUSF emergency management notifications.

Thanks again for visiting the UPD website and welcome to USF St. Petersburg.  Always feel free to contact the University Police for any assistance.

David Hendry,
Chief of Police
