The Florida International University Police Department (FIUPD) is located in the PG5 Market Station at Modesto Maidique Campus and in the SO II Building at Biscayne Bay Campus. The department provides a full range of public services to the neighboring community 24 hours a day, seven days a week on both campuses. Law enforcement personnel are required to complete the minimum training as established by Florida State Statute for certification. The State of Florida certifies all police officers of the university prior to being hired. FIUPD patrols the Modesto Maidique and Biscayne Bay campuses on foot and in police marked and unmarked vehicles. The department is comprised of several sections, including:
The FIUPD adopts an excellent working relationship with other local law enforcement agencies. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), and other state and federal agencies also assist the department when necessary, ensuring that we maintain professional police services to the university community. Communication and coordination with all new law enforcement agencies is maintained on a 24 hour basis through the Florida Crime Information Center (FCIC) and the National Crime Information Center (NCIC).
The safety and security of the university community is our primary function; students and members of the faculty and staff are encouraged to be involved in campus crime prevention. In an ongoing effort to facilitate this process, our law enforcement personnel are provide crime prevention programs each semester on various topics. Please take some time to explore the various programs that are available to the university community.
