The University of Miami Police Department (UMPD) adheres to the philosophy of Community Policing. Community Policing is a direct expression of our mission statement. Our police officers are an integral part of the campus, a place where our students, visitors, faculty and staff feel safe.

UMPD is a professional law enforcement agency that actively works to maximize the quality of life on the Coral Gables campus through proactive community policing efforts and continuous crime prevention programs.

UMPD supports the mission of the University of Miami by promoting a safe and secure higher education environment through collaborative, innovative, proactive and professional law enforcement initiatives that follow a community policing model of law enforcement.

All University Police Officers are State of Florida Certified, sworn and empowered through the City of Coral Gables. UM Police Officers patrol the campus, respond to emergency and non-emergency calls for service, enforce laws (including traffic), conduct criminal investigations, and carry out other law enforcement related activities.

Although each of the other University campuses have their own security departments responsible for safety and security at their respective locations, UMPD continuously collaborates to support operations, enhance training, and maximize programming for the Miller School and Rosenstiel School campuses. All University of Miami Police and Security personnel work in partnership, striving to create an environment of unparalleled safety and customer service.

UMPD offers a variety of services and programs designed to assist the university community in maintaining its personal safety and the security of their property. Some of the most frequently utilized programs include the Blue Light Telephones, the Safety Escort Services, and the Bicycle Registration Program.
