The University of Florida Police Department (UFPD) is charged with planning and operational management of many special events on campus. UFPD works with the University Athletic Association (UAA) and many other departments to provide security for a diverse selection of events that occur at the University of Florida.

The department develops a unique written plan for handling each individual special event. The plan contains the number of staff needed, the responsibilities of those involved, crowd and traffic control, logistical and safety concerns, and the anticipated criminal activities that are associated with particular events. The written plan also establishes coordination with other law enforcement and support agencies should their assistance be required. A designated chain of command for every operation is established in advance and an individual is assigned to complete an after-action-report detailing circumstances arising from the event.

One of the largest special events the department commands are the University of Florida home Football games. A large amount of planning and resources are utilized during these events. While there is a tremendous amount of time spent coordinating these games, each aspect has been carefully rehearsed in the event a problem should arise.
