Employee Testimonials

“As a Police Officer at the University Of Florida Police Department, I am able to meet and talk with people from all over the world. While currently assigned to the Patrol Division, I am able to patrol campus in a vehicle and bike. While doing bike patrol, it easy for students, staff and visitors to approach me for assistance or just to talk.” — Investigator Susan Sanders


“Since I was young, my goal was to have a career in law enforcement, mainly because I was born in a country where the law enforcement system was flawed, with limited funds for training and equipment. Not only did UFPD help me reach that goal, but also I found my second family here. There is no better feeling than knowing you have solidarity, especially in this line of work.” — Detective Nikita McCarthy


“I wanted to be a part of helping the next generation of students have the same great college experience I had. Being at a university we put an emphasis on education, for both the citizens we encounter as well as our officers. We take the time to educate those we encounter. As a young officer in my law enforcement career this is a great place to learn and hone skills.” — Officer Kenneth Bain II
