The St. Petersburg Police Department is looking for a team of young people willing to talk to police to help identify issues, find real solutions, and build trust between officers and people in their age group. This group will meet monthly to share experiences and ideas directly with Chief Holloway and his staff.

About the Department

St. Petersburg is the fifth largest city in Florida with a population of nearly 250,000. Our beautiful and modern city is surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay, providing residents and visitors with an outstanding year-round climate for many educational, cultural and leisure activities.

The St. Petersburg Police Department is one of over 1,000 law enforcement agencies in the United States accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).   We are identified as a Meritorious agency, as we have been accredited for 30 years.

In 2015, our agency participated in the voluntary Gold Standard Assessment.  We were the first agency in West Central Florida to undergo such an assessment. The Gold Standard Assessment provides for a more in-depth review of our agency’s practices as it goes beyond simple compliance.   In July our efforts were rewarded when CALEA conferred upon us the award of Advance Accreditation and Accreditation with Excellence.

Our agency is also one of 153 Florida law enforcement agencies accredited by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA).  In October of 2015 we were reaccredited by CFA.

These achievements reflect our Department’s commitment to excellence and our determination to adhere to the highest standards of policing.

Our Department is dedicated to a Community Policing philosophy, predicated on a high level of trust and partnership with the community, to mutually identify and resolve quality-of-life issues in our city. This policing philosophy incorporates the Department’s three tenets of Loyalty, Integrity, and Honor in our interactions with all citizens.

The St. Petersburg Police Department has an authorized strength of 562 sworn officers and 212 civilian support staff, and each of our employees is eager to serve you.

I hope you find our web site informative and helpful.

Thank you for visiting with us.
