Crime Prevention Unit

Tampa International Airport Police Department (TIAPD) actively participates in community events and activities to educate the public on a variety of safety, security and law enforcement topics.

The Crime Prevention and K9 units work hand and hand to conduct presentations throughout the Airport Community and the Tampa Bay area to share law enforcement and travel safety messages to children, families, seniors and anyone interested in a unique perspective on law enforcement.

Past presentations include speaking engagements at schools and civic organizations which covered topics such as Travel Safety, Stranger Danger, Bicycle Safety, Driving Safety, and Airport Security.

The Crime Prevention Unit provides tours of the police department and participates in events throughout the community including: Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, National Night Out Against Crime, The Great American Teach In, and Safety Day Events.

Airport Watch

We at Tampa International Airport are proud of our police department, but crime prevention and detection doesn’t end with our officers. It is important for all of us at the airport to become familiar with our surroundings and learn to recognize suspicious activity. Keeping our community safe is everyone’s business.
