Welcome to the Gainesville, Florida Police Department

  • In reference to the October 19 event, GPD will continue to politely decline individual requests for interviews and will refer to the following statement:

    In an effort to continue the high level of safety and security that Gainesville has come to expect, the Gainesville Police Department has developed a comprehensive security plan for events surrounding October 19th.  For obvious reasons, and to maintain operational security, GPD will not be discussing the details of this plan.  We remind folks to report ANY suspicious activity.

    Also, as Thursday approaches, GPD's PIO will push information out as the day unfolds through social media channels.  Due to the expected number of inquiries, we will not be able to answer individual questions or interview requests.  Please monitor our social media channels for the most updated information.

  • The Gainesville Police Fund was created to advance the mission of the Department by funding police specific projects and initiatives beyond the scope of the normal operating budget.  Click here to donate!  Donations will be used for many different things, including basic necessities for residents, and helping with additional resources and equipment to help GPD provide the best possible services to Gainesville residents and visitors.
