Campus Safety Alert

As the semester comes to a close, the University of Florida Police Department (UFPD) and the Division of Student Life would like to make you aware of several recent reports made to law enforcement and university offices. Individuals have reported that while patronizing local bars, they may have unknowingly ingested altered substances (i.e., roofies or other controlled drugs or narcotic substances). These reports are being investigated by the Gainesville Police Department (GPD).

If you have any information that may be helpful in these investigations, please contact GPD at 352-538-0813 or use the UFPD Silent Witness link at:

We firmly believe that crime is never the fault of the victim. These general safety tips are provided to assist members of the UF community:
• If possible, watch how your drink is made. Cover your drink and never leave it unattended.
• If you don’t feel comfortable or safe, take steps to remove yourself from the situation.
• If you suspect you may have ingested an altered substance, call 9-1-1 and go to the hospital immediately to ask for an exam.
• Reporting to law enforcement is encouraged by calling 9-1-1 or through the GatorSafe app “Report a Tip/Forms” button.
