Campus Safety Alert

The University of Florida Police Department would like to make you aware of multiple catalytic converter thefts that were reported at multiple locations on campus. Two makes and models of vehicle were targeted: Honda Element and Mitsubishi Outlander.

UFPD has increased patrols of all parking areas on campus and are actively investigating these thefts. If you believe you have been a victim of a catalytic converter theft or if you have any information that may be helpful in these investigations, please contact UFPD at (352) 392-1111 or submit information through the Silent Witness link at https://police.ufl.edu/contact/silent-witness/ or through the GatorSafe app.

While it is difficult to prevent the theft of catalytic converters, there are steps you can take to protect your property. We recommend anti-theft devices such as alarm systems, theft prevention devices, or owner applied numbers.

We encourage if you see something, say something. And say something as soon as it is safe to do so.
