Campus Safety Message

The University of Florida Police Department would like to make you aware of multiple catalytic converter thefts in the Gainesville area. These thefts have occurred over the last few days and have been reported to the Gainesville Police Department and the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office. At this time there has not been any reports of catalytic converter thefts on campus.

UFPD has increased patrols of all parking areas on campus. 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.
