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.

See Something, Say Something

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.
