The Treasure Island Police Department was established in 1955 to provide professional law enforcement services to a rapidly growing community. From our earliest days in operation and by creating attainable goals, the men and women of the Treasure Island Police Department have been committed to making Treasure Island one of the safest communities in the state of Florida. To reach those goals, we identified our core values of trust, integrity, professionalism and dedication, and we developed an effective mission statement to guide our members, keeping us focused on what is important. In furtherance of our continued goals, our department adopted a community policing philosophy during the late 1980’s. By embodying the core principles of community policing, we have involved community stakeholders in creating solutions to the issues facing our community. Our success was not built solely by our own hands, but rather, is the result of working together with our businesses and residents.
Today, we continue our proud tradition of providing professional law enforcement services through a community policing approach. We adhere to our core values without exception, and our mission statement remains the fundamental driving force as we deliver effective and efficient services to a diverse community. By maintaining a modern and up-to-date operations manual and continued goals to meet Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation standards, the Treasure Island Police Department is set to continue its tradition of maintaining the quintessential beach lifestyle our residents and visitors have come to know.
