About the Tallahassee Police Department
The Tallahassee Police Department employs nearly 500 police officers.  The uniformed patrol contingent is deployed in three geographic districts.  Investigations are conducted along geographic lines as well as by special units.  Among the specialized units of the Tallahassee Police Department is the Gang Response Unit.


According to the Tallahassee Police Department, A major goal of the Tallahassee Police Department is to combat criminal street gangs by devoting necessary resources towards validating, cataloging, classifying, initiating contact with, maintaining contact with, and arresting gang members. A Gang Response Unit (GRU) was created to meet this need and is one of the Department's newest specialized units. Members of the unit must be fully flexible in their schedules as the different needs and events in the community may require.”


According to their Chief of Police, the Tallahassee Police Department “has a distinguished 164 year history of fighting crime and being a leader in innovative police services. Today, TPD leads the way in many areas. We are recognized nationally as being the third longest accredited law enforcement agency in the country and for our programs developed to provide public safety services equally to all and to protect all citizens’ civil rights. Whether its routine patrol services, forensic science services, traffic safety enforcement, or implementing new technologies, the men and women who work for you at the Tallahassee Police Department have one purpose; making Tallahassee a safe place to live, work, and play!”
