About the Treasure Island Police Department

The Treasure Island Police Department was established in 1955.  Today, the Treasure Island Police Department consists of 20 sworn police officers and a variety of civilian support personnel.  According to the Treasure Island Police Department, there police officers, “typically perform more follow up on their own criminal cases than do officers in larger city or metro area agencies. This allows patrol officers to continually develop their investigative and report writing skills. It also means that TIPD officers are well prepared in court.”


In addition to regular patrol services, the Treasure Island Police Department maintains a Marine Patrol which “is a full time dedicated unit focused on marine enforcement, safety and education. The department utilizes a 24’ Boston Whaler Justice, equipped with twin 200 hp Yamaha engines as well as state of the art radar and chart plotter. During the peak boating season from May until September, and on holidays and weekends, additional officers may be assigned to increase protection and safety. Specially trained officers are assigned to bicycle patrol, which provides a greater degree of access, closeness and increased interaction between the officers and members of the community. The department utilizes several patrol bikes, including three fully equipped Mercedes Mountain Bikes.”
