The District Three Patrol Division serves
East Tampa, the Ybor City area and Port of Tampa with uniformed officer patrols,
squads and property
crimes detectives. Some of the points of
interest in District Three are; the Ybor City Entertainment District,
Channelside District, Downtown
Tampa, and the expansive Port of Tampa. They also work with the East Tampa
Community Revitalization Partnership. The uniformed
officers are deployed on a four days on, four days off work cycle (see shift
cycle calendar at left) with twelve squads averaging twelve officers per squad. The uniformed officers are the highly
visible components of the department and are the officers who typically respond
to calls for service in Tampa.
A squad of
plainclothes detectives, the District
Squad is assigned to
District Three for latent investigation of crimes against property, robbery,
auto theft, and economic crimes occurring in the area encompassed by the
district. Part of the squad is also charged with
conducting latent investigations on different types of assaults ranging from
minor to serious.
Rapid Offender Control
Officers, known as ROC, focus on high crime areas
called Offender Control Zones. They are armed with intelligence about
repeat offenders and crime patterns in their zones so they can more rapidly
identify suspects, solve crimes and prevent additional crimes from occurring.
These officers immediately begin the follow up investigation in concert with
Patrol before a detective is assigned to a case. One of the ROC Officers
is working in each Offender Control Zone around the clock. The crime
problems of each hot zone determine if ROC Officers focus on street level
narcotics, burglaries, prostitution, robberies or other crimes. A tactical
lieutenant oversees the day to day crime patterns and deployment of ROC
Officers. They coordinate between Patrol and District Detective Squads to
ensure all entities are sharing intelligence and working together to address
crime patterns. This supervisor also serves as a key point of contact for
citizens, which has enhanced working relationships with the community.
A Crime Prevention Unit is assigned to each district which includes of a
sworn police officer and a civilian employee. The team works together in
conjunction with community and business leaders in order to improve the quality
of life of citizens within their districts. They work daily with citizens
within their respective districts in order to solve various quality of life
problems such as; overgrown properties, loud music complaints, elderly affairs
issues, etc. The team also strives to inform and educate citizens of prevention
tactics designed to prevent property crimes such as; home burglaries, auto
theft, and auto burglaries. The team also encourages citizens to become
involved in a
Program, this is a program created to enlist the time and talents of
volunteers for the purpose of crime prevention. Informed and alert citizens who
look out for one another are more likely to prevent crimes in their
neighborhoods by reporting suspicious behavior to the Police.
School Resource Officers
In 1975, the Tampa Police Department and the Hillsborough County School Board
established the School Resource Officer Program. This program has the
responsibility of combating crime on a pre-delinquent basis as well as helping
our young community understand the functions of law enforcement and the
importance of safety. We also increase safety, security, and prevent
violence within schools.
