Government Security News selected the Tampa Police Department for its annual Most Notable Municipal Initiative Award. GSN announced the winner last night at its 4th Annual Homeland Security awards event. Hundreds of government officials and industry executives attended the event at the Washington Convention Center.

"The judges were impressed with the Tampa Police Department's thoughtful and forward looking approach to managing the potential disruption from protesters at the GOP convention. The panel felt Tampa created a model that should set the standard nationally for policing large scale events. The department's extensive training and preparation was the key to preventing protest activities from getting out of control." Jacob Goodwin GSN Editor-In-Chief
