Tampa Police officers will be cruising through the West Tampa area on a new patrol bike thanks to the Old West Tampa Neighborhood Association/Crime Watch. The group recently presented the bike at their Neighborhood Watch meeting, along with two new bike helmets for the officers. The association’s president, Mike Vanetta, is already looking for more ways that his organization can partner with police to continue making their neighborhood a safe place.
