OUR POLICE FOUNDATION

Healthcare Research Phd Resume Day after day, Tampa Police officers do whatever it takes to serve and protect. And with great success. But there is much to be done. Much to prepare. Much to preempt. Much to conquer. And we need your help. We need you to serve. To protect. To rise. So we can empower Tampa to do the same.

MISSION

Rise Tampa will start its work where the city budget stops. It will ensure officers are receiving the latest training, safety equipment and using cutting edge technology to keep our citizens safe while providing growth opportunities to our most underprivileged children.

SUMMARY

When people need help, they can always rely on the Tampa Police Department to respond in full force. The budget provides the agency with all the basic tools needed to receive 911 calls and to respond swiftly to those in crisis. During the recent recession, Mayor Bob Buckhorn ensured budget cuts never reduced the number of officers patrolling our city streets. However, the agency was forced to cut back on training and purchasing the latest technology and safety equipment available in the crime fight. As a result, advanced training and specialized technology is often beyond our grasp.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Afterschool program helps a disadvantaged child earn a college scholarship

When officers crackdown on Tampa’s most crime challenged neighborhoods, children often see police taking one of their parents or an older sibling to jail. Even though this family member may be involved in dangerous criminal activity, their sudden absence can still be very disruptive to a family and even more detrimental to the family’s income.
