Tampa's GOP convention a security challenge
from Tampa Bay Online
Presidential conventions typically have 3,500 to 4,200 people helping with public safety. Every day. Combined, the Tampa Police Department and Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office in Florida have about 2,100 sworn officers. If they all worked a convention, nobody would be left to police the remainder of the county.
