    Republican National Convention News:

    The RNC will bring in a large number of protesters to the Tampa Bay area. Many of these protesters will be looking for a place to stay and will turn to unlawful entry to vacant homes or businesses, land properties and public parks.

    HCSO is asking for the public to be vigilant for any signs of squatters who may be trespassing.

    Signs of such activity may include the following;
    • Numerous people suddenly moving into a vacant residence/business
    • Tents erected within backyards or uncommon areas
    • Anarchist graffiti on boarded up buildings or public places
    • Making flags to represent their cause
    Anyone who observes this type of suspicious activity is asked to contact the
