Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office and Tampa Police Department


Operation Alliance II


August 29th 2009  5:00 pm – 4:30 am   


Hillsborough County and City of Tampa















On August 29, 2009 the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office and the Tampa Police Department will join forces in “Operation Alliance II”. This operation will consist of a concentrated initiative to help reduce crime in Hillsborough County and the City of Tampa.


HCSO and TPD recognize people in the community are concerned with serious crimes in their everyday lives; therefore both agencies will focus on disrupting criminal activities by providing a strong visible presence of law enforcement within selected high crime areas. Law enforcement personnel will saturate several neighborhoods gathering criminal intelligence, and conduct proactive law enforcement using a variety of methods and tactics.


Some of these methods will include targeting traffic violations, drug and prostitution activity and “quality of life” related offenses such as public intoxication. In addition, individuals currently wanted for serious crimes will be targeted for apprehension within the operational area.
