Upcoming Broadcasts

Join us on Monday, April 27, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. for a very special interview with the retiring Chief of the Tampa Police Department. Jane Castor's decisive leadership is evident in all aspects of her 31 year career. She was elected the first female president of a police academy class and 26 years later, she became the first woman to lead the Tampa Police Department. Chief Castor has redefined community policing in her hometown and driven down the crime rate with her innovative approach to fighting crime. Over the course of her career, Chief Jane Castor built a reputation for working side by side with residents, community leaders, business owners and neighboring law enforcement agencies to reduce crime and improve the quality of life in Tampa. Those community partnerships are the foundation of TPD's dynamic crime reduction strategy, ?Focus on Four.? Since its induction in 2003, the plan has reduced violent and property crime by 70%. Jane's strong leadership style is balanced with her efforts to help Tampa's most disadvantaged children.She recently opened the doors of a multi-million dollar gymnasium for the Police Athletic League. The new facility is now serving more than 300 at-risk children. The department also opened a brand new safe haven for children called the RICH House. It's the second of its kind offering a safe environment for children to thrive and for parents to connect with social services. Chief Castor's commitment to at-risk kids is exemplified in her new Young Adult Police Academy. It targets kids on the verge of becoming involved in crime. Join us as we say farewell to Chief Jane Castor and commend her for serving the City of Tampa and it's diverse communities with distinction.
