We had a great turnout tonight from Tampa Police Department at the District 3 community discussions. Chief Ward was there along with Major Rocky Ratcliff (pictured) along with several captains and other officers. For those of you who are Nightwatch fans, you'll also see a couple of familiar faces in the pic. Great Q&A between officers and community members. Hope to see members from South Seminole Heights community at the next meeting. We also heard from the ladies that head up Tampa's Anonymous Crimestopper hotline. Did you know that calls made to the hotline are bounced overseas and then taken here by an operator 24/7? Any information that is obtained is recorded and then sent to Quality Assurance to insure that all identifying information is scrubbed before it is turned over to TPD. So, if you want to report suspicious or criminal activity anonymously, you can either call 1-800-873-TIPS (8477) or you can go online to www.crimestopperstb.com ... See more

#TBT Pickford's Sundries located at 2606 West Hillsborough Ave in 1955. In 1949 Casimir Lesiak moved his family from Scranton, Pa. to Tampa to build Pickford's Sundries. He chose Pickford because he felt his family name was too difficult for his customers to pronounce and he was a big fan of silent film star, Mary Pickford. The Drug Store became one of Tampa's most well known for over fifty years and and was one of the last family owned drug stores of the era, encompassing the lives of many people who lived in West Tampa and Seminole Heights during the 1950's. Many Tampa Children spent their allowances buying comics, toys, sodas, ice cream sundaes, and moon pies at this neighborhood Drug Store.

Check this out about Pinellas. It rings true here too. Make sure you are locking your doors! "Of more than 500 cars stolen by kids in Pinellas County between January 2015 and June 2016, in cases in which the method of theft is known, a majority was left unlocked. The newspaper built a database containing every juvenile auto theft arrest in Pinellas County for an 18-month period — 742 arrests in all, connected to 529 auto theft cases — and conducted a first-of-its-kind analysis of the danger generated by the crime, as well as the thieves’ methods, motives and social connections. Reporters found that a stunning number of people leave their cars unlocked, often with spare keys in the cup holders, center consoles or under seats. This happened in at least 250 cases — three unlocked cars stolen every week." ... See more
