Tonight in Tampa, there will be a heightened patrol within all of the districts of Hillsborough County. At this time, there will be a large amount of police officers that will be combing the area and making sure that all citizens in the area are abiding by the laws.
Because there will be so many police officers, it will be easier for the authorities to make arrests. They will be on the lookout for DUI offenders all throughout the city of Tampa and will make arrests as necessary. This is because the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is devoted to a DUI campaign and they are trying to eliminate the amount of DUI offenders in the city.
If you have been arrested for an alcohol-related offense such as driving under the influence, or public drunkenness, an attorney at Thomas & Paulk can assist you. The heightened patrol in Hillsborough County will last from 10:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. During this time, the police will be watching for those who are out on the town and monitor those that are drinking. There will be no BAT or transport during this heightened patrol. If you have been arrested, then you will want to contact an attorney immediately and seek defense.
