Tampa Night Out Dance Off
Last night TPD Squad 209 responded to assist an elderly resident who called for assistance to retrieve her beloved dog, who was in distress and trapped under her shed. Officers arrived and quickly determined the best way to help the trapped dog was to get down and dirty by digging a trench. They were able to successfully rescue "Queenie" and get her safely back into her owners loving arms. #tpdtotherescue #furryfriendsarefamily #randomworkout

The Caballero and TPD families extend our deepest gratitude to our community for the love and support you showed Will, his wife, and his children during his courageous battle.
