When you are going to host something as big as The Republican National Convention, who do you call for advice?
This year's host city, Cleveland, turned to Tampa for advice on just what police needed to keep order with the estimated 50,000 people visiting. The number one answer from Tampa police was bikes.
Tampa Police got $50 million in grants to improve their security for the RNC in 2012. With that money they purchased equipment such as security cameras, patrol bikes, new uniforms and protective gear.
