Topic - Tallahassee Police Department

The Tallahassee Police Department (TPD), provides public safety services for the city of Tallahassee, Florida. The Department operates under a district system, which separates the city into three distinct districts, in order to deploy and implement enforcement strategies designed to resolve problems unique to specific neighborhoods. Within the Department, there are three primary divisions: traffic enforcement, special investigations, and special operations. The TPD is the third oldest police department in the United States. In 2008, the death of a 23-year-old woman acting as an untrained police informant subjected the Department to intense scrutiny. A subsequent investigation uncovered evidence of negligence and multiple policy violations. - Source: Wikipedia
