January is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month. There will be various events this month hosted by different organizations to raise awareness and assist frontline groups combating human trafficking. The Pasco Sheriff’s Office will again be hosting the Light Up the Night event at 6 p.m., on Saturday, February 1, at the Shops at Wiregrass mall in Wesley Chapel. We will highlight amazing organizations, raise awareness, and stand together united in this cause.
Human trafficking is known as "modern day slavery." The perpetrators of this crime find victims who are vulnerable and use force or fraud to exploit them. The International Labor Organization estimates that there are 40.3 million victims of human trafficking throughout the world, who are exploited to the amount of $150 billion, which certainly makes this a global epidemic. The Polaris Project has identified many forms of human trafficking and the three forms that are the most identifiable and investigated here in the United States includes labor trafficking, sex trafficking, and involuntary servitude. We know these three forms are present here in the Tampa Bay area.We know these three forms are present here in the Tampa Bay area.
The Pasco Sheriff's Office, in partnership with key stakeholders in our community, has been working diligently over the years to end human trafficking in Pasco County. Some of the methods and partnerships we have utilized have included:
As we move into 2020, the Pasco Sheriff’s Office will remain committed to our mission to end human trafficking in our community. Reducing the demand for human trafficking, rescuing the victims, and arresting the traffickers and buyers remains one of our community's top priorities.
The start of the 2019-20 school year in Pasco County is August 12 and I urge parents and their children to familiarize themselves with important school safety information provided by the Pasco Sheriff’s Office.
Parents and guardians should understand that student and staff safety is the top priority for our agency on our school campuses. It bears repeating that no weapons, illegal drugs, and tobacco products are allowed on any Pasco school campus. This includes vaping products. Unfortunately, there are too many students arrested for possession violations every year for all of these products.
Making direct or indirect threats to commit acts of violence on any school campus, whether joking or not, is illegal in Florida. It is a felony to threaten any gun violence at a Florida school. The law previously only mentioned threats by bombing, but now any such threat is considered serious and no leniency is given for students who are “only joking.” We must consider any such threat, verbal or written, as serious and we will and have arrested any student making such threats.
Last year, the state Legislature amended the law, (FS 836.10) Written Threats to Kill, making it a felony to convey threats of gun violence or acts of terrorism against any person in writing or through any electronic record, which includes posts to social media. Any person who makes, posts, or transmits a threat in a writing or other record, including an electronic record, to conduct a mass shooting or an act of terrorism, in any manner that would allow another person to view the threat commits a felony of the second degree.
In a partnership with the Pasco County School Board, the Pasco Sheriff’s Office places law enforcement deputies on middle and high school campuses through the school resource officer (SRO) program. The primary role of the SRO is the safety and security of our students and faculty. These full-time deputies investigate any crimes committed on campus and any allegations of child abuse off-campus. SROs ensure that our school grounds are safe during the school day and at school events. Every parent should get to know their child’s school resource officer and turn to that individual for any questions about their child’s safety on campus. Parents should encourage their children to report any suspicious behavior or circumstances to their SRO, school safety guard, or a school official immediately.
There are several ways for students or a parent to report concerning or suspicious activity and you can do so anonymously. This includes a new smart phone application funded by the Florida state legislature called FortifyFL, which is available on both the Apple and Google phone app stores. You can also submit a tip to the Pasco Sheriff’s Office by visiting our website at PascoSheriff.com and clicking on the Submit a Tip link.

June 1 marks the official start of the hurricane season in the United States. Last year, Pasco County again dodged a bullet when Hurricane Michael slammed into the Florida Panhandle, which was recently upgraded to a Level 5 hurricane due to its destructive power. This reminds us that it can happen here and we all need to be prepared as much as possible when the unthinkable happens. It is that time of year for all of us to go over our hurricane and disaster preparedness before it is too late.
