Top Spots for a DUI Arrest by the Tampa Police Department

Every fisherman has a favorite spot on the lake or river. The same might be said of the DUI enforcement officers with the Tampa Police Department.

Like an experienced fisherman, the officers tend to go back to the same location again and again. From the map it looks like Tampa’s east-west connector, Kennedy Boulevard, has the best fishing. Armenia Avenue and Howard Avenue both north and south of Kennedy also look popular.

The Tampa Police Department also likes to target visitors to Channelside Bay Plaza with its bars and night clubs, restaurants, hotels, entertainment and events. Of course, Ybor City also appears to have a lot of action.


Before the City of Tampa Police Department reorganized the DUI enforcement unit, its website also published a list of the top 10 locations for a DUI arrest.


The Tampa Police Department DUI enforcement unit also conducted “Wolfpack Operations” to target specific parts of the city. During these wolfpack operations officers on the TPD DUI Units would act without warning to aggressively patrol the area looking for impaired drivers.

So how many DUI Arrest does the Tampa Police Department Make Each Year?
