A driver education program like no other, the Teen Driver Challenge pairs teen drivers with certified law enforcement instructors for two days of intense training.

After several hours of classroom fundamentals, the teen drivers get behind the wheel on our driving pad at the Walter C. Heinrich Practical Training Center to hone their new skills.

They'll spend hours practicing obstacle avoidance, threshold breaking, off road recovery, and cornering.

Pit stop conversations with our deputies will include learning about vehicle maintenance like proper tire pressure and how to check vehicle fluid levels. They'll also talk about peer pressure and the dangers of drunk driving.

For more information on how to enroll in the next Teen Driver Challenge, check out www.hcso.tampa.fl.us or contact our Community Outreach Division at 813.247.8115.

We appreciate it when someone sees something, then says something. Here’s a case in point: a thief broke into a Subway on East Fowler Avenue by smashing the glass door with a hammer.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office was honored to be a part of a special announcement on Wednesday that will benefit the children of our county for years to come. The event was to showcase the altruistic gesture of Laurice Hachem, and her daughter, Mechelle Meredith-Ehardt, to create a new club for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay. The money from the Sam & Laurice Hachem Foundation will be used to build the club that is named in their honor. The new club is on county property near Webb Middle School in Town 'N Country. Mrs. Hachem said their foundation wanted to do something to help the youth of the area. The new club is expected to draw hundreds of children. HCSO extends its sincere appreciation to the Hachem family and their foundation for the generosity and foresight to change children's lives for the better.
