(WFLA)– The Tampa Police Department has released a captivating video that features video clips from officer’s body cams and gives viewers a revealing look at the wide variety of situations that police respond to.
The video clips show how officers are often disrespected. In one clip, a man who has been pulled
over continually flicks ashes from his cigarette onto the officer while the officer politely asks him to stop.
Other clips show an officer responding to someone who appears to be passed out on the grass, a man running through a plate glass door and officers chasing suspects on foot.
The clips are dramatic, heartwarming and even funny as they show officers rescuing a woman from the river, helping a person fix a bicycle, and trying to catch a baby gator.
