  1. Male teens and young adults, isn’t that what the Pasco county sheriffs data sharing program is designed to prevent! And yet the Tampa Bay Times continually criticizes our sheriff! And where are the parents? How about holding them accountable for the juvenile delinquents that they’ve raised?

      1. You can’t expect one program to be 100 percent successful and do the work of parents. Hopefully it will help identify and catch these criminals before they move on to even more horrendous crimes.

    1. I saw a bunch of teens in a Woods area on 54 Wesley chapel boulevard area and I was on the phone with a friend driving home and wanted to report the 6-8 teens out at 11:00, my friend discouraged me and now I regret not calling the police but I didn’t know how to describe what I witnessed, calling in about a bunch of teens at 10:30/ 11:00 at night?
