Law enforcement officers across Florida will be here next week to help with the Republican National Convention, and local business owners want them to feel right at home.
So they're putting together welcome bags that will include items like sunscreen, chapstick, coupons for local restaurants and keepsakes from some of our biggest attractions.
"Because they will not see all the nice things in Tampa, obviously," Major Sophia Teague of Tampa police said. "They're going to be working so they're not going to be able to go out and see our museums and Busch Gardens and Buccaneers football."
The items were carefully chosen. Business and city leaders hope the welcome bags will also serve as an advertising tool. They want to encourage visiting officers to bring their families here for vacation.
