Believe it or not, it is possible to enjoy the Gasparilla Pirate Invasion without waking up with a criminal record or regretting your own birth. Tampa Police Department (TPD) is on a mission to protect and serve during this years Gasparilla Festivities. As you are walking around you may feel like someone is watching you.. You aren't just paranoid, "Big Brother" is watching. The Tampa Police Department has been using mobile surveillance camera units put in place to help secure the Republican National Convention last year.

Tampa Police believe the cameras will help to stop fights and find lost children.  American Civil Liberties Union of Florida president Mike Pheneger said,"It sounds like (Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor) wants to use them [the cameras] for a set of problems that haven't materialized in previous Gasparilla parades." The Tampa Police will also use Bobcat Golf Carts, bicycles, Segways, and horses.

So here are some guidelines to follow so you wont need legal representation.
