Violent crime in Pasco has steadily increased over the last five years, with an elevated incidence of aggravated assaults, robberies, and opioid-related violent crimes, often committed by a core group of repeat offenders. Academic research consistently suggests that a small number of offenders are responsible for the vast majority of crimes. Therefore, finding ways to identify, target, and deter these prolific offenders is an effective and evidence-based approach to crime prevention. The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office (PSO) currently utilizes a prolific offender list aimed at identifying those committing the majority of the “big four” property crimes (auto burglary, residential and business burglary, and vehicle theft). Utilizing the same approach, the goal of this project is to develop and implement a prolific offender list focused specifically on repeat violent and drug offenders, particularly those using guns, and individuals responsible for illegal distribution of narcotics, specifically opioids. An intensified and coordinated focus on the offenders who commit the majority of these offenses, combined with a continued strategy of focused deterrence, will provide some relief. Additionally, PSO will implement enhanced patrol strategies through Strategic Targeting Area Response (STAR) teams.
