Tampa, Fla. –Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor was selected as the recipient of the 2014 Dottie Berger MacKinnon Woman of Influence Award, presented by the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce. Chief Castor has served the City of Tampa for more than 30 years, working side-by-side with citizens, neighborhood leaders, activists and business owners to make Tampa a safer place to live, work and raise a family. Since its introduction in 2003, her “Focus on Four” crime reduction plan has been the driving force behind Tampa’s 65% reduction in major crime.

“For the past 30 years, when she’s on duty and when she’s off, Jane does all she can to make people’s lives better. She is our Chief, but she’s also a community leader. She puts her hometown first, and we love Jane for it,” said mayor Bob Buckhorn.

The Woman of Influence Award recognizes a woman whose leadership has made a positive impact in Hillsborough County. It pays tribute to an individual who exemplifies outstanding professional values; demonstrates the ability to go above and beyond the normal expectations of a leader; and serves as an inspiration to the community. MacKinnon was presented the award at the Chamber’s annual Women of Influence Luncheon featuring Barbara Pierce Bush and Former First Lady Barbara Bush before a sold out audience of 900 attendees.
