Manatee County is located on the west coast of Florida. The county lies to the south of Tampa. Manatee County is home to 3 state parks and one wildlife refugee.

Other police departments include Bradenton, Holmes Beach, Palmetto, and Longboat Key. All of the law enforcements work aggressively with Florida Highway Patrol. Manatee County is very strict on speeding and just last year alone over 16,000 speeding violations were issued by the departments.
Florida Highway Patrol is very proactive in this county. They use aircraft, as well as speed traps, motorcycles, marked and unmarked cars equipped with radar and laser guns. Speed traps are very common in this area, and the speed traps employ the use of both land and aircraft devices.
