     Officer Mahabir is currently assigned to the Special Operations Division at Tampa Police Department as an Emergency Planner in the Special Incident Management Unit (SIMU).

     When planning high profile dignitary visits, large parades, and large scale events, he and the team of SIMU work closely with United States Secret Service, FBI, City, and State Officials. In addition, Officer Mahabir created the award winning Business Watch Tampa. A program focused on positive partnerships with local businesses in the City of Tampa.
