Marc Hamlin ’84 has been with the Tampa Police Department since 1990.  He spent over seven years as a detective and sergeant in undercover units of the Narcotics Bureau and the Street Anti-Crime Squad. Hamlin was recently promoted to the position of Major. In this position Hamlin will command the city's Special Support Division.

As a captain, Hamlin has commanded the sector encompassing downtown and Ybor City since 2005. During his command, crime has fallen 29.7 % in Ybor City. He is also the commander of game day operations at Raymond James Stadium and is heavily involved in the planning of Super Bowl XLIII. In District III, Hamlin has worked very closely with the Ybor City Development Corporation, The Downtown Partnership and the Homeless Coalition of Hillsborough County. He has also been a trustee on the City of Tampa Fire and Police Pension Fund since 1999 and was Chairman of the Board for four of those years.

Marc holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Troy State University. Marc is also a graduate of the University of Louisville’s Southern Police Institute, where he was a Dean Scholar Award winner and President of the 106th Administrative Officers Course.

Marc and his wife Paige have been ardent supporters of the St. Francis Prep Florida Alumni Chapter for several years.  In early March of this year, more than 60 alumni and guests gathered in the Hamlin's home for a dinner reception following a pre-season Yankee game.

Congratulations Marc!  We wish you continued success in your new position!
