Due to his experience in the U.S. Coast Guard and the police workforce, Chris is able to deal with minor and major threats that come to Tampa Bay.

“In Security Operation and Emergency Management no day is every the same. Whether you’re dealing with a threat, whether it be from a customer, internal threat, cybercrime, or whatever you have to respond to that, so you’re always preparing for those events and same with Emergency Management…”

With his experience in the U.S. Coast Guard, Chambers has a lot of passion and dedication towards his country and community. He advocates for the maritime community by offering career opportunities, workforce development, mental health care, and better care for veterans and their family. Chambers sits on the Tampa Bay Harbor Safety and Security Committee and Area Maritime Security Committee. Chris not only devotes his career to preventing threats throughout Tampa Bay, but also his personal time.
