Fraternal Order of Police wants to use Florida hotel tax money for security

A Florida police group is urging lawmakers to use hotel tax money to keep tourists safe.
The move comes after a string of hotel robberies in Central Florida's tourist areas.
The Fraternal Order of Police wants state legislators to use a portion of the tax that tourists pay for hotel rooms to fund public safety in tourist corridors.
Orlando's International Drive district is one example of a location.
Supporters say nothing could threaten Florida's travel industry more than a reputation of being an unsafe place to visit.
