With 2016 in full swing, the Coral Gables Police Department wants to thank you for your continued support in our efforts to reduce crime.
Most recently, CGPD announced an important collaboration with a local company, Waste Management, to enhance our crime prevention programs. “Waste Watch” trains Waste Management employees to serve as an extra set of eyes for law enforcement and public safety officials. In other cities in Florida, tips from trained Waste Management employees have saved an elderly lady from a burning car, helped a lost toddler return home and stopped a potential theft.
This partnership is a perfect example on how this community can work together to keep our city safe through “out-of-the-box” thinking, and progressive law enforcement services.
The Coral Gables Police Department strongly endorses the concept of community policing — keeping close ties with the community we are entrusted to protect. Remember, “If you see something, say something” and report any suspicious activity in your neighborhood or place of business.
This thinking is part of a national campaign that raises public awareness of the indicators of terrorism and terrorism-related crime. It is also a good way to keep us informed if you’ve noticed any unusual activity that needs to be reported to police patrolling your area. Contact us for any emergencies at 911 or for non-emergency situations at 305-442-1600. The State of Florida also has a hotline number, 1-855-FLA-SAFE, that you can call.
Thank you for your trust in us and for working hand-in-hand with our dedicated police force to promote the wellbeing and safety of Coral Gables.
