Police Chief's Message


With the holidays quickly approaching, I want to express our appreciation to the residents and visitors of our great City for the support that has been graciously extended to the men and women who serve the city beautiful as police officers, communication officers and support staff.

Building partnerships with businesses, residents, and visitors has proven to be key to solving and preventing community concerns that can be disrupt the peacefulness of our residential neighborhoods and commercial areas. You are our number one partner in keeping our City safe.

  • During the holidays it is important to remember these safety tips:

  • Place gifts where they cannot be seen from outside your home.
  • Never leave purses, wallets or valuables unattended in shopping carts or other locations.
  • Make sure you lock your vehicles and never leave valuables in plain sight, including empty shopping bags.
  • Track packages and have a trusted neighbor retrieve them if you will not be home at the time of delivery.
  • If you notice something or someone suspicious, make a call and make a difference (non-emergency 305-442-1600).

Your safety is our number one goal. Thank you again for all of your continued support.  We look forward to continuing to serve you in the New Year.   Wishing you and your families a happy and healthy holiday season.
