HPD SEARCHES FOR BURGLARY/SEX ASSAULT SUSPECT: On January 11, 2018 at approximately 1:30 a.m., the suspect broke into a house, confronted the victim, demanded money, and then sexually assaulted the victim. The suspect then fled the residence. Detectives believe the suspect in this crime may be linked to two previous burglaries that occurred in the same area within the past two months. The area encompasses Pembroke Road to the south and Washington Street to the north, between the Federal Highway and Dixie Highway Corridors. In each of these prior incidents, the method of entry was similar with the suspect breaking into the home in the early morning hours. Additionally, the suspect in these burglaries made threats of sexual assault. The suspect is described as a black male, between 5’8” and 5’10”, average build, believed to be in his 30’s. In the two burglaries the suspect was wearing a hooded jacket and gloves and covered his face. He is believed to be in possession of a blue sweatshirt with the word “RUN” written across the front and black hooded sweatshirt that zips up the front. In the most recent case, he was described as wearing gray sweatpants, gloves, and had his face covered with a piece of clothing. Detectives are asking anyone who may have information with regard to this incident call the Hollywood Police Department at 954-764-4357 (HELP) or 954-967-4411. Tipsters can e-mail or text to hollywoodpdtips@hollywoodfl.org. Information can also be given to Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS or www.browardcrimestoppers.org.

OFFICER ASSISTS IN STOPPING VIOLENT CRIME SPREE, AWARDED OFFICER OF THE MONTH - NOVEMBER 2017 Officer Chris Carasa and his fellow officers stopped four violent suspects in their tracks...before they could do more damage in our city. In September, the suspects carjacked a vehicle in Miami Dade County and drove into Hollywood where they committed two armed robberies and attempted a third one, all within 20 minutes. The suspects attempted to flee, but thanks to excellent teamwork, were quickly taken into custody. The arrestees were found to be in possession firearms. The victims' stolen property which included cell phones, purses, wallets, and keys were recovered and returned. #OfficerOfTheMonth #HollywoodFL

Since today is national #LawEnforcementAppreciation we'd like to share a very kind note we recently received from a #HollywoodFL resident. Two of our officers responded to a report of a vehicle burglary. Afterwards, a parent of the victim wrote us saying "They helped my child see that they can get the material things back, They did a great job and made us feel comfortable. I think they should be told that they do a great job an we appreciate them. As a parent...we always need to know that there are officers who care about them as well. So please thank them for me and we appreciate all you do." #ThankYou also to South Florida Concerns of Police Survivors for holding their annual Law Enforcement Appreciation event over the weekend. #LEAD2018 You can show your support in a number of ways: • Wear blue clothing in support of law enforcement. • Send a card of support to your local police department or state agency. • Share a story about a positive law enforcement experience on social media. • Ask children in your community to write letters in support of law enforcement. • Participate in Project Blue Light - Proudly display your blue light in support of law enforcement. Most importantly, if you see a police officer, thank a police officer.

🙌🙌🙌 “The competition helped us gain a great appreciation for the City of Hollywood. Many parts came together to produce the video and write the essay. We have a better understanding of how the Mayor’s office, city commissioners and law enforcement work together and how we can be better citizens.” #Congratulations #YouthAmbassador

REMEMBER THIS? Lets not have a repeat of last year. As a REMINDER- all-terrain vehicles are not allowed on City streets. ATVs, dirt bikes and any off-road vehicles are illegal to drive on paved roads. In addition, any person found to be operating a vehicle in a reckless manner such as running red lights, performing stunts, or weaving in and out of traffic is subject to possible arrest and confiscation of their vehicles. Violators can also face fines of $116 to $1,100. On Sunday, Hollywood Police arrested an individual who crashed into a vehicle while he was illegally and dangerously driving a four-wheeler on a City street. The individual was found to be in possession of a loaded handgun. He faces charges of Committing a Third Degree Felony While in Possession of a Weapon, Fleeing and Eluding, Reckless Driving, and Fail to Register Motor Vehicle. Being in possession of a firearm during the commission of any crime could enhance and increase charges. In 2017, Hollywood Police towed 20 vehicles and arrested 10 reckless drivers including Wilfredo Garcia, who was taken into custody by the NYPD from charges resulting from the illegal activities that occurred during the “Bikes Up, Guns Down” ride last January. Garcia was charged with Reckless Driving and Fleeing and Eluding Police. The safety of our residents and visitors is of utmost importance to the Hollywood Police Department. These types of accident and injuries is exactly what we are trying to prevent from happening.

We met Victoria while delivering gifts at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital. But meeting her was our gift. She is an incredibly strong and courageous young woman who has already been through so many challenges in such a short time. Thank you Victoria for spending some time with us. We here at HPD are thinking of you and can't wait for your visit! #LoveWhatMatters #HeartsForVictoria

THIEVES TARGET HONDAS, ACURAS FOR AIRBAGS: It can be done in just a matter of minutes. Thieves going from car to car in a crowded parking lot - stealing airbags. They usually target Hondas and Acuras. We've seen an increase in airbag thefts in the City of Hollywood and across South Florida in the past few months. While the thefts occur city-wide, there are steps you can take to reduce the chances of this happening to you: * Utilize a lock on your steering wheel * Utilize a car alarm * Park in a well-lit location * Keep your vehicle locked at all times * Take out your valuables

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the HPD family! #SouthFloridaChristmas Please take a moment to think of all the men and women working today and spending time away from their families to keep us safe. #ThankYou #HappyHolidays

These amazingly strong 💪 kids can’t go home for Christmas. But despite that, and the challenges they are going through, they have huge, beautiful smiles. We were honored to be able to spend the morning with them, giving them toys and gifts, and getting to know them. Thank you Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital for all you do for these children.
