In 2017, the City of Hollywood had an overall reduction in Part 1 Crimes of 8%, compared to 5% in 2016. The overall reduction in crime is a result of the Department’s commitment to establishing partnerships, and positive relationships with our community members along with all the excellent work done by our Officers on a daily basis.

IT WON'T BE A LONG SPEECH, HE SAID Actually, Sergeant Lyle Bien's speech was well deserved, as he received the department's 2017 Supervisor of the Year award! Sgt. Bien (the one whose speech was so long it reached the floor. lol.) has served the Hollywood Police Department in his role as Homicide Sergeant for the past 13 years. He's on call 24/7, answering countless telephone calls at all hours of the day. Among his many cases last year, Sgt. Bien supervised the massive investigation at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills. As the criminal investigation began, a search warrant was obtained by detectives from the homicide unit. Over a period of two weeks, while searching the premise, a huge amount of evidence, both physical and forensic - was removed for processing. During this time, he was in command and control of the investigation. This was after he, and the entire homicide unit, were mobilized for more than five days due to Hurricane Irma. The second recipient at our Annual Awards Luncheon was Detective Kris Doyle. Det. Doyle received the 2017 Officer of the Year award. There's too many cases to even list that Det. Doyle worked on throughout the year. One of the cases he was assigned to was in the Domestic Violence Unit. The suspect in a case had fled after tying his victim up and and strangling her. During the entire incident the couple's infant was in an adjacent room. Det. Doyle worked diligently to obtain an arrest warrant by late morning. He located the suspect at his place of employment and coordinated with members of Hollywood's Violent Crimes Unit and Sunrise Police Department to apprehend the suspect the same day. He compassionately convinced the victim to face her offender the next morning in Bond Court where she provided a powerful statement. This earned the defendant a 'no bond' for the charge of Attempted Murder and a $1M bond for additional charges. Our third recipient was Crime Scene Technician Laura Monetti-Vignau. Laura received the 2017 Employee of the Year award. In October, Laura was assigned to process the crime scene of Ollie, a puppy found in a suitcase in an alley. Laura methodically documented his injuries, collected evidence and processed it for the collection of DNA evidence. This evidence was submitted to the lab for analysis and yielded a profile of a convicted felon, who was ultimately arrested.
