We couldn’t be more excited for the 29th Annual Southeast 👮‍♂️Police Motorcycle🏍️ Rodeo of 2018. This annual event has police officers from all over the United States testing their motorcycle skills in a plethora of different obstacles. However, the most important part of this Motorcycle Rodeo is that all proceeds benefit the Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.). C.O.P.S. is a national organization that benefits the children of police officers killed in the line of duty. Over $40,000 was donated to C.O.P.S. during the 2016 motorcycle rodeo. Come out tomorrow and show your support for #OurMargate Officer Escobar and all the other participants who are competing in this amazing event!

We are excited to announce the newest member of the Margate Police Department, Bryan Castro!

We are so happy to have you join the Margate PD family! #MPDPride #OurMargate #Family 💙

This weekend, our Community Relations Officer Phanor was visiting with some of our wonderful, sweet residents in the Highlands Community at their annual block party! It was truly a ‘blast from the past’ when Ofc. Phanor was having a conversation with one resident and after introducing themselves to one other, Ofc. Phanor realized that Mr. Gockel was his Assistant Principal at JP Taravella High School......almost 14 years ago! What a small world.🌎 We love interacting with our community and it’s even more special when you reconnect with people from long ago! Gladly, Ofc. Phanor was an upstanding student and Mr. Gockel was stocked to see him! A great time was had by all at the block party! #CommunityPolicing #JPT #MargateProud #OurMargate

Drowsy driving kills. It claimed 846 lives in 2014. The best countermeasure to drowsy driving is to get enough rest on a daily basis. Sleep is the only true preventative measure against the risks of drowsy driving. Make it a priority to get 7-8 hours of sleep per night. For more information on healthy sleep, see the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute website.

TRUTH: Impaired driving is illegal and deadly. Prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, and illegal drugs may cause impairment alone or in combination with each other and/or with alcohol. In every State and the District of Columbia, impaired driving is illegal. Whether by drugs - legal or illegal - alcohol, or a combination of both drugs and alcohol, impaired driving puts the driver, their passengers, and other road users at risk. In NHTSA’s National Roadside Survey conducted in 2013-2014, 20 percent of drivers surveyed tested positive for potentially impairing drugs. ( Different substance ⏩ same deadly effects. #SafetyIsKey #MPDNightlyRoutine #DriveSober #PhoneAFriend

Approximately one-third of all traffic crash fatalities in the US involve drunk drivers (with blood alcohol concentrations of .08 of higher). In 2016, there were 10,497 people killed in these #preventable crashes. In fact, on average over the 10-year period from 2006-2016, more than 10,000 people died every year in drunk-driving crashes.( If you plan to drink, plan a safe ride home prior to arriving at your destination. Designate a sober driver ahead of time. #SafetyisKey #MPDNightlyRoutine #DontBeAStatistic #PhoneAFriend
