Help us celebrate and honor our United States veterans at tomorrow's City of Pembroke Pines, Florida City Hall · Government Organization's Veterans Day Ceremony! Our PPPD Honor Guard will be there to present the colors 🇺🇸 during the event; please arrive on time so you don't miss out.

Sergeant Kevin Venema and Detective Chris Grant - both United States Army veterans - paid a visit today to the Operation Sacred Trust's annual Veterans Day celebration. Operation Sacred Trust is funded by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and provides a valuable and much-needed resource to homeless veterans who are in need of assistance. Since 2011, Operation Sacred Trust (OST) has led the way in preventing and ending homelessness for veteran families throughout Broward and Miami-Dade counties. Their dedicated team provides outreach, housing and transportation services, clothing, child care, financial planning, and more. This amazing organization is a perfect example of community-positive people working to improve the lives of those individuals who blessed our nation with their selfless service in our armed forces.

❗ CONGRATULATIONS - YOU MAY HAVE WON A MILLION DOLLARS! Does that sound familiar? 🤔 Chances are that you or a loved one have received an email or letter of this nature, and chances are that these messages are phishing scams. Phishing scams are often framed as if they are from a legitimate business, and they almost always require that you send personal information in order to receive your alleged winnings. Scams such as these can normally be verified via a quick Google search of the company or sweepstakes; ConsumerFraudReporting.org maintains a list of prize, sweepstakes, and lottery scams - http://www.consumerfraudreporting.org/lotteryscamnames.php The best course of action if you receive a letter/email of this nature is to delete it, and to follow the old adage: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Burglaries can occur even if you are in your home, so be cautious with leaving an opening into your house or vehicle. To lower your chance of becoming a target, remove or conceal valuables that are located in plain view to people walking or driving by. Parents, please reach out to your child's School Resource Officer (SRO) if you believe that they are involved with (or may become involved with) crime, drugs, truancy, or other delinquent activity. SROs can provide resources for you and your child in order to help them in whatever situation they find themselves in.
