We're are asking our residents to please continue to report all suspicious incidents and/or persons to us via 911 or our non-emergency 954-764-HELP line. Your tips are a huge help in stopping crime in it's tracks. We also want to recommend to all residents to keep their garage doors, windows, and vehicles secured, closed, and locked when you are not in their line of sight. 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.
