#ScamAlert A scam call is occurring in our community & the fraudsters are posing as TPD investigators. They call telling people they are being investigated for some type of crime then demand payment using a Green Dot or other gift card. Remember, phone numbers can be spoofed & the fraudsters spoofed our main line to give the appearance someone from TPD is calling. We will never, under any circumstance, ask for money to clear up a crime or any other thing. If you receive a call demanding money, hang up & call us at 891-4200.

Please see the statement from Tallahassee Police Chief Michael J. DeLeo in regards to the release of the 2017 FDLE Uniform Crime Report. “No two communities are the same. Our primary concern should always be Tallahassee, and when you look at our community’s data now compared to previous years, the 2017 numbers reflect a positive trend. Crime in Leon County is down approximately 39 percent compared to 20 years ago, 5 percent compared to 10 years ago, and more recently, 15 percent compared to 2016. So far in 2018, crime continues to decline. There is more work to be done, and TPD will continue to meet every challenge head on with a continued commitment to supporting innovative, community-focused programs helping to drive down crime.”

FOUND! We are so happy to announce Ms. Fields was located safe & unharmed today.

TPD & K9 Kana want everyone to have a #TerrificTuesday in Tallahassee. Stay safe in all of the rain this week. #BeTheDifference #CallUsIfYouNeedUs

#Exceptional These men and women are the best at what they do because they prepare. Some of our officers & TAC Team members recently took their physical fitness test. The officers going through the intense tryout to make the team have many hard challenges. They have to run a distance within a strict timeframe, bench press specific weights, negotiate an obstacle course and much more. Then they go through a test of knowledge & skills, including an oral board. It is through training, skill, and teamwork that they have the confidence to overcome any situation. #Challenge #Motivate #Inspire
