The community rallies with support, while “Stomping Out Gangs Across Florida.” Stuart Police and children from the East Stuart Youth Initiative after-school program, which is funded by Children’s Service Council marched to show their support against gang violence. The event was sponsored by Florida Gang Investigators Association and they provided t-shirts to celebrate International Gang Awareness Day. Chief David Dyess joined the march and presented a replacement bicycle to a 13 year old girl, who had her bicycle stolen the evening prior.

South Fork High School honored first responders tonight at their football game. It was very rewarding to be a part of this event alongside the Florida Highway Patrol, Martin County Sheriff’s Office, Sewall’s Point Police, Martin County Fire Rescue and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Each department was given a football signed by the graduating football players and cheerleaders.

Coffee with the Cops had a great turnout this morning at Stuart Coffee Co. in downtown Stuart. We’d like to send a huge thank you to Stuart Coffee Company for allowing us to build relationships with our community.

Rain or Shine...Let’s Talk About Crime! Stuart Police Department’s Community Relations Unit rallied the residents together for a Mobile Neighborhood Crime Watch Meeting. We decided to just build a mobile classroom in the roadway and bring the meeting to them. The meeting had a great turnout and those who attended had a chance to hear from Chief David Dyess about recent activities in their neighborhood. It was very informative and a great opportunity for residents to “meet and greet” with their law enforcement officers. We provided crime prevention tips and information on upcoming future events that will be hosted by the Stuart Police. Of course, Big Apple Pizza in Stuart donated pizza and we have to give a huge thank you for their generosity. Remember, if you see something...say something!

Stuart Police apprehended a suspicious Iguana hiding from authorities from a local downtown restaurant. This guy has been able to elude officers for a few days now and sightings of him resulted in an “Iguanahunt”, leaving officers empty handed. Today, he was safely taken into custody without incident from the outdoor seating area.

Coffee with the Cops at Stuart Coffee in downtown Stuart. On October 20th, come out and join Stuart Police Officers for a cup of fresh coffee.

A little rain didn’t ruin the day... the Fall Family Festival went on as planned! It was a great event for a great cause! The community showed their support for Operation 300 and in return the children had a blast. The Stuart Police Department’s “Thin Blue Bar-B-Que” was called into action for the event and easily handled the cooking needs. Kids and grown-ups alike showed off their artistic side and painted a patrol car. K-9 Bady and his handler weren’t left out either and put on a demonstration in the rain. Of course, none of this would of been possible without the planning and sponsorship by Aycock Funeral Homes and Fernhill Memorial Gardens. We thank them for allowing us to be a part of this awesome event. Their commitment to Operation 300 and donation of all the proceeds will ensure the success of the organization, which helps children of fallen veterans. The Stuart Police Department believes that community partnerships like this, makes Stuart such an amazing place to call home.

If you happened to be in the area of Sailfish Park on Friday night, you may have noticed some ghouls, goblins, witches, or other characters looming around the area. The City of Stuart partnered up with Tykes and Teens for a movie in the park. Hocus Pocus was the featured movie, along with a costume contest, free popcorn, and many other fun activities. Oh, and if you think you may have seen Chief Dyess riding an ostrich, your eyes were not playing tricks on you. Keep checking our Facebook page for our next movie in the park.

The Stuart Police Department was honored to be a part of the Neighborhood Night Out at Tierra Verde Condominiums. The evening was a huge success and members of the Stuart Police Department had a chance to "meet & greet" with the residents. Officer Tyler Bovee and his K-9 partner “Bady” gave a great demonstration. During the event, Chief David Dyess presented an official Stuart Police “Challenge Coin” to a resident, Howard Duncan Knotts, who is 106 years old. Mr. Knotts served in the Merchant Marine during World War II and retired after a long distinguished career. Mr. Knotts had a second career with Caterpillar Tractor Company and also retired after 20 years. Congressman Mast’s Office presented Mr. Knotts with a flag that flew over the U.S. Capital building in Washington D.C. We especially would like to thank all of the residents at Tierra Verde for their generosity. It's partnerships like this that make Stuart such a great place to call home.

The Community Relations Unit had a great time today visiting these inquisitive VPK students at Temple Beit HaYam. Our agency is so honored to have had an opportunity to present the Community Helper’s program with such great children. We always value the partnerships within the community.
