Our police officers had a great time participating in Trick or Treat Down the Streets this morning.

On Friday, October 27th at about 3:00pm a local resident was on the beach with her dog when two dogs described as pitbulls with red leashes, attacked her and her dog. The attack resulted in a fairly serious injury to the victim's arm. A woman described as middle aged, heavy set with short brunet hair then took the dogs and left the beach at Access 28. She did not provide any information as to her identity or the status of the dogs' vaccination history. If you have any information as to the identity of the owner of the dogs, please contact the FBPD at 277-7342 or 310-3202.

This person is suspected of stealing several pairs of glasses from Eye Envy on Sadler Road. The theft took place in the early afternoon of October 24th. If you have any information as to her identity, please contact Detective Tina Smith at 310-3216.

This morning about 4:45am our officers found a set of golf clubs on South Fletcher Avenue. If you are missing your golf clubs or know someone who is, please contact our Property and Evidence Officer, Al Smith at 310-3220 and provide a description to him.

Last week Officer Mike Mazuyrk visited Ms. Kate's Pre-K where he met with three groups of children and talked about the role of a police officer. He also let them see his lights and climb through his police car. Kudos to Officer Mazuryk for spending time with the children on his day off!

In addition to Sergeant Lee the team was staffed with members of the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, the Nassau County Fire Rescue Department, the Nassau County Emergency Management Department and the Jacksonville Fire Rescue Department. The team worked with the Florida National Guard conducting damage assessments and search operations. We are proud of Sergeant Lee for making the effort to help our South Florida neighbors in need.

Special thanks to the kind folks at the Residence Inn on Sadler Road, who stopped by the Police Department to deliver lunch for our officers. Shown here are Claudia D., Sales Coordinator, Bob Hartman, General Manager, Dottie Richards, Director of Sales and Marketing, and Jenna Moore, Digital Marketing Strategist. Our officers certainly appreciate the genuine and very personal support of this great community.

Our friends at Publix, Assistant Store Manager Tammy Burkman and Bakery Manager Sandi Pena, stopped by with a "thank you for what you do" cake. A very nice gesture on a Friday afternoon from the people that make policing in Fernandina Beach a pleasure!

Facebook friends, if you know anything about this please call Detective Tina Smith at 310-3216.

Folks – We are asking that only immediate area residents use North Fletcher Avenue beyond North Beach Park. Many driveways and streets are still flooded and people who want to “check out” the area are doing more harm to the already flooded area by pushing water towards houses. Additionally there are construction materials and debris in the roadways that can be a danger. Please be a good neighbor and stay away from the area for a few days while initial recovery efforts are underway.

SECOND NIGHT OF CURFEW TONIGHT - For the safety of all citizens and the security of property, all of Nassau County, including the City of Fernandina Beach will be under a curfew tonight (Monday 09-11-2017) from 6:00pm until 8:00am Tuesday morning. No one should be on the roadways or moving about unless it is an emergency.

No one should be on the roadways or moving about unless it is an emergency.

For information on Hurricane Irma you may check the Nassau County Emergency Operations Center web site at http://www.nassaucountyfl.com/eoc or contact the EOC at 904-548-0900. As of this posting all bridges are open and the EOC will make the call as to when to close bridges based on the sustained wind speeds. It is difficult to say when that will be, but higher winds are not expected until early Sunday. If you live on Amelia Island you are encouraged to prepare your home and evacuate as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more difficult it may be to find safe shelter.

A BIG THANKS to community members who reported suspicious activity on Pirates Bay Drive this morning and KUDOS to the responding officers who chased down and arrested three suspects who had burglarized a home. We are thankful the home owner was out of town and no one was hurt.

Changes are coming to your Medicare card. By April 2019, your card will be replaced with one that no longer shows your Social Security number. Instead, your card will have a new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) that will be used for billing and for checking your eligibility and claim status. And it will all happen automatically - you won't have to pay anyone or give anyone information, no matter what someone might tell you. Having your Social Security number removed from your Medicare card helps fight medical identity theft and protect your medical and financial information. But even with these changes, scammers will still look for ways to take what doesn't belong to them. Here are some ways to avoid Medicare scams: * If someone calls claiming to be from Medicare and asking for your Social Security number or bank information - Hang up. That's a scam. Medicare won't call you and Medicare will never ask for your Social Security number or bank information. * If someone asks you to pay for your new card - that's a scam too. Your new Medicare card is free. * If someone threatens to cancel your benefits if you don't give up information or money - also a scam. New Medicare cards will be mailed out to you automatically. There won't be any changes to your benefits. For more on the new changes to your Medicare card, visit Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services at https://www.cms.gov/medicare/ssnri/index.html Scams may be reported to the FTC at https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov

Please Buckle Up
