City of Winter Park's 15th Annual Unity Heritage Festival The event promoted family history and raised funds for the Educational Fulfillment Fund for local economically disadvantaged youth. WPPD was proud to support and attend this community event. Awesome time!

Michael Luster, who is a retired sergeant from the Illinois State Police wrote this song - No One Knows How I Feel. It is sung by Elizabeth McCoy and was recorded in Nashville. Proceeds of individual iTunes downloads will go to families of fallen heroes, both military & first responders.

Peanut butter and jelly time....NO! It's CHILI TIME! The 10 annual Crimeline Chili Cook off was held today at Seminole Harley Davison. Team Winter Park......again.....took 1st place in the 'Cop' division. Our chili was so good it was a crime if you didn't get to try it.

Administrative offices at WPPD will be closed on Monday in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Day. Emergency services will not be affected.

Thanks Winter Park Chamber of Commerce and your Leadership Winter Park program members for coming out on Government Day. This was a great opportunity to showcase our facilities and share with you what we do. We were happy to provide some hands-on experiences (which appeared to be a big hit and fun). We enjoyed the interaction and community connection - now you know a little more about your WPPD!

Calendars Are Available Remember, back over the summer we had a couple of photo shoots at the Public Safety Building featuring WP's Finest? We had a blast posing with the cute doxies. The calendar is now available for ordering. You would support Florida Dachshund Rescue and their salute to first responders. Looks like our very own Sgt. Garvin McComie is featured!

WELCOME Opening of new business Tropical Smoothie Cafe Commissioner Sarah Sprinkle & Sgt. McComie welcomed them.

On Wednesday, January 10, 2018, at 1:35 A.M, officers responded to the 300 block of East Webster Avenue, in reference to a vehicle burglary in progress. Patrol units set up a perimeter around the area and the canine unit was deployed. The suspect was tracked and located, hiding in a nearby backyard behind a concrete wall. (Go Brutus!) The suspect was arrested for Loitering and Prowling and Burglary to a Conveyance. Please remember to always lock your vehicles and remove any valuable items from the interior compartment before you go into your residence. If you observe any suspicious activity in your neighborhood call the police immediately. See Something, Say Something.

This morning, MPO Whitman & Officer Rodriguez gave a tour of WPPD to a young man and his grandfather, who were visiting from Brazil. Arthur Cesar Mazur & Elisabeth Mazur learned about policing in the United States. They were appreciative of the time and the tour. TY for stopping by!

Heartbreak Today, we honors Deputy Zack Parrish who gave his life while protecting his community. Deputy Parrish was shot and killed in Douglas County (Colorado) Sunday morning.

We are working a bad accident on Orange Ave near Westchester. The roadway is closed and will be for several hours. We have Sgt McComie available for the media at the TD bank located at 1560 Orange Ave. He will be in the south side parking lot near17-92.

Be Responsible This weekend we are combining forces to aggressively enforce DUI laws. Our partners include Orlando Police Department, Orange County Sheriff's Office, Florida, UCF Police Department and others who are participating in a multi-jurisdictional DUI Saturation Patrol Operation. The choice is yours - don't make a BAD choice - make yours BEFORE you start to drink. Have a plan and a sober/safe ride lined up. There are no excuses and there will be ZERO tolerance. Drive sober or get pulled over and go to jail.

Holiday Giving πŸŽ€β€οΈπŸŽ€ This caring young lady, Maggie McMillen, wanted to do something nice for kids who don't have something to look forward to during the holiday.

The timing was prefect as we are making deliveries for others today! BIG BIG thank you to Maggie for her generous and caring actions to HELP OTHERS in our community.
