Since it is National Police Week, Brownie Troop 40306 from St. Andrews Episcopal Academy, wanted to do something special for our officers. Tuesday, they paid a special visit to the Main Station to deliver gift bags to our officers. Because of their thoughtfulness and generosity, Chief Diane Hobley-Burney held a swearing-in ceremony and made Troop 40306 an honorary Fort Pierce Police Unit. Each of the 15 second and third graders were ceremonially pinned by a Police Department personnel. We had a blast!

Final count, $9000 for Special Olympics Florida. Unfortunately, it was not the five figure ending we were hoping for, but it's not a bad effort at all either....but then again, maybe someone may want to fill in the difference and make it a five figure ending after all. Last night, the Fort Pierce Police Department held the last Tip A Cop of 2018 at Red Lobster and earned another $1000 in tips, making a total of $9000 from all the tips from the five Tip A Cops this year. We would like to sincerely thank Red Lobster and their service team for inviting us back this year. We would also like to thank everyone from the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office who helped us at the first three Tip A Cops and of course a huge thank you to everyone who came out to support our efforts by helping at the event or dining…..or both. Many thanks again and we will be back in 2019.

One more hour here at Red Lobster in Fort Pierce.... If you haven't eaten yet, come help us reach our fundraising goal for Special Olympics Florida at our final Tip A Cop even this year.

When Fort Pierce Police Officers and community volunteers arrive at First Step Park every week, they never know how many children will show up. On Tuesday, they were in for a pleasant surprise. Approximately 80 children, parents, and adults from the neighborhood made their way to the gathering. Members of the Fort Pierce Police Explorer Post 477 joined the fun after their meeting at the park, located at 31st Street and Avenue G. The Explorers cleaned up, played a little kickball with the kids, and assisted in serving the weekly meal. A great time was had by all, but it wouldn’t be possible without the continued support of our dedicated and caring helpers. #LOVETHEFORT

Don’t forget, tomorrow, we will be doing our fifth and final Tip-a-Cop of 2018. Come and join us at the Red Lobster in Fort Pierce and support this awesome event to benefit Special Olympics Florida. Officers from the Fort Pierce Police Department will be working as “servers” to earn “tips” that will be donated to Special Olympics Florida. So, if you have not yet made dinner plans for tomorrow night, come join us at the Red Lobster and help us make our Tip A Cop return to Red Lobster a success. This is our first year back at Red Lobster for Tip A Cop after being gone for a number of years. We will be at the Red Lobster (6401 Darter Court, Fort Pierce) from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. That’s tomorrow, Thursday May 10th. Come and enjoy a great meal and support a great cause! We have made $8000 in tips so far and maybe you can help us make our final tip count a five figure number. We look forward to seeing you there.

On Monday night, Fort Pierce City Commissioners honored all fallen officers and their families by designating May 15 has National Peace Officers Memorial Day and May 13-19, 2018 as Police Week. Mayor Linda Hudson and Fort Pierce Commissioners Reginald Sessions, Jeremiah Johnson and Tom Peron presented Chief Diane Hobley-Burney with a proclamation. Chief Hobley-Burney said this annual tribute reminds residents of the ultimate sacrifice made by our officers, many of whom they may not have known. The Chief said the duty of a police officer is to serve and protect, and we will always do that.

Cops and Lobsters, as it was called at one time is coming back to Fort Pierce. This Thursday, May 10th, we will be doing our fifth and final Tip-a-Cop of 2018. Come and join us at the Red Lobster in Fort Pierce and support this awesome event to benefit Special Olympics Florida. This is the first year we are back at Red Lobster, after an absence there for a number of years. Officers from the Fort Pierce Police Department will be working as “servers” to earn “tips” that will be donated to Special Olympics Florida. With the community’s continued support, we have already earned $8000 at our four prior Tip A Cop events this year so please come out and help us continue the great success we have had for the 2018 Tip A Cop events. Maybe, we will close out the Tip A Cop season with a five figure donation to Special Olympics, Florida. This event will be at the Red Lobster (6401 Darter Court, Fort Pierce) from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. That’s this Thursday, May 10th.

Sunday Funday..... The Fort Pierce Police Department was once again a part of Waterfest, a free public event where one can try out various kinds of water sports. Even amidst periods of rain and sun, over 300 people came out to enjoy themselves on this day. Once the kids and adults got out of the water, we provided them with goodies and crime prevention literature.

Helping support community events. Today, the Fort Pierce Police Department's Explorer post helped staff the Fort Pierce Police Department tent at the "Golphin with the Pros" event, an event hosted by Sponsor Me Inc to help under privileged children in our community. Thank you to the folks at Sponsor Me Inc. for caring for our community's children.

It was a teachable moment, an opportunity for Fort Pierce Deputy Chief Kenny Norris to show some of the neighborhood kids how to become more active in their community and value First Step Park where they gather every week to have fun and make new friends. During this week’s Courageous Kids' outing, the children grabbed trash bags and cleaned up the park before games were played and food was served. Department employees look forward to their weekly get-togethers with the kids. We couldn't do this without the support of some faithful community volunteers. Consider meeting us there next Tuesday or on any Tuesday between 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. #ILoveFortPierce
