Fulfilling a dream in North Port today. Ofc. Ja'mal Felicien sworn in Wednesday. It has been his mission to become an NPPD Officer since he was a child. Ja'mal was even one of our police explorers. His family has a history of law enforcement. Both his Mom and Dad have retired from protecting and serving. They could not be more proud. Welcome to the team Officer Felicien!

Just a few basic rules to live by this Halloween: 1.Don't be crazy and go into someones else's home. You never know where the next Jason lives. 2. Adults, be mindful of kids playing around roadways. Kids are having fun and sometimes they forget to look both ways. Kids, try to look both ways. 3. If you don't have on bright colors, have a flashlight or one of those glow stick deals. 4. If you've made the executive decision to wear a clown costume this year, act friendly. 5. Remember to say please and thank you. That's how we roll in North Port. 6. All extra candy can be dropped off at 4980 City Hall Blvd...year round....just the good stuff, none of that candy corn. #HappyHalloween

Thank you to everyone who came and dropped off old medications this weekend as part of the drug take back event. 55 lbs worth was collected. Just so you know, we have a bin the lobby of the PD 24/7. Please take advantage. The drug collection and disposal program provides a safe disposal location for citizens to properly dispose of unused and/or expired prescription medications. This program provides an environmentally safe alternative to disposing of medications in the landfill or sewer systems which may later negatively effect the environment. It encourages citizens to remove their unneeded medications from their homes, which reduces access to addictive medications for accidental or intentional misuse by children or adults in the home. Citizens may place their unused medication/drugs into the disposal vault anonymously. The entire prescription bottle should be secured by the cap and placed into the disposal vault. Other bio-hazard items such as syringes, or liquids are prohibited. Syringes can be disposed of at your local Fire Station in North Port. For liquid medication the Federal Drug Administration recommends that you mix the liquid with an unpalatable substance such as dirt, cat litter, or used coffee grounds. Place the mixture in a container such as a sealed plastic bag; Throw the container in your household trash.

Don't forget, you can vote daily, 2x a day actually. Please consider helping our K9 unit. We just need a little time with your vote.

A great fun and safe event this evening at City Hall for #nptrickortreat. Thank you everyone for coming out, dressing up, saying hi, and behaving! We're very fortunate to live in such a special place. Can't wait to see all the costumes out there again next week! #besafe #FLCityweek

We're having fun keeping the crowd safe for Trick or Treat at City Hall. Come on down until 8pm. We gots the candy!!!

Early Friday NPPD received a report of a suspicious envelope with writing which included the word bomb written on it. It was left at the Bank of America on US. 41. After the Sarasota County (FL) Sheriff's Office bomb squad investigated the envelope, it was determined to not be a credible threat. The man who left the envelope was identified after returning to the scene. He claims he wanted the bank to fax some information about explosions to federal authorities. Probably not the best idea. However, it appears there was no ill intent and currently no charges are being filed. We thank the community and the SSO for their assistance.

Two new (to us) officers sworn in Thursday. Officers Brian Gregory and Ryan Thorne are official. They have more than 26-years of law enforcement experience between the two. Welcome!

Something just didn’t look right. While patrolling, Deputy Chief Chris Morales and Commander Joe Fussell spotted this vehicle traveling down East Price Blvd. near Jeannin Drive. Turns out, the vehicle had just been involved in a vehicle crash and the driver had left the scene. The vehicle had struck a parked semi-tractor trailer that was unoccupied in the area of Toledo Blade Blvd and Price Blvd.#clues

This is what it looks like when you don't lock your vehicle doors. Thieves are looking for what's easy. On 09/28/2018 at around 3:40am, two suspects, a male and a female, entered the victim’s unlocked vehicles in his driveway. The suspects then went next door and tried to burglarize the neighbor’s vehicles but they were locked. The vehicle burglaries occurred in the South San Mateo Drive area, near Price Boulevard. if you know anything about this case, please contact Det. Shannon Fortuno at (941) 429-7326 or sfortuno@northportpd.com.

Let the tips rain in. Recently, two unknown white males entered the North Port Lowes. One was wearing a Michigan State Spartans green t-shirt and tan shorts, the other had on a Michigan State Spartans green t-shirt and black shorts. The suspects proceeded through the store and grabbed two 5-gallon buckets of roof coating. The suspects then proceeded out the front door with the buckets without paying.
