Thank you Mission-Bbq for an amazing lunch today! Delicious!!!

It feels like fall may finally be here! Here are a few safety tips for fall: 1. Never leave windows open when you are not home. 2. Consider purchasing surveillance cameras or putting up additional lighting outside. 3. Take notice of overgrown shrubbery and trim bushes that provide cover for would-be burglars. 4. Avoid walking alone at night, or only walk in well lit areas. 5. When you walk, keep your head up and pay attention to your surroundings.

Stay safe this Halloween! 🤡👿🎃💀👻

1. Make sure all doors and windows are closed and locked when you aren’t home. 2. Leave a light and a t.v. or radio on when you are gone. 3. If you are going to be away for several days, have someone check on your home each day and take your mail out of your mailbox. 4. Put some lights on a timer if you will not be returning until after dark. 5. Always be alert for suspicious activity and report it immediately to your local police.

One of the most common calls we receive is about illegally parked cars. Here are a few key points to help you determine if a car is illegally parked: 1. Cars cannot be parked on sidewalks 2. Cars cannot be parked within 7 feet of a driveway, unless the homeowner approves 3. Cars cannot be parked within 20 feet of an intersection or within 15 feet of a fire hydrant. Parking can be tough, especially on some of the more narrow streets in Atlantic Beach. The list above is not all inclusive, so if you believe a car is illegally parked, please call 247 5859 with a descriptiion of the vehicle and the exact location. We will dispatch an officer to take a look.

Tonight our CPA group got to try their hand at Crime Scene Processing! Not quite as easy as it looks on the TV shows 👮🏼‍♀️🚓

This. Is. Awesome!!!! Thank you to everyone that donated supplies for the Hurricane Michael victims in Bay County. These supplies will be used to fix up the homes of first responders who are busy working around the clock to help others. This community never ceases to amaze me with your generosity! #FOP530 #copshelpingcops #wereinthistogether #BEACHESRESIDENTSROCK

Our Not So Scary Friends have started to arrive! Don’t forget to bring your little monsters by the ABPD Station Oct 29 or 30 from 4-7 for some special treats!

Local volunteer police officers will be traveling to Bay County at the request of Sheriff Ford to assist local officers, corrections officers, dispatchers and staff with the removal and clean-up of debris from their personal homes. Most of these personell have not been able to tend to their own homes, as they are still working in their communities. ABPD will be collecting items for the officers to take with them. Specifically we are looking for work gloves, rakes, heavy duty trash bags, 5 gallon buckets, chain saws, chain saw blades/chains, gas cans, small engine oil, loppers, pruners, wheel barrows, pruning saws, axes, 1x4 framing type lumber, roofing nails, nails of all size, hammers, duct tape, minor PVC repair items, and large garbage cans. Items will be picked up either late tomorrow evening or early Thursday. Yes, it is a quick turnaround, but they are wanting to get out there ASAP!

Some of our Officers received training today for our new boat! Thank you to Firehouse Subs for awarding us their public safety grant to make this purchase!

In addition to Florida being a great place to enjoy the sun and surf, Florida's beaches are important nesting areas for sea turtles and the sand dunes are home to many unique plants and animals. The sand dunes along Atlantic Beach can be severely damaged by beachgoers who walk over the dunes and destroy the plants that are growing there. Dune vegetation (plants) like sea oats are very important. The roots and blades of these plants will help hold the sand in place and reduce the amount of dune erosion. Sea oats are able to withstand harsh salty and windy conditions, but they cannot survive a great deal of trampling. Please help protect the sand dunes by using walkovers to access the beach.

Do you know who I am?? On 9/16/2018, the subject in these pictures used a stolen credit card to purchase $429.14 worth of merchandise from Publix (Neptune Beach). The card was stolen from McDonalds (435 Atlantic Blvd) around 10 am on 9/16/2018. The subject is described as a white male with dreadlocks, with tattoos on both arms and legs. He also appears to have a small amount facial hair. If you can identify this subject, please call the Detective division at 246-5859.

The weather didn’t stop these champs from participating in Walk & Roll this morning!

Hurricane Michael update: We should expect 1-2" rain with some isolated areas getting more. Winds are expected to be 25-30 mph sustained with gusts possibly 40-50 mph. Winds are expected to pick up Wednesday between morning and afternoon and continue until Thursday. There is the possibility of tornadoes during portions of the hurricane bands coming through the area. There may be some minor coastal flooding, particularly at high tide. Minor beach erosion may occur. There is a high surf and dangerous rip current advisory currently in effect. We are not expected to come under a tropical storm watch/warning. ABPD will have extra Officers on duty, however we do not anticipate any major issues!

Tomorrow (Wednesday) is walk & roll to school day! We encourage all students to walk or ride their bike to school. Hopefully the rain will hold off long enough to make this annual event promoting health and safety possible! 🚴🏾‍♂️🚴🏿‍♀️🚶🏼‍♀️🏃🏽‍♂️
