On Monday, 10-8-2018, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement launched a suspicious activity reporting app called FortifyFL. FortifyFL is a reporting tool that allows one to instantly relay information to appropriate law enforcement agencies and school officials. FortifyFL gives students, parents, and teachers an easy and anonymous way to report concerning information about a Florida school, whether it is a threat or an unsafe situation. Both public and private schools can use FortifyFL. We would like to urge all parents and students alike to visit the App Store or Google Play and download the app. The app will use your current location and show a list of schools nearby making reporting a potential problem very easy. Once a tip is submitted, it is automatically relayed to appropriate law enforcement and school officials. It is important to remember that this should not replace calling 911 when there is an active emergency in progress. More information can be obtained by visiting

As a reminder, if sustained wind speeds reach 45 mph, a shelter in place order will be given and all police and fire units will not be able to respond to calls for service. Once sustained wind speeds drop below 45 mph, calls will be prioritized by emergency and responded to as soon as possible. Please be mindful of evacuation orders and continue to monitor local Emergency Management updates.

Top notch work! After a recent crash investigation, this message came to our Facebook page.

She fell asleep with the bear. Thank you so much for all you do!"

What happens when you run from us? We catch you! This morning Mr. Rashad Wilson decided to give a few Niceville Officers a run for their money. After being caught speeding through town, Mr. Wilson bailed from his car and tried to run away. He failed. After a few seconds of running through the woods, he was caught and arrested. Moral of the story, if you have a suspended drivers license and an outstanding warrant, don’t speed. Also, don’t run, we are faster, and then you have to go to jail tired and out of breath!
