Highlights of Lauderhill Police Enforcement Activity - March
Officers assigned to the Special Projects Unit have been very busy this year roaming in the shadows to make sure the city is safe. These dynamic undercover heroes may very well blend with lawbreakers but when least expected, will bring violators to justice.
- That was the case on January 15th . The Unit, as a result of a citywide buy-bust operation, arrested 6 individual suspects who were charged with various crimes ranging from possession of an illegal substance to possession with intent to sell.
- On January 28th and February 18th, after exhaustive investigations, the Unit members were able to locate and arrest 2 more transgressors conducting similar illicit businesses.
- Members of the Lauderhill Police Department together with members of BSO’s street crimes unit have joined efforts along the corridor of Commercial Boulevard and University Drive to resolve panhandler issues. As a result of the added patrol and enforcement in the area, there have been 6 arrests due to obstruction of the flow of traffic among other violations. The long-term plan of action includes having a dedicated task force to maintain enforcement activities.
