Chief's Message - March 26, 2019
The Lauderhill Police Department has a “Zero” tolerance for loiterers and works very closely with the Broward County Homeless Taskforce to help combat homelessness, littering and loitering in the City. The Lauderhill Police Department’s Community Police Officers partner with numerous homeless outreach stakeholders in an outreach effort to end homelessness in Lauderhill.
At the onset of the year, I was appointed the President of the Broward County Chiefs of Police Association, a non-profit organization established in 1990 to promote law enforcement coordination between the various police agencies within Broward County. The organization's ultimate goal is to unify and strengthen our resources to keep your City, community, and essentially the entire County safe. What does that mean to you? It means that alliances are strengthened and gaps bridged across the County to help build upon our community collaborations for increased community policing programs.
In addition to community policing programs, we have been very active in implementing neighborhood and business crime watch programs. The Lauderhill Police Department joined the National 9PM Routine Movement. The National 9PM Routine Movement was initiated to help you prevent crimes in your neighborhoods and to keep you from becoming a victim through repetition of safety practices. As part of the movement, citizens are encouraged to set their alarms for 9:00 pm and every evening when the alarm goes off, it will remind you to:
- Lock Up: your cars, house, windows, garage door, gates, and shed.
- Turn On: Exterior lights, alarm, & security cameras.
- Bring In: Valuables from your car, yard, patio, or porch.
