Chief's Message - May 16th, 2020
Hello Lauderhill Family,
Though these are difficult times in dealing with COVID-19, I have seen some truly remarkable things. People are slowing down, becoming more involved within their families and striving to help each other. Similarly, the Lauderhill Police and all of its staff embraced the opportunity to help our community.
During the last month, the City of Lauderhill and the Police Department hosted two drive-through food distributions at the Lauderhill Sports Park for Feeding South Florida. One was on Thursday, April 30th, and the other on Thursday, May 14th. With its the partners, volunteers, and City staff, we distributed 1,700 boxes of food to residents of Lauderhill and surrounding communities. It truly was an inspiring time for all of us involved.
If you know or are a senior who is over 60 years old, in need of food, and cannot drive, you may call Feeding South Florida at (954) 518-1818. Press Option 1 to register for direct food delivery to your home.
Finally, as we begin to reopen Lauderhill with the rest of South Florida, please continue to be mindful of CDC guidelines for social distancing. COVID-19 still has no vaccination and can still cause severe illness and even death. We want to reopen safely and positively - together!
