CITIZENS POLICE ACADEMY
The Satellite Beach Police Department is hosting a Citizens Police Academy (tentatively) starting Tuesday, February 20, 2018. The 12-week academy will meet in Satellite Beach every Tuesday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
This program is designed to give Satellite Beach citizens and business owners an inside look and working knowledge of the Satellite Beach Police Department. With varied activities and class interaction; the instruction is comprehensive and each week presents different topics covering agency operations and a variety of community safety and awareness issues.
Participants can expect a “hands-on” experience where attendees will be afforded the chance to exam some of the equipment utilized by our Department. It includes detailed information on such topics as uniformed patrol, criminal investigations, firearms, dispatch, jail tour, mock crime scene, simulated “Shoot! - Don’t Shoot!” scenarios and many other interesting topics.
Also available is an elective 2-hour ride-a-long with an officer during an actual patrol shift. You will enjoy a very unique opportunity to walk alongside the officers that protect our community every day. The Academy is open to residents and business owners of Satellite Beach (18 years old and above) but is limited to 30 students. There is no physical fitness requirement to attend.
Candidates must fill out an application which will include a background check. We hope the experience will not only be informative, but fun as well! For any additional information, please contact Bert Berrios at 321-773-4400 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Uniform Crime Report (UCR) for 2016 has been released by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. I am proud to report that the overall crime rate dropped 8.7% in Satellite Beach. This is the fifth consecutive year that the crime rate has dropped and is a DIRECT result of the outstanding work that the men and women of the Satellite Beach Police Department do on a daily basis. I couldn’t be more proud of the dedicated team of professionals that work hard every day to provide a safe environment for every citizen and visitor in Satellite Beach. I hope you will join me in congratulating them for a job well done!
Our School Crossing Guards assist elementary and secondary school children in crossing congested intersections or heavily traveled roads.
Anyone interested should contact Beverly Ryan, Crossing Guard supervisor at 773-4400 for more information.
