Spring Break is here and for many beachgoers that means fun in the sun and cooling off in the water.
Jacksonville Beach Ocean Rescue would like to share a few tips with you on how to stay...
The Jacksonville Beach Police Department is urging the public to participate in the "Lock it or Lose it' campaign. With a recent spike in auto burglaries, vehicle thefts, and the upcoming holiday shopping season, residents and guests are urged to please lock vehicle doors and take your valuables with you. Crimes of opportunities often occur when vehicles are left unlocked and/or the keys to the vehicle are left in close proximity to the vehicle. The risk of these crimes occurring to you can be prevented by simply locking your vehicle, and taking your valuables and keys with you.
Officers and our Citizen's On Patrol of the Jacksonville Beach Police Department will be handing out flyers around town to remind all of us to take the time to keep ourselves safe. If you have any questions regarding ways to keep you and your family safe, please contact the Jacksonville Beach Police Department at (904) 270-1667 and ask to speak with one of our Crime Prevention Officers. They will be able to discuss crime prevention strategies for individuals as well as businesses in the community.
In the months to come, the Jacksonville Beach Police Department Crime Prevention Unit will also be available at two community events, The Jacksonville Beach Police Department Kids Halloween Party on October 31st, and The Jacksonville Beach Police Department Kids Christmas Party. More information on these events will be added to our Special Events calendar soon.
