Message from the Chief Of Police
SLEDDING DOWN 2022 INTO THE NEW YEAR
The holidays bring out the best in our Island City with many special events spreading cheer. The Wilton Manors Police Department looks forward to spending this holiday season protecting and serving while you enjoy this magical time of year. It is also a time of year we like to thank you, Island City Nation, for supporting us through 2022 while we strived to serve you better than we did the day before. We encourage everyone to celebrate the new year safely knowing we will be out in full force to protect you, and at the same time rid our roadways of impaired drivers and criminal activity so you can celebrate your New Year’s holiday safely.
As we enter the New Year and during the first quarter of 2023, our police officers will don Body Worn Cameras (BWC) in our endeavor to enhance public safety technologies in our agency. The implementation of our BWC program has been financed through forfeiture funds which are monies seized from criminals. This program will look to bring enhanced transparency to our duties assisting with criminal case presentations in court, and showing the great work our professionals achieve every day while serving our Island City. BWC’s are also a tool to identify misconduct that will certainly be met with the right corrective action. Our agency looks forward to implementing this program as we believe the transparent application of our duties through the lens of BWC’s will build, enhance and restore the trust needed to nurture the desired relationship with you.
Our Island City is the best in the Nation, and I firmly believe this. Together we will achieve much more in 2023. Each and every day our agency will look to achieve our “Next Level” in our endeavor to become the “Pinnacle of our Profession” because you deserve nothing less than the best.
