“Being in the community that we serve is a key component to building relationships,” Chief Lawrence Revell said in a statement. “It’s important we continue to do our part to remind the community that we are HERE for them, even before they need us. This approach builds stronger connections between residents and law enforcement officers and seeks to find collaborative solutions to community issues, from minor infractions to systemic problems.”

TPD says citizens are also encouraged to take part in neighborhood watch programs and report suspicious activity by calling (850) 891-4200.

If citizens wish to remain anonymous, they may call Crime Stoppers at (850) 574-TIPS. For emergency situations, call 9-1-1.
