News & Announcements

Message From The Chief

We have some excellent news to share with you! Julio Davila is our new Code Supervisor who started with your Police Department on August 3rd.  He brings with him a wealth of code experience including Weston and Miami-Dade County.  You can reach Julio at 954-390-2157 or email .  No doubt he will lead our Code Team in providing our residents the quality of life environment we all deserve.  Welcome aboard Julio!! 

Although the Wilton Manors Police Department has, in the past, shared with you crime and safety information and tips; we are going to “switch gears” this edition and share with you some “quality of life” tips we recently read. On February 8, 2015 the Wall Street Journal Sunday, published its last Sunday spread after 15 years of sharing a plethora of life guidance. Here are the highlights of that final edition: 

Some Basic Quality of Life Principles: 

Remember: “The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything.  They simply make the best of everything they have.”  Jayaram

  • The biggest time waster: commuting.  A study in Sweden found that a long commute increases the risk that a married couple will separate by 40%; not to mention the adverse effect it has on your health!!
  • If the primary reason you work at your particular job is for the money; you are lost.  Two keys to a fulfilling life are: 1) doing what you are passionate about and 2) spending quality time with family and friends.  It is as simple as that!  Be happy with what you have and do not be consumed by the relentless pursuit of what you want.
  • The Power of being Polite: we see it every day; road rage, cutting in line, people in a hurry because they have forgotten what is really important.  Some good advice: slow down and enjoy life.  Be polite to people and it will be returned to you 10 fold.

Thank you to the folks at WSJ Sunday for sharing so much wisdom over the past 15 years!!
Peace, Love, Happiness
