Message from the Chief Of Police

Thank You


This holiday season, I give THANKS to those who ensure Life’s Just Better Here in the Island City. 

I give THANKS to the professional women and men of our agency who serve our community each and every day and night to make our community a better place for all.  

I give THANKS to Sergeants Rick Shawver and Larry Keesling for what they have given to our profession, our agency, and our community over their successful law enforcement careers.  Both will retire honorably as we close out 2021.  Thank you, gentlemen! 

I give THANKS to our community, who appreciates the hard work and dedication of our professional staff.  Your support means more than you will ever know!  Thank you!

I give THANKS to the members of our community who challenge us to do better each and every day, and they, along with us, refuse to accept "status quo."  We must always strive to achieve the "next level."  

I give THANKS our professional staff has remained healthy throughout this pandemic, and those who have contracted COVID have beaten this virus.  Our hearts go out to those law enforcement professionals and community members who lost their lives to this deadly virus.  

I give THANKS to our City Commission, Manager’s Office, and other City Departments that have supported the daily missions of our police department.  It is their collaboration and support that has allowed us to "police with a passion for our profession, and with compassion for those we serve." 
I give THANKS to you for taking the time to read this article and others in our Town Crier.  Your involvement in our City government is important and appreciated.

The professionals of the Wilton Manors Police Department THANK YOU, and we wish you and yours a safe and prosperous holiday season.  We look forward to working for you and with you this holiday season.
