Community Based Initiatives

The North Palm Beach Department of Public Safety approaches the task of prevention by offering free information on crime trends, crime prevention tips, attendance at public events, and provides a broad range of Community Based Initiatives.

Beacon Light
Offered to residents to be utilized as an Emergency Beacon which aids emergency response personnel in locating your home. The light is a standard 60 watt bulb that blinks when activated.

Bicycles Donated to Needy Children
Unwanted bicycles are collected and then donated. The bikes are presented to children whose families cannot afford to purchase one for them.

Cell Phones to Seniors
Unwanted cell phones are collected and donated to senior citizens throughout the area for emergency use.

Gun Locks
Offered free to village residents to promote gun safety.

Operation Chill
Officers reward children doing a good deed (ex. Wearing a bicycle helmet) by giving them a coupon for a free Slurpee at the local 7-Eleven.
