Maintaining a safe community remains a top priority. The highly-recognized “Make a Call, Make a Difference” campaign is on-going, and the Coral Springs Police Department reminds residents to call in any suspicious activity.
Recently, a homeowner called to report seeing someone sitting in a suspicious vehicle parked in her neighborhood. Officers responded and conducted surveillance on the vehicle. A short time later, the officers observed two males walking from the rear of a residence carrying televisions. The males were arrested and confessed to several other burglaries. One phone call by an observant resident took three criminals off the streets.
"This program has shown that when the community works with their police department, together we can make a difference,” Chief Anthony Pustizzi said. “While we may not be able to stop all crimes, we can certainly make it harder for criminals to get away with them.”
Vehicle and residential burglaries only take seconds to happen, so please be aware of your surroundings and do not hesitate to call the police. Residents’ involvement could prevent a crime before it ever happens.
Report non-emergency suspicious activity by calling the Police Non-Emergency line at 954-344-1800.
