Substation officers Wantuck, MacLean and Walsh became an integral part of the departmental initiative to reduce burglaries. Substation Officers arrested, or were significantly involved the arrest of no less than 124 arrests for burglary, loitering and prowling, illegal pawning of stolen merchandise, and arrests of individuals that were known burglars, even though they were not committing burglaries at the time of arrest. In addition to burglary related arrests the Unit focused on monitoring and enforcement of section eight/subsidized housing recipients. Their collective efforts resulted in the investigation and prosecution of a major housing fraud incident. Substation officers also collectively identified the need to have a better method of sharing intelligence amongst the department’s Units. As a result they began organizing intelligence meetings. In addition to their routine and self-initiated activities throughout the year, Substation officers also attended 22 community meetings. During these meetings, they instructed residents on safety procedures, provided tips on how to not become a victim of a burglary, and most importantly, promoted the “Make a Call, Make a Difference” campaign, which has significantly increased the calls for suspicious persons made to CSPD. The members of the Substation Unit have put forth an unparalleled effort over the past year. They have worked long and hard and have made many sacrifices to help improve the quality of life for the citizens of Coral Springs.
