With Community Outreach in mind, Chief Smith made a request of the Police Foundation in February to fund the purchase of a Police Golf Car.
In his grant request he cited “Increased Police visibility, quality of life, patrolling of large events and the setup and staging of major Town functions” as the proposed uses of the vehicle.
Chief Smith noted to the Board that he would like to further increase the interactions between his Officers and the community. This was of course prior to the current “Social Distancing” that the Coronavirus has brought about.
The Juno Beach Police Foundation was again quick to respond to the Chief’s request and funded the purchase of a street legal Club Car Golf Car fully outfitted for Police patrols.
The new vehicle is currently doing patrols along Ocean Drive, Kagen Park, and around Pelican Lake. Look for even further deployment of the vehicle, with our wonderful Juno Beach Police personnel, in the months to come.
