·          PBSO Updates
o    Deputy Brandon (I forgot his last name) gave some crime states for 7/1-7/7:
§   3 Residential Burglaries
·          710 North A Street
·          228 North G Street
·          328 North G Street
§   1 Arson
·          330 North H Street
o    The city of Lake Worth does not have the ordinance every other city has in place to enforce the remove of abandoned vehicles from its streets. 
§   This means that the abandoned red truck with a smashed bumper and flat tires on C Street between 4th and 6th street will remain there until an ordinance is passed.
o    Please write our City Commissioners an email requesting a red tag ordinance for abandoned vehicles be passed so this heap of trash will be taken out of our neighborhood. Click here for the email address of each city commissioner.
o    The undercover burglary detail that we were told about in June is still underway in our neighborhood. PBSO is walking, biking and driving around in plain clothes looking for suspicious activity. No statistics will be available until after the detail has completed.
o    Keep your alleyways clear of brush and debris. These alleyways are a huge issue for the PBSO and the clearer they are the less crime can happen in them.
·          C.O.P. Program
o    C.O.P. is still recruiting.  For more information on the C.O.P. program, please visit
·          Special Thanks For Speaking To the TRNA
