New License Plate Readers

The Juno Beach Police Foundation has generously provided funding for the Juno Beach Police Department to acquire three additional Flock Safety, Inc. cutting-edge ALPRs (Automatic License Plate Reader) cameras.

These advanced cameras capture computer-readable images of license plates, allowing law enforcement agencies to compare plate numbers against those of stolen cars or vehicles driven by individuals suspected of criminal activity. By integrating information from national and state crime databases, the cameras provide real-time alerts whenever a vehicle associated with a known suspect or a stolen vehicle passes by.

The new ALPRs will be strategically placed on US Highway-1 and the Donald Ross Intracoastal bridge.

It's worth noting that Flock Safety technology is widely used, with over 1,500 Flock Safety communities and 1,200+ law enforcement agencies benefiting from its advanced capabilities.

Coffee With A Cop


Coffee With a Cop is a monthly event that fosters connections between the community and Police Officers. It's a casual gathering over coffee where participants can discuss issues and learn more about each other. There are no long speeches or agendas, just enjoyable and educational conversations.

Juno Beach holds this event every month, and the upcoming gathering will take place on Wednesday, April 5th at 9:30 AM on the Town Center patio.

Coaching the Mature Driver Course

If you're a driver over the age of 55, you may be eligible for a discount on your automobile insurance. According to Florida Statutes, completing an approved Mature Driver Course can earn you this discount. Once you've successfully completed the course, simply provide your completion certificate to your insurance company to receive the discount, which typically lasts for three years.

If you're interested in taking the course, the Juno Beach Police Foundation has partnered with the Juno Beach Police Department and the Safety Council of Palm Beach County to offer a free course on April 11th from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The class will break for lunch around noon.

To learn more about the course and to register, please contact the Safety Council of Palm Beach at (561) 845-8233.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is open to everyone. Please note that needles, liquids, and illegal drugs will not be accepted.

For any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact the Juno Beach Police Department at 561-626-2100. Let's work together to keep our communities safe and healthy!

Bicycle DNA

Did you know that over 1.5 million bicycles are stolen every year? Shockingly, less than 3% of these are ever returned to their rightful owners. One reason for this is the lack of a national bicycle registration database.

However, that is about to change. On April 1st, the Juno Beach Police Department was one of the first agencies in South Florida to launch a new crime prevention solution that links bicycles to a national database using DNA labels affixed to the bikes.

Each label has a unique PIN that is registered to the owner of the bicycle, and their contact information is loaded into the database accessible to every law enforcement agency throughout the nation.

The Juno Beach Police Department is routinely focused on high-target items, such as catalytic converters, construction equipment, bicycles, sporting goods, electronics, and jewelry, in their crime prevention efforts.
