Thank You - And Happy Holidays!

As we begin the holiday season the Police Foundation wants to express our gratitude for your support of our organization as well as for our dedicated Juno Beach Police Officers.

We hope that you are proud of all that the Police Foundation has accomplished over the past few years and we look forward to your continuing support in the years to come.

We wish all our residents, business owners and visitors a happy holiday season.

Foundation Funded Drone Fully Operational

Several months ago, the Police Foundation funded a DJI Mavic 2 drone for use by the Juno Beach Police. Two Police Officers have been trained in its use and are now licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to fly the drone for commercial purposes.

During a recent peaceful protest at the FPL/NextEnergy facility, the drone was deployed to provide an aerial perspective of activities. The drone flew at 200 feet to get a full view of what was happening on both on US-1 and Universe Boulevard.

The drone was also deployed during a Fall Festival at the Holy Spirit Lutheran Church on Ellison Wilson Road. The drone allowed Officers to monitor traffic on Ellison Wilson Road and vehicular congestion that may have occurred because of the event.

Again on November 13th the drone was deployed to provide an aerial overview of the Arts & Crafts Festival on Ocean Drive.

Police Chief Brian Smith said that the use of the drone was simply to ensure the safety of attendees participating in various events. "Drones are great for detecting problems, and they enhance communication between units," he said.

Officer John Kenny Sworn in

At the November Juno Beach Town Council Meeting, Chief of Police Brian Smith introduced the newest member of the Juno Beach Police - Officer John Kenny.

Originally from Bayville, Long Island, Officer Kenny comes to us from New York where he was a Sergeant in the busy 71st Precinct in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Part of Officer Kenny's NYPD time was also spent in a Special Weapons Task force where he and his team made multiple illegal gun arrests.

Officer Kenny, after being sworn in by Town Clerk Copeland, said that he looks forward to "Protecting and Serving" the wonderful people of Juno Beach and to a lengthy career with the Town and the Juno Beach Police Department.

The Police Foundation is pleased to welcome Officer John Kenny to the Juno Beach Police Department.

North County Boat Parade - December 4th

The beloved North County Holiday Boat Parade is scheduled for 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 4th, 2021. The event is expected to feature about 80 vessels decked out with thousands of twinkling holiday lights.

The parade will kick off in North Palm Beach and navigate northbound up the Intracoastal Waterway to the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse.

The boat parade will impact traffic in Juno Beach, as the Donald Ross bridge will be up (open) for about an hour between approximately 7:00 PM and 8:00 PM.

Spectators can watch the parade from all public parks along the parade route including the Bert Winters Park and Juno Park, both on Ellison Wilson Road.

Our Juno Beach Police Officers and Volunteers will be diverting and managing traffic flow on both Donald Ross Road and Ellison Wilson Road.

Police Foundation Annual Campaign

The Annual Campaign of the Juno Beach Police Foundation will begin on December 10th with a direct mail piece sent to all residents, business owners, and friends of the Police Foundation asking for their support.

Incorporated in 2018, the Foundation has, with the support of the community, purchased numerous important items for the Juno Beach Police Department to help improve both their efficiency and safety.

Among the items purchased were both a Beach Patrol truck and an all-terrain vehicle to help increase patrols on our fabulous beachfront; a street-legal golf car for patrols in the Ocean Drive, Pelican Lake, and surrounding neighborhoods; a Police Drone for aerial perspectives of events, protests, and traffic situations; a firearms simulator for Officer in-service training; life safety equipment for patrol vehicles... and much, much more.

With the continued support of our Juno Beach community the Police Foundation will continue in its efforts to "Help Ensure the Safety of Juno Beach"
