Our Police Officers Need Your Support Now More Than Ever
By Thomas F. Murphy, President, Juno Beach Police Foundation
The members of our Juno Beach Police Department protect our community, our children, our grand-children, and our families. Law enforcement is not an easy profession. Our officers ensure that our community is a safe place to live and work.
FOUNDATION PURCHASES NEW BEACH PATROL VEHICLE
As reported in last month's Newsletter, Chief Smith and his team were evaluating different manufacturers and different configurations for a new four-wheel drive, all-terrain vehicle for use on the beach and in the natural areas of Juno Beach.
JUNO BEACH POLICE WIN TRAFFIC SAFETY CHALLENGE
Our Juno Beach Police Department has been invited to Orlando as a recipient of a traffic safety award at the 2020 Traffic Safety and Awards Conference.
The Traffic Safety Challenge, under the auspices of the Florida Department of Transportation, recognizes the best overall traffic safety programs within the State of Florida. Areas of concentration include efforts to enforce traffic safety laws and educate the public about distracted and impaired driving, motorcycle safety, occupant protection and child passenger safety, pedestrian and bicycle safety, speed and aggressive driving, and other area issues that impact the safety of roadway users.
The two day event includes specialized traffic safety training seminars, breakout sessions and equipment displays. It concludes with an awards ceremony where the Juno Beach Police, in addition to several other Florida Law Enforcement agencies, will be recognized for their traffic safety enforcement activities during the prior year. Congratulations Juno Beach Police Department!
COFFEE WITH A COP - HOPEFUL FOR AUGUST
Unfortunately, the ever popular “Coffee With A Cop” program that has taken place on the first Wednesday of every month continues to be temporarily halted. The monthly event, sponsored by the Town of Juno Beach, will hopefully resume in the near future.
The event typically brings out a large crowd of residents, business owners and interested parties to meet Chief of Police Brian Smith and many of his officers. The Chief updates the participants on recent crime statistics as well as areas of concern. He then answers any questions that the attendees may have. We hope to see this program restart in the not too distant future.
MINISTRY VISITS JUNO BEACH POLICE DEPARTMENT
A group of women representing the local community visited our Juno Beach Police Department on Friday, June 20th to show their support of the men and women of the agency during these turbulent times.
Holding virtual hands, the women from Christ Fellowship, Chief Brian Smith, Major Paul Fertig, Administrative Coordinator Alyssa Grammatico and Foundation President Tom Murphy said a short prayer asking God to protect all Police personnel in their efforts to watch over and protect our communities.

The women are visiting several other Police agencies throughout Palm Beach County to show their graditude for Police Officers and the Officer's families. They hope to spread their ministry to Martin, Broward, and Miami-Dade as a way of encouraging others to show their gratitude for law enforcement.
