Message From The Chief

Mark your Calendars!  Please join me and other members of your Wilton Manors Police Department and your City Commissioners at our next National Night Out Against Crime which will be held on Tuesday, August 2, 2016 at various neighborhood locations throughout the city.  Please check our Wilton Manors Police Department website for details: We look forward to meeting all of you, your families, your friends and your neighbors as we celebrate this event which brings together the very best of our community!


The above phrase is the very essence of Night Out Against Crime as it gets us out of the house and into the neighborhood to meet our neighbors, all banding together to make Wilton Manors a great community!


Each year the FBI & FDLE work with local law enforcement to produce the Uniform CrimeFBI UCR Report which tracks the seven Part I crimes (Homicide, Sexual Assault, Robbery, Burglary, Larceny, Auto Theft & Aggravated Assault). GOOD NEWS:  Wilton Manors experienced a significant decrease in the crime rate in 2015 when compared with 2014 – (-15.4%)!!  2015 was the lowest crime rate for Wilton Manors in over 20 years!  BAD NEWS:  we experienced an increase in residential burglaries (111 in 2015 vs. 97 in 2014; note: 2014 represented the lowest number of residential burglaries in over 20 years).  Two highlights in this 2015 report were: Wilton Manors had a 24% decrease in the number of larcenies in 2015 and a 40% decrease in larcenies from an automobile. Please visit the site for a complete report of these crime statistics which go as far back as 2000.  This good news is a direct result of our partnership with you, the citizens of Wilton Manors! Fighting crime truly is a partnership between the police and the community.  WMPD is proud of our 2015 achievements, but we understand we have more work to do.

In our budget for FY 2015 – 16, the City Commission had the wisdom and vision to dedicate additional funds to hire two additional police officers.  One position for additional traffic enforcement and one position to be dedicated to our newly created SET Team (selective enforcement team).   This SET Team will be experienced police officers working in plain clothes and in unmarked cars.  They will be dedicated to addressing current crime trends in a nimble and flexible fashion.  Their #1 priority will be to combat residential burglaries.  Needless to say WMPD has work to do but we are going in the right direction…in partnership with our community. 

As always, the Wilton Manors Police Department is at your service day or night, 24/7.  Feel free to visit us at City Hall, 2020 Wilton Drive, Monday through Friday, 7am – 10pm and Saturday 10am – 5pm.
