Since March 14, 2020, there has been a very unusual outbreak of crime in the residential area close to the west side of the Palmetto Golf Course. This includes at least four auto thefts, a home burglary, two car burglaries, and a case of vandalism.
Residents should be on special alert and call the police immediately if you see suspicious persons or activities. If you see a crime IN PROGRESS, call 9-1-1. For all other reporting, call 305-4-POLICE (305-476-5423).
Vehicle burglary and theft can be discouraged by keeping your vehicles locked at all times. DO NOT leave anything of value in your vehicle, particularly not in plain sight.
Whatever you do, make CERTAIN if you are a victim of a crime that you report it to the police. If you do not report a crime, as far as Miami-Dade County is concerned it did not occur. The quality of police patrols and crime prevention activities is highly dependent on getting accurate incident information.
