We believe in the power of personal connections and the positive change that can be achieved through those relationships. To be truly successful in this endeavor, we know we must strive to do more than simply protect and serve. We are dedicated to remaining actively involved in our communities and engaging and partnering with civic groups and individual citizens to achieve our shared vision of a safer and better Fort Lauderdale for all.
