April Crime Stats Show Big Improvements in the Village

April Crime Stats Show Big Improvements in the Village.Crime is on the way down in Palmetto Bay, and a new, traffic enforcement initiative is in full effect. That was the good news from Palmetto Bay Police Commander Gady Serralta at the May 7,2018 council meeting at Village Hall. 


According to police records, there were 2 home burglaries in Palmetto Bay in April 2018, bringing this year's total thus far to 12. That compares to 33 for the same period last year, marking a 64% reduction. 



Vehicle burglaries are also down; 12 reported last month, bringing this year's total so far to 52, compared with 91 for the same time in 2017. That's a decrease of 32%. 



In an effort to bolster traffic safety, the Palmetto Bay "C.I.T.E." (Comprehensive Improvised Traffic Enforcement) initiative was introduced in April, allowing additional policing to monitor speeding and stop sign running. As a direct result of "C.I.T.E.", 315 citations were issued in April, 2018. Police were posted at unknown trouble spots for speeding and other violations. 



811 additional tickets were issued during routine patrols; that's a total of 1126 in one month. With this in mind, the Village reminds everyone to drive responsibly. As always, safety is our top priority. Thank you!
