Welcome and thank you for visiting the Highland Beach Police Department website!
The Highland Beach Police Department is staffed by 15 full-time law enforcement personnel and 3 reserve Police Officers that operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with at least three personnel per shift.
The Police Department operates under a community policing concept, and its primary function is to serve and protect the residents of the Town of Highland Beach, their guests, and their families.
Most of the calls responded to are medical or alarm-related, as the Town has an extremely low crime rate. The Police Department is responsible for enforcing all state, county, and local laws and ordinances.
All staff members are required to follow state guidelines for retraining and re-certification. The Town supports its officers who seek to further their own individual criminal justice backgrounds through education.
In addition to patrol vehicles, the Highland Beach Police Department utilizes bicycles as well as a new all terrain beach patrol vehicle to patrol the 3 miles of beach in the Town.
