Report Suspicious Activity
If you see suspicious activity, report it to the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office (PBSO) at (561) 688-5447. “Suspicious Activity” includes: people walking up and down parked cars while looking into them or trying door handles, vehicles cruising our streets at very slow speeds for extended periods while observing parked cars; people doing any of the following: making any kind of mark or placing anything ON parked vehicles, sitting in running parked cars for protracted periods; and vehicles dropping one person off while continuing to cruise the same areas.
We’d prefer to check on an innocent citizen going about their business than to not check and end up taking a report about a theft from a vehicle. If you have questions concerning vehicle burglaries or other crimes, please see PBSO’s Crime Prevention FAQ page. Should you need to report an in-progress crime, please call 911. For non-emergency reports, please call (561) 688-5447. Don’t hesitate to call PBSO to report ANY suspicious activities, people, or vehicles. PBSO deputies cannot be everywhere, and we count on good people to be our “eyes and ears” and to report suspicious activities as they are occurring. Do your part by taking preventive action and spreading the word. You can make a difference.
Please be alert and vigilant by locking your vehicles and property. Carry your cell phone and preload the PBSO Non-Emergency telephone number, (561) 688-5447, to report suspicious behavior. Use 911 to report crimes in progress. Above all: Be Safe.
If you find one of the street lights out, note the location and nearest address, and contact the Property Manager by visiting our Contact Us page.
