Most arrests this week in the city were for suspended drivers license or shoplifting. Gutshall notes Code Enforcement is down in numbers significantly this week. The enforcement department assistance was critical in a major, ongoing criminal investigation with CID, he said. "This is no indication of a lessened resolve to Code Enforcement, but rather a necessary blip that will happen from time to time."
Gutshall says, "The relationship our Animal Control Officers have fostered with Doctor Martin out of Jupiter has continued to work well. We are grateful for their generosity and assistance. I should offer thanks to Cathy Irey as well. She is vastly unrecognized. Kathy continues to put in several hours of volunteer work daily at the facility as she has for several years."
A synopsis of the week’s police department activity: 1299 Commercial / Residential Security Checks, 614 Complaints Investigated. 23 Arrests Made, 15 Traffic Citations Issued, 35 Red Light Camera Violations, 22 City Ordinance / Code Violations, 60 Merchant Escorts, 15 Alarm Responses, and 5 Traffic Accidents Investigated.
