Flagler Beach Police Department http://www.fbpd.org Mon, 16 Nov 2015 13:07:08 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Toys for Tickets Program http://www.fbpd.org/2015/11/toys-for-tickets-program/ http://www.fbpd.org/2015/11/toys-for-tickets-program/#comments Mon, 16 Nov 2015 13:07:08 +0000 http://www.fbpd.org/?p=822 The Flagler Beach Police Department is proud to announce a new initiative for the 2015 holiday season. Citizens who receive a warning citation for a traffic or parking offense will have the opportunity to donate a toy to “Christmas Come True” in lieu of paying a fine.

Christmas Come True” is a non-profit organization based in Flagler Beach, whose mission is “to provide a complete Christmas experience for area resident parents who are unable to financially afford a traditional Christmas for their families.

Beginning Monday, November 16, 2015 and continuing through Friday, December 11, 2015, Flagler Beach Police Department Officers, at their discretion, will be issuing “toy waivers” along with warning citations for non-criminal State traffic and/or City parking offenses. The “toy waiver” allows the motorist to donate a new, unwrapped toy to “Christmas Come True” instead of having to face a potential civil fine.

Motorists who choose to participate will be instructed to drop off a new, unwrapped toy Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at:

Flagler Beach Police Department 204 South Flagler Avenue Flagler Beach, FL 32136

“This program allows our Officers the opportunity to educate the motorist about the law and at the same time make a difference during the holidays,” stated Flagler Beach Police Captain Matt Doughney. “Traffic and parking fines can be expensive. Donating a toy helps both a family in need and the motorist’s family.  This is community policing at its finest.”

For additional information regarding this new program, please contact Captain Doughney at (386) 517-2024.   For information regarding “Christmas Come True” please contact Ms. Nadine King at (386) 569-4429 or you can access their website at the following link; http://christmascometrue.org/

Free Citizen Property Inventory System – “Report It” http://www.fbpd.org/2015/11/free-citizen-property-inventory-system-report-it/ http://www.fbpd.org/2015/11/free-citizen-property-inventory-system-report-it/#comments Fri, 06 Nov 2015 12:05:05 +0000 http://www.fbpd.org/?p=800 report-itThe Flagler Beach Police Department is proud to introduce Report It, a free, proactive tracking tool that provides citizens an easy way to catalog their valuables.

What is “Report It”?   It’s a proactive on-line tool for recording information about your valuables in advance of a possible loss through theft, fire, flood, or other unforeseen event. Flagler Beach residents can input property information such as serial numbers, owner-applied numbers, photographs, and scans of receipts. It’s completely internet based, so you never have to worry about losing the data.

How much does “Report It” cost? This is a free service available to residents through the Flagler Beach Police Department and its partnership with “Leads Online.” Each account can store up to one-hundred (100) items. If additional storage is needed, please email citizen@leadsonline.com. Corporate and small business accounts are available upon request.

Why should I use “Report It”? Nobody expects to be the victim of property crime or a natural disaster. But if it does happen, you’ll be able to provide an inventory of your valuables to the Police for identification, and to your insurance provider to file a claim.

What type of property should I keep track of in “Report It”? Anything of value, such as collectibles, jewelry, electronics, machinery, lawn equipment, and even designer clothes and handbags.

Is “Report It” secure? Your information is accessed by your chosen user name and password, and is protected via a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) network connection, the same type of connection used to access your bank account. “Report It” is protected by the same high-level security measures used by financial institutions and government agencies.

Are the Police able to search the information stored in “Report It”? No. Your information can only be accessed by you using your username and password. If the need arises, you can print your entry from any computer with internet access and share it with Law Enforcement.

“This is a win-win for our community and the Department,” said Police Captain Matt Doughney. “Our partnership with “Leads Online” since 2014 has been extremely valuable in our efforts to combat crime in Flagler Beach. The “Report It” program is free, provides our citizens with an effective tool to document their valuables, and should they become a victim of theft or burglary, it enhances our ability to solve the case and return the property to its rightful owner.”

Prescription Drug Take Back Day http://www.fbpd.org/2015/09/prescription-drug-take-back-day-2/ http://www.fbpd.org/2015/09/prescription-drug-take-back-day-2/#comments Tue, 01 Sep 2015 16:33:19 +0000 http://www.fbpd.org/?p=766 got-drugs

The front lobby of the Flagler Beach Police Department will be open on Saturday, September 26, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in support of “National Prescription Drug Take Back Day”. The Police Department is located at 204 South Flagler Avenue, one (1) block south of SR100 on the east side of the Moody/SR100 Bridge.

This one (1) day event will provide residents and/or visitors with a no cost, anonymous collection of unwanted and/or expired medicines and this initiative is a collaboration between your local Police Department and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). On April 26th of this year a total of ninety-nine (99) pounds of prescription drugs were received at the Flagler Beach Police Department and turned over to DEA for destruction.

Please help protect our children, families and environment by cleaning out your medicine cabinets and properly disposing of your unwanted and/or expired medicines. Medicines in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisoning and flushed or trashed medicines can end up polluting our water sources. Rates of prescription drug abuse are alarmingly high; over half of teens abusing medicines get them from a family member or friend, including the home medicine cabinet, and often without their knowledge.

If you have any questions about National “Prescription Drug Take Back Day”, please feel free to contact Captain Doughney or any member of the Flagler Beach Police Department.

Flagler Beach Police Captain and 7-ELEVEN host “Doughnuts with Doughney” http://www.fbpd.org/2015/09/flagler-beach-police-captain-and-7-eleven-host-doughnuts-with-doughney/ http://www.fbpd.org/2015/09/flagler-beach-police-captain-and-7-eleven-host-doughnuts-with-doughney/#comments Tue, 01 Sep 2015 16:14:46 +0000 http://www.fbpd.org/?p=762 doughnut

The Flagler Beach Police Department and our local 7-ELEVEN have partnered to host “Doughnuts with Doughney” on Monday, September 21, 2015 from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. The Flagler Beach 7-ELEVEN convenience store is located at 408 South Oceanshore Boulevard.

“Doughnuts with Doughney” is similar to “Coffee with a Cop” in that it provides the public an opportunity to meet and speak openly with Captain Doughney about issues and/or concerns in Flagler Beach. The location of the meeting provides citizens easy access to both the 7-ELEVEN off SRA1A and Captain Doughney, in a relaxed, non-threatening atmosphere.

Mr. Eric Cooley, owner of the 7-ELEVEN, proposed the idea of doughnuts to Captain Doughney because of the obvious pun. “When your last name is spell checked and the first option is “doughnut” and you’re a cop, you better have a sense of humor,” Doughney joked.

Additional members of the Police Department will be on hand, and plans are to hold this event every two (2) to three (3) months.

Should you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Captain Doughney at the number above.

The suspect, Christopher John Dugent Jr., 20, of Flagler Beach, is currently in custody in the Flagler County Inmate Facility on Burglary and Grand Theft charges stemming from the August 9, 2015 Burglary.

“I’m extremely proud of the effort put in by everyone involved in this case ’” said Flagler Beach Police Captain Matt Doughney. “The suspect committed the Burglary early Sunday morning and by late Monday night he’s been located, interviewed and arrested for his crime by our Officers. I think that’s great Police work”.

“The suspect in this case hid inside the business and waited until well after the store closed to rummage through the business” Doughney said.

Dugent Jr. is being held at the Flagler Inmate Facility on $5,000 bond. Doughney said that “The video surveillance inside the business was extremely helpful in our ability to solve this case. Kudos to the business for investing in a quality system”.

Doughney said that “the efforts of the analysts from the Northeast Florida Fusion Center was paramount to this case coming to a successful conclusion.”

“Captain Jones from Charlton County (Sheriff’s Office), Georgia contacted our agency and advised that he’d seen our bulletin and believed that our suspect was in custody in Ware County” Doughney said. “The investigation progressed after hearing from Captain Jones and we’re thankful to all of our Law Enforcement partners for helping us with this case.”
