Palm Beach County Sheriff Dept. &
JL POA Security
Working Together for Community Security
Last week, a number of indigent persons were observed by JLPOA Security Officers outside of our perimeter along the pond behind Publix. They refused to leave the area and Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office was called. However, because the individuals were not actually trespassing on JL property, the deputy stated there was nothing that he could do.
Director Keyes contacted the Sheriff’s Office District 3 Commander the following morning to discuss the issue. Immediately, the Commander put his Community Policing Team in action and they coordinated with Director Keyes to initiate an operation. In cooperation with JLPOA Security, Regency Management, and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, an operation by the PBSO Community Policing team is underway to remove the individuals to either a shelter or detention facility, depending upon the circumstances.
The Sheriff’s team and JLPOA Security will continue to cooperate in the operation with increased Security patrols and regular communication with each other.
