Safe in Surfside, Police Initiatives in Surfside

By: Surfside Aug 28, 2017

Get to Know the Local Police 

Want to get involved with the community? One great way to start is knowing who keeps Surfside safe. The Surfside Police department, as part of a community outreach program, is hosting two events this month to give Surfside residents and visitors a chance to get to know the local police. 

Bike with the Police Chief

The Surfside Police Department is offering interested individuals the opportunity to bike with our Chief of Police, Chief Allen. Rides begin at Town Hall at 5:00 pm and typically last 30 - 45 minutes. 
Chief Allen joined the Town of Surfside as Chief of Police in October 2006 after a long tenure in the Miami Beach Police Department. He has over 36 years of experience in law enforcement and has supervised units in Patrol, Traffic, Field Training and SWAT. 
Chief Allen’s vision is to continue building the Surfside Police Department into a leading law enforcement agency while providing the highest level of service to the community.
Participants will ride through the community with Chief Allen and his police staff. All ages are welcome.

Coffee with the Cops

If biking isn’t your thing, meet the Chief of Police and his staff for coffee at Starbucks! The Surfside Police Department’s community initiative with Starbucks - Coffee with the Cops takes place once a month on a Tuesday at 10:00 am. The purpose of the program is to allow for open discussion over coffee, to discuss community issues or provide feedback on the Police Department. Residents, business persons, and visitors are all welcome. 

Can’t make it this month? Bike with the Chief of Police and are monthly events, so check the town calendar for upcoming dates! For further information about Surfside’s Police Initiatives, please contact Dina Goldstein at 305-861-4862 or [email protected].
