June is National Safety Month 

With the dismissal of school for the summer, it’s important to go over the following safety tips:

Pool Safety – 
  • Don’t leave children and non-swimmers alone near a pool.
  • Assign one person to supervise when in a pool.  Flotation devices are not a catch all. 
  • Please ensure there aren’t any holes or fraying to the sides of the pool fence that would enable a small child to pass through. 
  • Please make sure the locks surrounding patio doors and fences are working and are in use when not around the pool in order to prevent accidental drownings. 
  • Post CPR instructions around the pool area.  Take a CPR course.

Gun Safety – 

This month, in recognition of National Safety Month, I challenged our Youth Ambassadors' to create a statement regarding gun safety. 

Their response "You can take back words but you can't take back bullets" is more than accurate.  
Part of gun ownership is the responsibility of making sure your weapon is secure.

In 2015, the number of firearms stolen in the City of Hollywood was equally represented between residential and automobile burglaries. 

Do your part to reduce gun violence in our country by securing your weapon whether in your home or while traveling.  

Your weapons can still be accessible to you but not to others.  There are biometric gun safes available to secure your weapon.  

At Hollywood Police Department events, we have standard gun locks available.  Please ask about them at our next event!
