18th Annual Police Academy
The Surfside Police Department is proud to celebrate its 18th Citizens Police Academy (2019). Many of the Town’s residents are graduates and/or alumni of this program!
New Police Chief
As of January 2023, John Healy is the new Police Chief for the Town of Surfside. Have you had a chance to meet Chief Healy around Town or at the monthly Bike with the Chief of Police and Coffee with the Cops? Make sure to check the Town calendar for the next Police events!
Business District Officer + Neighborhood Resource Officer
Effective October 21, 2019, Surfside will have a Business District and Neighborhood Resource Officer. The officer is responsible for patrolling the neighborhoods and downtown business district, as well as being on-site at community events.
Curious to know how many permits were issued by the Surfside Building Department in FY 2018? That would be a total of 1,455 permits for residential and commercial construction. The Building Department also performed over 3,000 inspections in FY 2018 (October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2018.) This goes to show a lot is happening in Town. Pretty amazing, right?
Did you know the Surfside Parks and Recreation Department goes far beyond encouraging you to check out the Town’s parks? They also host exciting events, including a Movie Series, Holiday celebrations, swimming classes and adult, senior and youth programs.
