POLICE WORK IN RIO VISTA AND LOOKING AT THE RECORDS

POLICE WORK IN RIO VISTA AND LOOKING AT THE RECORDS

SUBMITTED BY CHRISTINA CURRIE, ESQ.

15 MONTHS & 52 ARRESTS!! THANK YOU FLPD & PROTECT RIO VISTA!!

Recently I have witnessed and heard of some Rio Vista residents questioning the seriousness of the work the Protect Rio Vista Patrol/Fort Lauderdale Police officers are doing in our neighborhood. In an attempt to quantify the work FLPD does for our neighborhood I performed a public records request where I requested “a list of individuals who were arrested in Rio Vista in or arrested outside of our neighborhood from 8/24/2017 to 12/5/2018 where the arrest was stemming from "alleged criminal acts" that took place in Rio Vista”.

The result was 52 arrests in the past 15 months (as of 12/5/18). Here is a summary of the arrests, recognizing arrestees are innocent until proven guilty:

  • 11 arrests were for Driving Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol and 1 of those was a 2nd offense
  • 7 arrests were for Burglary Related Charges
  • 5 arrests were for Grand Theft of a Motor Vehicle or for Grand Theft $300 - $5,000
  • 12 of the 52 arrests were of a person 17 or under, the youngest being 13.
  • The month with the highest number of arrests was January 2018 with 7 arrests.
  • 2 arrests were for Domestic Violence Related charges
  • 15 of the 52 arrestees were Female

Notice of Hydrant Preventative Maintenance

 

The City of Fort Lauderdale is performing scheduled fire hydrant maintenance in the Rio Vista Neighborhood beginning May 13 and continuing through August 3, 2019 in the following area:

Boundaries:

Northern:      Sunrise Blvd

Southern:      State Rd 84

Eastern:         South Atlantic Blvd

Western:       South Federal Hwy

Properties in the area may experience a temporary drop in water pressure during testing of the fire hydrants and the water may become slightly discolored.  If you experience discolored water, you may wish to run water from one or more cold water faucets for a couple of minutes until the water is clear again and you may wish to do so prior to cooking, bathing or washing laundry. The discolored water is nonhazardous but can stain clothing. If your water does not clear within 24 hours, please contact City’s 24-Hour Neighbor Call Center at 954-828-8000.

Residents will have full access to their properties, while we perform this very important work.

Please sign-up for Code Red online at www.fortlauderdale.gov or contact the 24-Hour Neighbor Call Center at 954-828-8000.

Downtown EMS Station

EMS TruckFort Lauderdale Fire Rescue has visited several potential sites for an additional station in the downtown area. The focus of the search has been the Federal Highway corridor east of the railroad tracks between Davie Boulevard and Sunrise Boulevard. A station requires approximately 16,000 square feet of property, inclusive of two Bays, 7 Bunks, and associated living/working space. Better accessibility to areas both North and South of the tunnel are the goal in improving response times in the area.  Read the full report here:  pdfEast EMS Station
