Patrol Logs

PRV SIGN 225x225




The Protect Rio Vista program utilizes your subscription funds to hire off-duty Fort Lauderdale police officers to patrol in the neighborhood.  The officers are in uniform when on duty and have full authority to take official action action should a crime take place while on patrol.  The officers patrol in a marked car leased by the civic association and will be dispatched by FLPD for any 911 call recieved from the neighborhood.  Members also recieve a cell phone number by which they may contact the patrol officers directly while they are on duty.  Members also recieve the opportunity to request a vacation check of their home when they are out of town.

0630- Patrolled business district along S. fed and Rio mainland in search of S-86 activity as notated in above log

0700- Began and completed the out of town checks, all appear to be secure.,

0750- I received a c all from resident who wanted to advise us that her vehicle had been rummaged through overnight, she stated that her son used the vehicle and most likely left it unlocked. The loss was approximately $15USD and the vehicle owners manualShe does not want to file a report  Additionally as I did a drive by I made contact stepping out to walk the dog,  at this point we engaged in conversation and discussed last incident approximately 1.5 years ago when she had bikes stolen off her front porch (later recovered) and placed into evidence. She was displeased after continuously trying to reach the evidence unit and the assigned detective to get her bikes back, but never got a return call and gave up hope of ever getting her property back. I will make contact with evidence to check into this matter and advise. It should be noted that she spoke highly of FLPD and the Rio patrol, but felt pushed off to the side being that it wasn’t the crime of the century.

0815- After speaking with above I decided to check on the home being constructed at the 600 block of 6St. That site was vacant. As I was exiting the site I made contact who called in the original complaint of a S-86 male shacking up inside. I then pointed out that we have been having some S-86 staying across Federal highway in the 3 vacant small structures, even from where we were we were able to see a sleeping bag on the front porch of the most easterly structure. She stated her cousin owns the 3 properties. I decided to go over and check the 3 structures and came across a small campsite in the most westerly structure car port. At this time all was vacant, but it is obvious someone is residing in the tent. Once I returned to Rio I advised her of my findings and she will advise her cousin to get trespass affidavits on file.
