District Safety Programs
The Broward Sheriff's Office, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea District, offers the following special services to our residents:
The C.A.T. (Combat Auto Theft) - is a remarkably effective way for citizens and law enforcement to work together to keep vehicle theft in check. When you register a vehicle with the C.A.T. program, a highly visible sticker is placed on the rear window of the vehicle. The sticker lets law enforcement know that your car or truck should not be on the road between 1:00 am and 5:00 am. It's a great way to help cut down on nighttime auto theft. For more information, contact the district office at (954) 640-4240.
Sheriff Israel's e-Alerts - We encourage you to stay informed by registering with Sheriff Israel's e-Alerts. You will receive email or test messages from us about criminal activity, BSO events and traffic concerns that affect your neighborhood. Visit the Sheriff Israel's e-Alerts page to register.
VACATION HOME CHECK - BSO offers residents in its jurisdictions a free Vacation Home Check program. Deputies will drive by unoccupied residences and perform a daily perimeter check for signs of break-in or suspicious activity.
To participate, call or stop by your district office and request a vacation home check form. You must provide the dates and times your home will be unoccupied with a contact phone number of a trusted neighbor or local relative. If you live outside a BSO jurisdiction, notify your local police department that you are leaving town and provide them with the dates you will be away and an emergency phone number.
RAD KIDS PROGRAM - RADKids (Resisting Aggression Defensively) BSO Deputies teach your children how to replace the fear, confusion and panic of a dangerous situation with confidence and personal safety skills. For further information, contact The Crime Prevention Unit at (954) 435-2000 extension 249.
