If you see suspicious activity, report it to the West Palm Beach Police Department (WPBPD) at (561) 822-1900. “Suspicious Activity” includes: people walking up and down parked cars while looking into them or trying door handles, vehicles cruising our streets at very slow speeds for extended periods while observing parked cars; people doing any of the following: making any kind of mark or placing anything ON parked vehicles, sitting in running parked cars for protracted periods; and vehicles dropping one person off while continuing to cruise the same areas.


We’d prefer to check on an innocent citizen going about their business than to not check and end up taking a report about a theft from a vehicle. If you have questions concerning vehicle burglaries or other crimes, please contact our Crime Prevention Office at (561) 822-1620. Should you need to report an in-progress crime, please call 911. For non-emergency reports, please call (561) 622-1900. Don’t hesitate to call WPBPD to report ANY suspicious activities, people, or vehicles. WPBPD officer cannot be everywhere, and we count on good people to be our “eyes and ears” and to report suspicious activities as they are occurring. Do your part by taking preventive action and spreading the word. You can make a difference.


Please be alert and vigilant locking your vehicles and property. Carry your cell phone and preload the WPB Police Non-Emergency telephone number, 822-1900, to report suspicious behavior. Use 911 to report crimes in progress. Above all: Be Safe.

During the week leading up to a possible hurricane, please refrain (or ask your landscaper to refrain) from putting yard trash in the streets unless you receive a call from the Mayor that there will be additional yard waste pickups. Yard waste in the streets creates flying debris and can block the storm drains creating possible flooding.


To report an issue to the City, please call 561-822-2222.
