Bias Policing – the inappropriate consideration of specified characteristics while enforcing the law or providing police services. Specified characteristics includes, but is not limited to, race, ethnic background, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, socioeconomic status, age, disability, political status, or any other legally protected characteristics.
Gulf Breeze police officers do not solicit money for the department. Police officers never make solicitations over the telephone. There are some law enforcement-related agencies such as the Fraternal Order of Police that solicit donations, but they are not police officers nor does the money directly benefit local law enforcement. However, some of the money does help support the sponsorship of legislation concerning law enforcement.
If the organization is legitimate, they will give you this information and then you can decide whether you want to make a donation. It’s also a good idea to ask for a financial statement or budget before making a decision about whether to donate to the organization.
The best rule of thumb is that if something sounds too good to be true, it is. And if you feel at all uneasy, there’s probably a good reason for that. You should never have to divulge personal information to receive a prize. And it’s always best to get information in writing, rather than over the telephone. If you do talk to someone on the phone, get their full name, the name of the company and phone number. Then you can call back to verify it is a legitimate company. If they won’t give you a name and number, chances are it is not legitimate.

No. The Santa Rosa County Jail is run by the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office. After we arrest someone, they are held for a brief period of time and then transported to the Santa Rosa Jail. Once they are booked in the jail, the Sheriff’s Office is responsible for tracking information about that person. To find out if someone is in jail or what their bond is, call the jail at (850) 983-1142.
Before an officer can begin an investigation, you must successfully trace at least two of those calls and document the trace. Information about how to do this is printed in your telephone book or call your telephone company for help. After the traces, you must call the telephone company as well, before you can report it to police. When you do call the police department, we will have you fill out a misdemeanor affidavit, which then is sent to the State Attorney’s Office. Prosecutors there will decide whether to prosecute the case.
Caller ID is not the same thing as tracing a call. If you have a Caller ID box, you still must work with the telephone company to trace the call. Caller ID is not admissible in court.
