Fort Walton Beach Lawyers Comment on Law Enforcement’s ‘2021 In Review’

Fort Walton Beach, Florida -

Fort Walton Beach, Florida based ASG Legal is sharing their comments on the Fort Walton Beach Police Department’s 2021 year-in-review. Throughout 2021, the ASG law firm and the Fort Walton Beach Police Department have continued their commitment to justice to the success of the community. It was a challenging year with the continuation of COVID-19 as well as the continued demands for police reform. Their professionalism and dedication to the community, combined with great teamwork, played an essential role in helping them accomplish their mission of making the community safer. They helped the justice system uphold the law to an even higher standard, and ASG Legal is proud of their progress.

The firm also calls attention to the Major Accomplishments of the Fort Walton Beach Police Department for the previous year. The local Police Department hosted a Kids Fishing Day, Star Wars Day, Rollin with 5.0 roller skating event and two Junior Police Academies. In addition to coordinating and participating in numerous small parades for birthdays or other special occasions, they engaged with a holiday parade around an assisted living facility for residents who could not have visitors. They also participated in the annual Billy Bowlegs Torchlight parade, in May, and the FWB Christmas parade. They are well loved figures in their community, a feeling which is reciprocated — as seen in their participation of several trunk-or-treat events with local community groups, National Faith, and Blue Weekend (in which police departments partnered with churches to conduct community outreach), the Brooks Street Community Halloween event and Wreaths Across America.

Apart from their strong sense of community, the Fort Walton Beach Police Department also excelled in their careers during 2021. They made several brave high-water rescues during localized flooding caused by summer storms, implemented a License Plate Reader (LPR) Program, and began to share and receive detections with other Florida agencies to assist with investigations of crimes. They also implemented a Rapid ID Fingerprint program for quicker verification of identities, implemented monthly dashboards that track overdose calls, Narcan deployments, arrests, and high crime hotspots.

The dedication of the law enforcement team to their responsibilities has ensured that lawyers and judges were able to do their duty to their communities to the highest standard as well. They also received the Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) grant, two Covid grants (Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding) and COPS the (Community Oriented Policing Services) grant. Two officers were further selected as subject matter experts to assist the Florida Department of Law Enforcement with developing statewide standards.
