Days after the two-year anniversary marking the death of DBPD Officer Christine Braswell in an off-duty crash with a drunk driver in Key West, Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones sentenced the driver who caused the crash to prison.  Lacy Morris, of Sugarloaf Key, pled no contest to DUI manslaughter, DUI with serious bodily injury, DUI with property damage and possession of marijuana.  The judge sentenced her to 10 years in prison, two years of community control and one year of probation.  Morris, who has been in jail since the April 2017 crash, will also permanently lose her license.  Multiple people, including Braswell’s parents and DBPD Officer Bernenda Marc, who was critically injured in the crash, made victim impact statements in the hour-long hearing Friday in Key West Courthouse. “Driving under the influence is deadly,” Marc said. “ It rips apart families, devastates friends and communities. You could have avoided this by calling a taxi or a friend, but on April 8 you chose differently.” #drivesober #drunkdrivingkills #918

Do giraffes like police officers? Lettuce know! 🥬 As part of the Kids-n-Cops program, three DBPD officers took Banyan Creek Elementary second-graders to Lion Country Safari this week for an educational day. They met pink flamingos, lumbering tortoises, a prickly porcupine and a fat Florida alligator keeping cool in a pond. Way to go, officers Clancy, Reid and Rackauskas! 🦒

It’s been more than 20 years since someone killed a 68-year-old woman working alone at a Delray Beach consignment shop. The killer left behind fingerprints and his blood, but detectives found no match...until December 2018. That’s when a Brandon man submitted his fingerprints for a new job. Todd Barket was arrested Wednesday morning at his home by FDLE and the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office on a DBPD arrest warrant for first-degree murder. Barket lived in Lantana at the time of Sondra Better’s murder.

Drinking on St. Patty's Day?  There will be lots of DBPD officers on duty. Arrange now for a safe ride home. A ride share service is much cheaper than a DUI, the consequences of which can last a lifetime, and the DUI conviction will stay on your driving record for 75 years. #NeverDriveImpaired #stpatricksday ⁠ #dontdrinkanddrive ⁠

(SOUND ON) The methods of most car burglars are not complex. They go from car to car, trying door handles until they find an open one. When they do, they steal whatever valuables they see. Sometimes, that’s a cell phone or charger, sometimes it’s a handgun or keys to that very vehicle. Crime stats tell the story: Of the 67 reported vehicle burglaries in February, 33 were to unlocked vehicles.
 Of the 18 reported auto thefts, 10 were left unlocked with their keys left inside.
There were 28 guns stolen from vehicles in 2018, and we are set to outpace that number this year. 
SOUND ON  Stay safe, Delray Beach!

Congratulations to DBPD Asst Chief Javaro Sims who has been selected to serve as the city’s 16th police chief. 
An officer with DBPD since 1992, Sims has risen steadily through the ranks, becoming one of the department’s two assistant chiefs in September 2014.  His term as chief will begin no later than May 15, 2019 upon the retirement of Police Chief Jeff Goldman.

City Manager Mark Lauzier chose Sims after a six-month period during which Sims and DBPD Asst. Chief Mary Olsen each had a turn to run the department as acting chief while Goldman served as acting assistant city manager. “The decision was difficult as I was evaluating two, very qualified and knowledgeable people with long, successful careers in law enforcement,” Lauzier said. “Over the past six months, I had the chance to observe them in their acting chief roles, assess their performance, hear from department members and listen to extensive community input. After this multifaceted review and interview process, I was impressed with Sims’ knowledge, training, background, community support and ongoing dedication to our City as well as his One Community vision for our City and the Police Department. I’m looking forward to working with Chief Sims and the entire department as we continue to lead the way.”
