Winter Haven Police Department

The Winter Haven Police Department kicked off a Crime Prevention campaign that started Nov. 10, to bring awareness of preventing car burglaries by locking doors and keeping the passenger compartment clear. “Get Caught Preventing Crime” is a way for citizens to earn a $25 VISA gift card just for being mindful of locking vehicle doors and keeping valuables locked away. (A similar campaign in 2014 garnered a 17 percent reduction in vehicle burglaries over the same six-week period from the previous year. The Department did not conduct the campaign in 2015.)
