Although we have not hosted Events to celebrate Florida Bike Month due to COVID-19 health concerns, our officers have been emphasizing bicycle safety this month while out on patrol. Thanks to a grant from FDOT West Central - Tampa Area, for example, Officers Beltran and Gibson were able to provide this cyclist with the necessary equipment required to operate a bicycle at night. Now, when he rides in the dark – he cycles to and from a local gym, getting in shape for a boxing match-- he can see and be seen safely. In our other picture, Ofc Marchione provided lights to another cyclist on Midnight Shift.
Remember, all Bicyclists: turn on your front white light and red tail light at night. Rear red reflectors are also required. Always wear a helmet, and obey all traffic signs, signals, and lane markings.

All our officers believe that by helping people follow these simple rules we can reduce bicyclist, pedestrian and vehicle injuries and crashes. Let's work together to make Kenneth City's roads safer for all. #communitypolicing #Bikesafety #relationalpolicing #AlertTodayFL Forward Pinellas Florida Bicycle Association

Today, March 17, is National Small Business Development Center Day and we thought it was a great day to celebrate all the hard work, successes and partnerships that small businesses have brought to Kenneth City. Pictured are just a few of the small businesses and the people who work so hard to keep them running --– and there are so many more!
Thank you to Officer Luis Diaz, CP Officer Beltran and Sgt Izrailov for visiting and checking on these businesses between calls and patrol. We are so proud of the partnerships we have formed with them.
More here: https://americassbdc.org/sbdcday/ -- SBDC is a great resource for #SmallBusiness owners: see what they’ve got to offer, Kenneth City!
Now more than ever is the time to support our local, independent businesses, which enhance our quality of life in so many ways.

Master Police Officer Jesse Madsen Funeral and Memorial Service

Today the funeral service was celebrated in honor of Tampa Police Department's Master Police Officer Jesse Madsen. Nothing can diminish his loss from his family, but we hope they felt the love and support from all who attended or watched the service, from the many who lined SR-54, and from those who have left messages of sympathy.

The men and women of the Kenneth City Police Department will never forget Jesse Madsen, his service, and his sacrifice.

Our Chief, Eli Vazquez, and two of our officers, Luis Diaz and Cody Farrington, were honored to attend the service, representing our Agency and the Town as a whole and participating in the vehicle procession.

Working smoke alarms save lives. Associate this Sunday's time change with your smoke alarm battery change and be prepared for emergencies. Daylight Savings Time begins Sunday March 14th at 2AM. We're posting this today so you have time to stop and purchase fresh batteries before Sunday.

#SpringForward with a #safetyplan: test your smoke alarms and change your alarm batteries this weekend and make sure you check the date on the back of your smoke alarm: if it is older than 10 years, the device should be replaced.
Our Water Management District, the Southwest Florida Water Management District, is also asking residents to check the timers on their irrigation system controllers to ensure that they are operating consistently with year-round water conservation measures. For additional information about water conservation, please visit the District’s website at https://www.swfwmd.state.fl.us/residents/water-conservation
