Join us in Central Park today at 3 p.m. for Winter Park Institute’s 10 Year Celebration Concert.
The City of Winter Park stands beside our Winter Park Police Department and shares their sentiments during this tragic time.
A Message from Chief Deal
I, along with all members of the Winter Park Police Department want to express our deepest condolences to the families of the victims ...at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. We are grieving with Parkland and with the entire Nation. We pray for the recovery of those injured, for the families of the seventeen victims and for the entire community.
In response to this tragedy, we have increased our presence in our schools and we will continue to offer active shooter training for our faith-based organizations and businesses.
We want to commend our colleagues in South Florida – all the first responders who responded to the horrific event and who continue to work tirelessly toward a successful prosecution of the shooter and assist in the healing of a community.
Lastly, we ask our community to remain vigilant – if you see something that does not look right, please say something. We will investigate. Call us or call your local law enforcement agency.
