"Good morning, I am a mother of two children, one a 9th grader and one a 6th grader. I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your support in these schools walk-outs. My son was part of the West Boca High walk-out and what he told me, and his friends was that because of your support, egging them on, protecting them throughout the walk, it gave them the strength to keep going, they felt like they matter, that what they feel and think matter. I know your department has your hands full and having hundred's of kids walking out can be a burden, but to us parents that see how scared they are, your support, your guidance, we thank you for being there, we thank you for protecting them. I have to thank you." - A Thankful Fan

What better way to protect children from being recruited by gangs than to bond with them. PBSO Community Policing Unit with the assistance of Legoland treated a group of students from South Grade Elementary School to LEGOLAND Florida. The fun trip is the reward well-deserved for participating in PBSO's Mentoring Program where children bond with deputies one a week. During this time, the deputies and students spend hours building LEGO and talking. We want to make sure we have a strong relationship with our youth from an early age.

Dear Troubled Friend;

We know that you have been dealing with a lot lately. We know that you may be having overwhelming feelings of depression, anger and heartbreak. Sometimes we find ourselves in a cloud of confusion and fog where we can’t clearly see the light and we lose ourselves in thoughts that are full of rage and revenge. But know this, you are loved. You are not alone. There is an answer and a place to find the cure to your pain. All you need to do is take one step.

...The last few days have been especially confusing for you, we know. Everywhere you look, the media is showing the face of a killer who acted selfishly and cowardly, the face of someone who didn’t seek help and because of it not only ruined the lives of many families, but also brought so much hurt and pain into the world. You are seeing videos of screaming High School students being terrified as the smoke of a discharging high-powered rifle billows into the classroom and all this attention to the wicked destruction from a troubled man has you thinking. Well don’t. Don’t think the answer to your pain is to share the pain with others. The answer, my friend, lies in the courage and strength to turn away from those thoughts. The answer lies in the courage to ask for help.

You don’t owe anything to anyone, just yourself. You owe yourself happiness and love. You deserve it. Take this moment to look at your phone and think, if you just dialed the number 2-1-1 and hit the send button, you could save not only your life, but the lives of so many around you. You could go into a church organization, talk to a counselor at school or even a loved one. Take that one step and in time you will wake up one morning and everything will be just fine. We guarantee that you’ll wake up in a better place, in a better time.

If you think you’re tired of living, thinking of giving in, well don’t. It’s not your time. Talk to us, we are your friend. Send us a message on our PBSO App and tell us anything you want. We are here for you always.

Your friends,
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office

Huge shout out to PBSO for their presence on our campus! Green and Gold keeping us safe. MANY MANY thanks. PBSO at its FINEST! 💚💛

PBSO Capt. Jack Strenges proudly served for 30 years as member of the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Department. Jack loved working for the PBSO because he genuinely cared about people and he wanted to help make a difference. He began his career with the PBSO as a Sheriff's Deputy and went on to achieve the rank of Captain of the Violent Crimes Division until finally retiring in August 2011.

Tragically, just six months after retiring Jack was diagnosed with the most deadliest fo...rm of brain cancer known as Glioblastoma. During the next two years Jack would go thru several brain surgeries, radiation, chemotherapy, and experimental treatments. Jack was determined to beat this disease. He never gave up fighting and was incredibly brave. Unfortunately, Jack lost his battle on February 21, 2014 with his family and friends by his side. He is loved and deeply missed by all who had the pleasure to know him.

Come out on February 25th at John Prince Park to honor Jacks memory at the Annual Florida Brain Cancer 5k Run.

Thank you and I hope to see you at the walk on Sunday, February 25th!

I am feeling so blessed and thankful to have such wonderful people serving our community. I was driving home had just got on the Turnpike North bound from Okeec...hobee Blvd as I always do and all of a sudden a large gray object went flying towards my car. It looks to have been on the ground and another car ran over it and hit the front right side of my bumper and popped my right front tire. I pulled over immediately, a little shaken but safe. I didn’t have a Jack and my tire lock is a little bit of a pain, it requires a lot of strength to get those tires off. I was stuck one hour way from home.. all of a sudden someone pulled behind me, and walked towards me asking me if I needed help. Uummm yes please I said. It was a real life Hero, knight in shining armor, gift from God.. I can go on.... it was Officer Soler. He was so eager to help me. Officer Soler took his tools and changed my tire with my spare. I don’t know how long I would have been out there if it weren’t from him. I learned he also commutes from PSL to WPB everyday. I really appreciate Officer Soler helping me when I needed it. He was off duty on his way home and stopped to help. So happy to have Officers like him. Thank you Officer Soler!!!#PBSO #Hero #everydayHero #Blessed
