If you've noticed that maybe you haven't seen our vehicles in your area quite as often, this is due to our Volunteer Supervisor being out for a period of time. Don't worry, though - your streets are still being protected and patrolled frequently by officers with the department; however, there may be a reduction in frequency as we have less volunteers on the road at this time.

The Rockledge Police Department will soon be issuing body cameras to every patrol officer on the force. Body cameras offer a number of benefits to citizens of the community as well as the officers wearing them, as interactions are recorded accurately and overall accountability is improved.
Toy Donations for Needy Families
The Rockledge Police Department will be collecting toy donations for the Sharing Center to donate to needy families this holiday season. There will be a designated donation box in the police department lobby beginning November 3. The collection period will run through the first week in December. We are asking that only NEW, UNWRAPPED toys be donated. Last year, the Sharing Center donated toys to over 250 families with children, and we are on a mission to make an even greater impact this year by assisting in their collection efforts.
