Cape Coral is the safest city in the state of Florida for violent crime, and we want to keep it that way. For that, we need the public's help as always. We may live in a bedroom community rather than a metropolitan hub, but when it comes to acts of terror or violence it pays to be vigilant, observant, and aware.
The Cape Coral Police Department urges everyone that if you see something, say something. Oftentimes people think they are being a bother, or that what they are seeing isn't really of concern. It is easy to make a phone call and let us make sure that it isn't a concern; better to be safe than sorry. Please say something if you observe, especially around major events or facilities:
* Suspicious persons* Suspicious lines of questioning, probing for information* Surveillance (photo/video recording, maps, notetaking* Acquiring or stockpiling supplies of a suspicious nature* Suspicious vehicles or packages
Don't attempt to approach any of these persons or circumstances yourself. Keep yourself safe, try to keep others away from the possible perceived threat, and call authorities using 911.
Our citizens are our greatest asset, our eyes and ears out and about in our wonderful city. If you see something, say something, and help us keep it that way.
To report suspicious activity, you can call 855-FLA-SAFE (855-352-7233), or the Cape Coral Police Department at 911 or 239-574-3223.
