To assist in protecting Flagler County residents from holiday burglars, the Bunnell Police Department, Flagler Beach Police Department, and Flagler County Sheriff’s Office have joined forces. Residents will be able to dispose of their holiday boxes in a dumpster provided by Waste Pro. Thieves are less likely to know what expensive gifts your family received over the holidays if there are fewer large boxes on the side of the road for trash pickup. Through this initiative, we can reduce residential theft and burglary by working with residents.
“We hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable holiday! Please feel free to drop off large boxes at our department this holiday season in order to avoid Grinches; Flagler Beach Police Chief Matt Doughney stated, “so those mean Grinches don’t know what presents have been dropped off at your Whoville address.”
“Don’t give a Grinch a reason to steal your Christmas if he comes by your house. Put your marked gift boxes in the free bin in Bunnell behind the historic Coquina City Hall to join us. Also, report any suspicious activity to dispatch right away to help us quickly catch anyone auditioning for the Grinch this season. This time of year will continue to be joyful and bright if you collaborate with us,” stated Bunnell Police Chief Dave Brannon.
“Grinch-proof your Christmas by allowing us to take care of your large cardboard boxes this holiday season,” Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly reminds residents. Flagler County’s law enforcement agencies are dedicated to safeguarding our residents’ hard-earned possessions. We are grateful to Waste Pro, FBPD, and BPD for working with us this year!
