Q. I have had several phone calls from people representing themselves as police officers and asking for donations. Are these police officers and what is the money used for?
A. Gulf Breeze police officers do not solicit money for the department. Police officers never make solicitations over the telephone. There are some law enforcement-related agencies such as the Fraternal Order of Police that solicit donations, but they are not police officers nor does the money directly benefit local law enforcement. However, some of the money does help support the sponsorship of legislation concerning law enforcement.
If the organization is legitimate, they will give you this information and then you can decide whether you want to make a donation. It's also a good idea to ask for a financial statement or budget before making a decision about whether to donate to the organization.
Q. I received a call from a company claiming I had won a trip, but in order to claim my prize, I have to give them my bank account number, social security number, credit card number or some money. What should I do? Is this a scam?
A. The best rule of thumb is that if something sounds too good to be true, it is. And if you feel at all uneasy, there's probably a good reason for that. You should never have to divulge personal information to receive a prize. And it's always best to get information in writing, rather than over the telephone. If you do talk to someone on the phone, get their full name, the name of the company and phone number. Then you can call back to verify it is a legitimate company. If they won't give you a name and number, chances are it is not legitimate.
Q. I filed an affidavit for a misdemeanor crime with your department. I haven't heard from any officer. What is happening with my case?
A. All misdemeanor affidavits are immediately turned over to the State Attorney's Office. Prosecutors decide whether to prosecute or to ask officers to do more investigation. To follow up on the status of your case, please call the officer that initially handled your case or call the Investigations division at (850) 934-5122 between the hours of 8 A.M. - 4 P.M. Mon - Fri.
Q. Can you tell me if someone is in jail?
A. No. The Santa Rosa County Jail is run by the Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office. After we arrest someone, they are transported to the Santa Rosa County Jail. The Sheriff's Office is responsible for tracking information about that person. To find out if someone is in jail or the required bond amounts, call the jail at (850) 983-1142 or visit the Santa Rosa County Jail View.
Q. Can you tell me if I have a warrant for my arrest ?
