CHILD CAR SEAT SAFETY INSPECTIONS - Inspections are offered to help protect young passengers. A BSO representative will examine the car seat for proper installation and inspect the restraints for signs of wear and tear. For information on child car seat inspections, contact Reyna Varela at (954) 432-8905.

VACATION HOME CHECK - BSO offers residents in its jurisdictions a free Vacation Home Check program. Deputies will drive by unoccupied residences and perform a daily perimeter check for signs of break-in or suspicious activity. To participate, call or stop by your district office and request a vacation home check form. You must provide the dates and times your home will be unoccupied with a contact phone number of a trusted neighbor or local relative. If you live outside a BSO jurisdiction, notify your local police department that you are leaving town and provide them with the dates you will be away and an emergency phone number.

RAD KIDS PROGRAM (Resisting Aggression Defensively) - BSO deputies teach your children how to replace the fear, confusion and panic in a dangerous situation with confidence and personal safety skills. For further information, contact the Crime Prevention Unit at (954) 435-2000 extension 249.
