On behalf of Officer Michael Preshard, Officer Vallone Williams, and I, we would like to welcome you to the West District. A portion of our responsibilities within our assigned area are crime trends and quality of life issues. It is our goal and the mission of the Fort Myers Police Department to make a safe and secure community for all. We need your assistance to make this a success; only with a quality partnership can we achieve that objective. We have many partners within our District, from homeowners to residents of apartment complexes to businesses to schools – we are one team trying to make a better environment and most of all a vibrant community. We ask you to help by locking your doors and securing your valuables. Opportunity favors criminals; let’s not help them but deter them from our neighborhoods. We need your help and support in order to build on this achievement and to keep our neighborhoods crime free. Please let us know if we can help you in any way.
