JULY 2023


One of the most common calls Pasco Sheriff’s Office receives are thefts from vehicles. It’s important to be aware of the potential dangers leaving vehicles unsecured create. You are the first line of prevention. Theft is often committed when potential criminals have the desire, opportunity and ability. Taking away even one of the three opportunities of crime can decrease the chance of becoming a victim. Follow the 9 p.m. routine by locking your doors and taking valuables out of your car. Stay safe Pasco!

July is vehicle theft prevention month. It’s important for citizens to know how to prevent yourself from becoming a victim of this crime of opportunity. The 9 p.m. Routine is a great daily reminder to make sure that you’ve removed any valuables left in your car and that all doors are locked before heading to bed each night. Taking the time to protect your car and valuables can remove the opportunity for criminals and prevent you from becoming a victim of a car burglary.

Harvesting Florida’s Bay scallops during scalloping season is a fun and potentially rewarding summer activity enjoyed in Pasco County’s waterways. During scallop season snorkelers go below the water’s surface hoping to spot scallops as they flutter through the shallow seagrass. Before diving in, it is important to know and follow regulations, vessel requirements and daily catch limits. Pasco Sheriff’s Office is sharing tips to keep snorkelers and boaters safe this scallop season.


Pasco Sheriff’s deputies are always prepared to assist whenever – and wherever – they’re needed. A corporal in the District 1 area recently responded to the Wawa at SR 52 and Little Rd. to help a kitten that was trapped in a sewer for at least a day. Wawa employees provided the corporal and a citizen with hazmat suits so they could successfully rescue the kitten from the sewer.

Employees at the Wawa report that the kitten is doing well with his new family. We’re thankful for this corporal’s quick action in assisting the kitten, and to the Wawa employees who sent in this photo of the corporal, post-rescue!
