Biased Policing

Biased policing, or racial profiling, in traffic contacts, field contacts, and in asset seizure and forfeiture efforts is strictly prohibited.  Sworn officers shall actively enforce federal, state, county, and city laws and applicable department directives in a responsible and professional manner, without regard to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, economic status, age, or cultural group.  Officers may take into account the reported race or ethnicity of a specific suspect or suspects based upon trustworthy, locally relevant information that links a person or persons of a specific race or ethnicity to a particular unlawful incident.  Race and ethnicity may never be used as the sole basis for probable cause or reasonable suspicion."

Our History

The year is 1964, when the Town of Indian Shores was known as Indian Rocks Beach - South Shore. Both the Town and its citizens recognized the need for a Police Department, as did the neighboring Town of Redington Shores. Through their combined efforts, the Shores Police Department was formed.  Fast forward to today, The Indian "Shores" Police Department continues to serve the needs of the two Towns with honor and pride.

The slide show pictured above and below show the evolution of the Department since inception. We hope you enjoy and if anyone has photos from over the years they would like to share, please contact the Police Department at 727-595-5414.

Remember, you are part of our history!

Community Awareness Program:

The Indian Shores Police Department is starting a new initiative this year. We wish to reach out and build a better bond with the residents of our two communities, Indian Shores and Redington Shores, and let them know we are here for them. 

We plan to host classes covering a variety of public safety topics. These classes will run between 1 – 2 hours each and will be held in the Indian Shores Municipal Center, 19305 Gulf Blvd, Indian Shores, FL 33785.

We would like to hear from Council/Commission members and residents on topics of special interest that you would like to see covered. See us in person or contact Detective Alexandra Holt (727) 595-5414 with your ideas.
