Thank you for following the Winter Haven Police Department on social media! We welcome you to share your thoughts and feedback with us, and we ask that you please be responsible and courteous in your comments and replies. We reserve the right to hide/remove any comments or ban any users who violate our policy. Comments that contain obscene, indecent, or profane language; contain threats or defamatory statements; are bullying, intimidating, or harassing any user; contain personal attacks; contain hate speech; promote or endorse services or products; suggest or encourage illegal activity; are multiple, repetitive off-topic posts by a single user (spam); are not topically related to the particular posting; violate a legal ownership interest of any other party; or imbed links to other Internet sites may be hidden/removed. Users who violate this policy may be banned. We also do not allow the general public to share posts, websites, videos, or images on our page.

Our rules of decorum are in place to encourage civil discourse and to prevent a poster from disrupting dialog in a way that prevents or impedes the accomplishment of the purpose of our social media sites.  Our purpose is to convey important public safety information, increase our ability to quickly, effectively, and efficiently reach Winter Haven, Polk County and Central Florida residents to help us find criminal suspects, find missing and/or endangered persons, communicate public safety alerts, and further our mission of preventing, reducing, suppressing, displacing, solving, and fighting crime in Winter Haven and Polk County.
