Port St. Lucie Police Department urges everyone to report crime when you see them, instead of posting them on social media.
The PSL PD is taking the necessary precautions to protect first responders and ensure continued emergency response services as this situation evolves. As this develops, don’t be surprised to see police officers and other City employees wearing personal protective equipment. If you are in need of services at your residence and call the City or 911, please advise us if someone in your household is sick or not feeling well so that the responding personnel can take the appropriate protective measures. PSL PD has suspended all fingerprinting to the public until further notice.
Temporary closing of Unwanted Prescriptions/Medications Drop Box:
The Port St. Lucie Police Department has a drop box for medications that citizens can utilize to dispose of unwanted prescriptions/medications. Due to the temporary suspension of in-person services to the public within the department’s lobby, please know that the Port St. Lucie Police Department is postponing the program until further notice.
Please do not trap stray cats or pick up kittens without having a plan and an appointment with a shelter or rescue. Some vets have reduced their hours and getting appointments for spay/neuters may become more difficult. Anyone who finds cats or kittens should leave them alone unless they are injured or in serious danger. Many shelters and rescues are closed to the general public and are doing intake and adoptions by appointment only.
