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.

Port St. Lucie Police Department Redesigned Obstacle Course Unveiling, with the help of area businesses
For Immediate Release: Port St. Lucie Police Department Redesigned Obstacle Course Unveiling, with the help of area businesses.
At the beginning of the year, the Port St. Lucie Police Department saw the need to rebuild the Obstacle Course that was originally constructed in 1986. Over the years, the obstacles became in serious need of repair and the course landscaping was very overgrown.
The Obstacle Course is used as a tool for part of the hiring process and also for the Career Ladder Program. In addition, the SWAT Unit did not have a place to train and had to travel and use courses that belonged to other agencies.
The Training Section of the Port St. Lucie Police Department, with the help of other City Departments, began working on a plan to complete the task of creating a new course. Several area businesses were very generous and donated supplies, tools and labor. After 6 months of work we were able to finish the new obstacle course. The new course will not only be used for evaluating officers during the hiring process, the Career Ladder Program, and SWAT, but the Explorers will be able to utilize it as well. The Port St Lucie Police Department Obstacle Course redesign would have not been possible without the help of officers, city employees and businesses.
The businesses alone donated $52,000.00 in materials, not including any labor cost.
You are invited to the unveiling on September 14, 2018 at 9:00 AM. City Officials and the businesses that were a part of this will be available as well. This is a great example of community partnership. Please join us at 526 SW South Macedo Blvd., Port St. Lucie.
