Chief's Corner: Melanie Bevan, BPD


Bradenton students return to the classroom on Thursday, August 10! BPD will conduct high-visibility traffic enforcement operations before and after school during the first several days of classes.

Warnings and citations will be handed out to drivers who exceed the posted speed limit or park in no-parking zones. Officers will also be on the lookout for drivers using any electronic device while behind the wheel and seatbelt use.

Drivers, front passengers, and minors must wear seat belts, and younger children must be in a child seat. We ask all drivers to have patience with the increased traffic volume during the morning and afternoon.

Have a great school year!

    Sure thing.

    However your department should treat criminal complaints in a respectful lawful manner. Currently your agency is hiding a criminal complaint regarding the mayor and council. It should be at the State Attorney's office Mr.Ed Brodsky. We're the hell is it? It was filed in early March. You and your department are in violation of your oath to serve and protect. The Florida Open Meetings laws were violated. Do your job. Uphold the law! BPD is violating it! Last warning.
