On February 22, 2018, our agency hosted our 5th Annual Bay Harbor Islands Awards Banquet, honoring members of the Department for acts of heroism and superior policing efforts, as well as members of the community.  This event was a tremendous morale boost to the entire Department and was well supported by the Council and Town Administration.  

We congratulate Officer Alan Castellanos for being named “Officer of the Year” for 2017.  He has brought great credit to our agency, providing a tremendous level of law enforcement service to this community.  Officer Alan Castellanos' hard work is consistent with the BHIPD motto of “Pursuing Excellence.”
