DBPD Police Officer Thomas Coulter
It is with great sadness that we share some tragic news. Last Friday during physical training exercises, one of our newly hired officers experienced a medical issue. Officer Thomas Coulter, 25, appeared pale with his lips turning purple. The drill was stopped and medical assistance was administered. Officer Coulter was responsive and answered questions as medical assistance arrived. He was transported to Halifax Medical Center for treatment by EVAC. Early Monday morning, Officer Coulter passed away while at Halifax Medical Center with his family by his side. At this time, our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.

Don't be a victim! Hide it, Lock it, or Lose it!
The #1 reason for vehicle break-ins is unlocked cars! Would be thieves search
for an easy target until they find one. Vehicles left unlocked with valuables in plain sight are an open invitation to criminals. Please do your part and remember to always lock your vehicles, even if you-re parking in front of your homes or businesses for just a few minutes.

File an online police report for non-emergencies

Often times minor crimes go unreported because people don't want to bother the police or don't have the time to go through the traditional process of filing a police report. As a courtesy and convenience to our citizens, minor theft, lost property, vandalism, etc. can be reported online, 24 hours a day.

PREA (Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003)
Congress enacted the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (PREA) to address the problem of sexual abuse of persons in the custody of U.S. correctional agencies. PREA calls for federal, state and local corrections systems to have a zero-tolerance policy regarding prison rape (as defined by PREA) in prisons, jails, police lock-ups, and other confinement facilities. The Act applies to all public and private institutions that house adult or juvenile offenders and to community-based correctional agencies. The Act applies to multiple forms of sexual violence, including coercion by staff or other incarcerated people. DBPD maintains a police lock-up.   

The Daytona Beach Police Department has established a "Zero-Tolerance" for any incidence of arrestee-to-arrestee sexual assault, staff sexual misconduct and sexual harassment towards inmates. DBPD is committed to make every effort to provide a safe, humane and secure environment for all arrestees. The Department takes all reports of sexual abuse and assault seriously and actively investigates all allegations internally through Internal Affairs for administrative sanctions and externally through the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for criminal sanctions. DBPD will investigate all allegations, whether reported by an arrestee, a staff member or an outside third party. The victim will be provided a forensic examination, access to a victim advocate and follow-up counseling, if requested. All substantiated allegations will be submitted to the State Attorney’s Office for criminal prosecution.

The Department provides multiple ways for arrestees to report abuse or potential victimization. Arrestees who are in fear of, being sexually harassed, abused, or assaulted are encouraged to speak directly to a staff member, as this will allow for the quickest response. Arrestees may also complete and file a written Citizen Complaint (Note: You DO NOT have to use the standard formal procedure to make a report). Arrestees can also use the free confidential Office of Professional Standards PREA Reporting Hotline number listed on the posters throughout all the holding cells and housing areas, or the free confidential Rape Crisis Hotline number (1-800-503-7621).

If you have information regarding abuse or believe that an arrestee currently has been subjected to abuse, please contact the Office of Professional Standards number at 386-671-5100. You may also use the Volusia Rape Crisis Center’s free confidential Sexual Assault Hotline @ 1-800-503-7621, or you may submit a complaint form in person to the Department’s PREA Coordinator. The Department will accept all third-party reports received through: (1) DBPD’s Citizen Complaint system; (2) verbal reports (made in-person or via telephone); (3) written communication such as a letter or email; (4) contact with Department officials. When filing a report of sexual abuse or sexual harassment with the Department, some helpful information to include in the report is the date, time, and location of the incident and any involved parties. However, no one piece of this information is required to submit a report. The Department will make every effort to maintain the confidentiality of those parties involved in any incident of sexual abuse or sexual assault. Information will only be shared with investigators and other staff members who have a need to know.
