Pick up the paper every Friday to read the Public Safety call log and learn ways to protect yourself and your belongings.

Safety Tip of the Week: Cars get towed. If you park in the wrong place [for whatever reason]or have accrued too many parking tickets or have some other violation, your car may be towed. To get your car back, you’ll need to present a valid driver’s license and proof of ownership of the vehicle to the Dispatcher at the Department of Public Safety, located in the Ponce Parking Garage. The vehicle’s license and registration must be current and valid. When those requirements are met, you’ll be given a release form for the vehicle. Once you have your release papers, you may proceed to the towing company yard to pay for the tow and pick up your vehicle. The current towing contract service provider is Southland Towing, located at 3870 Shipping Ave. For additional information, call Public Safety at 305-284-6666. Remember, the person who answers did not tow your car. He or she is trying to help you get it back. Avoid getting towed unless you want to go through the aforementioned process.
