PRIDE IN SERVICE – 2023 STONEWALL PRIDE PARADE AND STREET FESTIVAL
Every summer brings Island City Pride, and on Saturday June 17th, our City will host the annual Stonewall Pride Parade and Street Festival. The professionals of the Wilton Manors Police Department share in the excitement as we approach this signature event. Public safety will be on center stage during pride weekend, and the professionals of our police department, and our local, state and federal law enforcement partners, will be here for you. To be clear, public safety will be our number one priority. Since January, public safety officials have been planning for every aspect of this event to ensure our operational plan meets National Incident Management System standards, and the needs of our community. Some special operations in place will be uniformed patrols, explosive odor detection canine sweeps, drone overwatch, rapid response teams, public safety technologies, and more. I remind our community it takes a partnership to nurture proper levels of public safety, so if you “See Something – Say Something”. Leading up to and during pride weekend, should you hear or see anything of concern, immediately report this information to law enforcement. We also encourage you to stay informed by following us on Twitter, our primary communications platform for this event. We look forward to welcoming you and more than 40,000 friends to the Arts and Entertainment District, and we hope you enjoy what Stonewall Pride is all about!
The Wilton Manors Police Department is committed to policing with a passion for our profession and with compassion for those we serve.
The professionals of the Wilton Manors Police Department, through quality training initiatives, innovative techniques and proactive partnerships with our community, will endeavor to be the pinnacle of our law enforcement profession.
Service – Courage – Integrity
