Crime Suppression Unit
The Crime Suppression Unit (CSU) was formed to provide the Atlantic
Beach Police Department the ability to address emerging crime trends and
problem areas. CSU allows the department to direct resources to a
specific problem without diverting Patrol Officers from responding to
calls for service.
The philosophy of the CSU is that crime can be deterred from occurring
through highly proactive enforcement and through directed enforcement
following creative problem oriented policing strategies. They routinely
investigate the following types of crimes, bu are not limited to: illegal drug activity, prostitution, alcohol violations,
chronic crimes, weapons violations, and public nuisances.
Members assigned to the CSU are available to provide education to the
community related to the identification and recognition of drugs and the
signs and symptoms associated with their use, and to educate the public
about drugs in our community.
If you would like to make a complaint about drugs, prostitution, or any other illicit activity, please email us or contact Commander Tiffany Layson at (904) 247-5859.
