Welcome to the West Palm Beach Police Department's Shield program. The Shield program is the  Police Department's  public-private partnership with businesses, leading security professionals and law enforcement agencies throughout the world.

The purpose of the Shield program is to strengthen the Department’s communication with our private sector partners. Shield provides an information and resource sharing platform that addresses emerging and evolving conditions within the City of West Palm Beach on all matters of public safety. 


WPBPD Shield receives and disseminates information and intelligence from other Shield programs and our public/private partners. By engaging and sharing information with both private and public sector leaders, the Department creates a force multiplier to improve public safety.
