                    Allen S. Wyett
                    Town staff and elected officials express their gratitude to Allen Wyett, a loyal and dedicated elected official, who served the Town as a Councilman for twelve
                    years, completing his final term in February of 2007.
                    Mr. Wyett was first elected in February 1995. He was re-elected five times without opposition. In 2004, he was selected by his fellow Council members to serve
                    a term as Town Council President. During his tenure on the Town Council, the Town significantly expanded the beach protection program, undertook a major
                    drainage improvement program, changed the state law to allow emergency angioplasty to be performed at Good Samaritan Medical Center, and addressed a
                    myriad of other issues important to the health, safety, and welfare of Town citizens.
                    Councilman Wyett, thank you again for your many years of service.
                                                                                                                        Previous Annual Reports

2007 Palm Beach Police
Teen Police Academy




The Palm Beach Police Department announces the sched-
ule for the 2007 TEEN POLICE ACADEMY. The two ses-
sions are identical and each lasts for one week. Teens will
sign up for only one of the two sessions. This program
is offered to teens from 13-15 years of age who live in or
attend school in Palm Beach. Only those teens who have
never attended a Palm Beach Teen Police Academy may
apply. Space is limited to 16 teens per session. Students
must be available to attend for the full week and permission
must be given for participation in all scheduled activities.
The program is modeled after the Citizen Police Academy

Palm Beach Police Department's Citizen Police Academy
The Citizen Police Academy introduces citizens to the role and responsibilities of the police department. The program
demonstrates how the department controls crime through pro-active crime prevention, assertive law enforcement and
community-based policing. The Citizen Police Academy is not intended to make citizens into police officers, but to
provide an opportunity for individuals who live and work in Palm Beach to become familiar with the day-to-day opera-
tions of the police department.
Classes are held on six consecutive afternoons, one day per week. An optional 7th week is offered so that participants
can be certified in CPR. Participants are expected to take part in patrol car and marine unit “ride-alongs” as well as a
“sit-in” with the police department’s communications center. Weekly topics include: History of the Palm Beach Police
Department; Officer Selection and Training; Road Patrol Function; Crime Scene and Evidence Collection; Criminal
Investigations; Traffic/DUI Enforcement; Narcotics, Firearms, Use of Deadly Force and Constitutional Law. Each ses-
sion includes hands-on activities and demonstrations.
By participating in the Citizen Police Academy, citizens gain an understanding of the operations, mission and vision of
the Palm Beach Police Department.
Interested persons may request applications for the following scheduled programs.
Class #12          Wed. afternoons from 1 – 5 pm               Oct. 3 – November 7, 2007
Class #13          Wed. afternoons from 1 – 5 pm               Feb. 6 – March 12, 2008

Stay Informed with Register@
The Town of Palm Beach has continued to make strides
in 2006, not only keeping our residents as informed as
possible when it comes to Town information and ser-
vices, but also expanding the opportunities for Town offi-
cials to hear from our residents. In the spring, the Town
Manager’s office introduced “register@” an email ser-
vice that our residents and business owners can enroll in
to receive information regarding important Town issues.
Enrolling is easy. Interested residents can either sign up
through the Town’s website at www.townofpalmbeach.com
or call (561) 838-5410. The types of items on which you
can receive information are news releases, Council agendas
and actions, recreational activities, pending zoning applica-
tions, emergency information, etc. We encourage all those
who want to stay informed about their government and the
use of their tax dollars to enroll today! In addition, we have
been making changes to the website in our ongoing effort
to make it a vital tool for Town residents, business owners
and guests. We continue to add more useful information
such as important Town studies, pending zoning applica-
tions and the Town’s 5-Year Paving Plan. We have also
changed the design and layout of the website to make it
more user-friendly. If you have not visited the site or it has
been awhile since you visited, check it out today. There is
a wealth of information available to you.

New Software
Over the past two years, the Town’s information systems
staff has been working closely with all Town departments
to analyze, review, research and implement a 5-year Town
Wide Software Systems Plan. In February 2007, the Town
Council approved the purchase of Tyler Technologies’ Eden
software product for the Town’s financial, payroll and plan-
ning, zoning and building applications. The research for
this system has taken place over the past 12 months and is
scheduled to be implemented over the next two years. This
software system will enhance many Town operations and
will provide several new and improved web based services
to the community.

What is the benefit of Mobile Crime Watch?
The additional eyes and ears of town employees will
help prevent crime in our community.

What is Suspicious Activity?
Suspicious activity cannot be clearly defined but,
relies on individuals to be aware of their surround-
ings and to trust their insticts. Often it is a situation
that seems “out of place” in the context of what you
observe on a daily basis.

Life Saving Tools
Millions of americans suffer life-threatening medical emer-
gencies each year. Standard treatment requires administer-
ing IV drugs and fluids to these patients. Unfortunately,
paramedics are unable to start IVs on more than 6 million
patients annually. Traditional IV access is challenging or
impossible in many seriously injured victims because the
peripheral veins collapse when patients go into shock. As
a result, thousands of patients die needlessly. The medi-
cal community has long recognized the bone marrow or
intraosseous space acts as a non-collapsible vein, through
which any drug or fluid can be rapidly and safely adminis-
tered. Currently, intraosseous access is used for emergency
venous access in small children, whose bones are soft
enough to permit manual insertion of intraosseous needles.
Because adult bones are much harder than the bones of chil-
dren, a new needle to gain access in adults had to be devel-
oped. Palm Beach Fire-Rescue utilizes the EZ-IO system
to provide a solution to easy IO access in patients of all ages
with needles customized to their specific weight. With the
EZ-IO, paramedics no longer have to worry about time con-
suming and often exasperating IV access. Paramedics can
now concentrate on the more important aspects of airway
management, arrhythmias, fluid resuscitation, wound man-
agement and scene time. Additionally, the American Heart
Association recently announced revised guidelines for
Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) that now recom-
mend IO as the first alternative to IV in adult cardiac arrest
patients. For the first time in ACLS history, intraosseous
vascular access for adults has been given Class IIa status,
thereby recommending use of IO infusion as the alternative
of choice and confirming the scientific validity and safety
of the IO route. This important change declares IO access    Fall in “Love”
