As chief of police, I want to make it clear that the Ormond Beach Police Department is deeply troubled by the recent distribution of antisemitic propaganda throughout our city. This behavior is unacceptable, and we strongly denounce any form of hate or discrimination toward any individual or community. 

We are taking this incident seriously and have initiated an investigation. If you have any information or video footage that can assist us, we urge you to come forward and share it with Ormond Beach Police Corporal Jeremy Smith at [email protected]

We understand that this type of propaganda can be disturbing and upsetting to those who receive it. If you have received any of these materials, we encourage you to dispose of them immediately. 

Our department remains committed to upholding the safety and well-being of all members of our community, and we will not tolerate any behavior that goes against this mission. We stand in solidarity with the Jewish community and all those who are affected by hate and discrimination, and we will work tirelessly to ensure that Ormond Beach remains a welcoming place for all.
