School is back in session! This means books, and learning, and hopefully less Fortnite. This also means that we have to be careful while driving through school zones in the morning and afternoon.
Members of our Police Department and Fire Department have been out urging drivers to watch their speed and to not block major roads while waiting for school dismissals. Please drive carefully and be mindful of distractions.
We hope everyone has a terrific first week of school! ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to the City of Auburndale.Congratulations to our Police Chief, Chris Nelson, who has been announced as the new Executive Director of the State Attorney's Office, Tenth Judicial Circuit! This SAO serves Hardee, Highlands and Polk Counties.

He joined Auburndale's Police Department as the first Deputy Chief and in 2012, Chris was promoted to the position of Police Chief.
We want to thank Chief Nelson for his dedicated service to the citizens of Auburndale over the past decade. He recently acted as the Incident Commander of the City Emergency Operations Center during Hurricane Irma and has been instrumental in improving our EOC for any future events. Chief Nelson currently serves as the 3rd Vice President of the Florida Police Chiefs Association, (FPCA) and was formerly the President of the Polk County Police Chiefs Association. He was also appointed earlier this year to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission, to help develop and recommend school safety improvements to the Florida Legislature.
