Bike and Pedestrian Safety

Welcome to the Jupiter Police Department’s Bike and Pedestrian Safety page.

For the fifth year in a row, the Jupiter Police Department is participating in the Pedestrian and Bike Safety High Visibility Enforcement campaign.  JPD is committed to providing education and awareness to pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists, so we can ensure the safety of everyone who utilizes our roadways.  This contract funded campaign through the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), Institute of Police Technology Management (IPTM), and the University of North Florida is scheduled through May 2020.

In addition to this enforcement campaign, below you will find updates on bike and pedestrian safety efforts, as well as helpful resources to keep you and your family safe when enjoying the outdoors in our beautiful Town.
