Crestview Crime Information

On the peak of a woodland range between the Shoal and Yellow Rivers of Okaloosa County, you’ll find the City of Crestview. It is one of the highest points in the state and is considered one of the coldest, wettest cities in Florida. It is known as the “Hub City” because it is where Interstate 10, Florida State Road 85, U.S. Highway 90 and CSX railroad meet. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, the population of Crestview is 20,978.

The Crestview Police Department is located on Stillwell Boulevard. According to the Crestview Police Department’s Quarterly Report, in the first quarter of 2013 they made 280 arrests, 20 juvenile arrests and 7584 security checks. There was also 545 crime related incidents, 13 of which involved a firearm. The police handed out 2,091 citations, 672 speeding citations, 14 DUI citations and 78 criminal citations during the first quarter of 2013.

Sex Crimes Involving Minors

All sex crime convictions can result in serious penalties. That is true especially if a minor is involved. For example, a 47-year-old Crestview man has been taken to Okaloosa County Jail after allegedly exposing himself to a 12-year-old girl. According to local media reports, the man pulled his pants down in front of a 12-year-old girl in a Niceville Wal-Mart. After reviewing his license plate with video surveillance, the authorities tracked him down. He gave a voluntary written apology and now faces lewd or lascivious exhibition to a victim under 16 years old.

This incident is an example of how even a nonviolent, yet illegal, sex act can result in mandatory registration as a sex offender. Convicted sex offenders struggle to reintegrate into society because of Florida’s stringent residency laws. Sex offenders are prohibited from living in the vicinity of schools, playgrounds, school bus stops, daycare centers or any location where children congregate.

Speaking with the Authorities

Police officers in Crestview are tasked with assisting the prosecution and help strengthen the case against you. They are not on your side when you are under investigation for a crime. Instead of putting your future at risk by speaking with the authorities, politely decline to answer any questions without an attorney by your side.
