Cooper City Emergency Notice

Subject: Emergency Notice

Effective immediately until further notice.

An alert has been issued by Pembroke Pines Police Department and the Broward County School Board of a threat to shoot into a school facility or government building. All schools in Pembroke Pines and Cooper City are on “lock down“ until further notice. Cooper City government buildings are also on 'lock down'. Please take precautions at your facility by locking your front doors and only let in people that are known to you. If there are any problems please call 911.


The statement below is from Superintendent of Schools Jim Notter:

Broward County Public Schools will remain on districtwide lockdown, code red until such time that police authorities communicate that it is no longer necessary. Pembroke Pines police are working in unison with SIU, BSO, as well as other police authorities at their command center in Pembroke Pines. There has been an email indicating a generalized threat that something big was going to happen at a government facility, post office, or school.

The police will dictate the status and continuation of the lockdown, and will communicate with the Distrtict when the lockdown is lifted. As of this moment, we are continuing lockdown and code red at all schools and district facilities in the county.

The District's rumor control hotline has been activated (754.321.0321) and information will be updated as it becomes available.

Thank You Cooper City!

I would like to personally give many thanks to you, your family and your friends for all of your hard work and your support for my re-election campaign. The support from The People and business owner’s like you, gave us an overwhelming victory last night. The result is that I again have the honor to continue to serve as your ‘Go To’ Commissioner in Cooper City!

With your perseverance, resources, friends, neighbors, donations, dedication, time and faith in me, you made our vision a reality, which is getting Cooper City back on the right track. I never could have done any of this without you, and your generous support.

Now, once again, I will be able to continue the work of The People in Cooper City. Just as I have always maintained, my primary focus remains on reducing the burden of government on small business owners, to fight the fraud and waste at all levels of government that waste your hard earned taxpayer dollars, to continue to positively lead our city in a direction, and to grow the entrepreneurial spirit that will improve our local economy and in turn, create more local jobs.

Cooper City faces many challenges, but a new day has again come. Together, I know that we will continue to do great things with your support and your faith in my ability to lead us in a new and positive direction.

If there is anything you need or if you have any issues, please feel free to contact me, your ‘Go To’ commissioner.

Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Best regards,

Commissioner John Sims
Thank you for your support and your vote!
