Hurricane Preparedness - Voluntary ID Cards & Out-of-State Resident ID Cards

Hurricane season begins June 1st thru November 30th. The Palm Beach Police Department is reminding businesses, residential employees, contractors and landscapers that while Town ID cards are not required, it is recommended that all new and renewal cards be obtained before a storm emergency occurs.

The Palm Beach Police Department is recommending that residents and businesses send their employees and household staff to obtain Town of Palm Beach Voluntary ID cards, in order to avoid long lines before a storm threatens. When a storm threatens Palm Beach and an evacuation order is issued, the Police Department will establish checkpoints at all entry points to the Town.  After the storm, the Town’s Damage Assessment Team will evaluate conditions on the Island in order to determine when it is safe for people to return.

Homeowners, property managers and employers please take note that Voluntary ID authorization forms will need to be notarized prior to arriving at the Palm Beach Police Department.  Non-notarized forms will not be accepted.  Residents that do not have another form of identification showing their Palm Beach address can obtain an out-of-state resident identification card.  The Voluntary ID and out-of-state authorization form can be obtained from our website under the “How Do I?” section or the Police Department’s main page under the “Quick Link” green button labeled Voluntary ID Application at www.palmbeachpolice.com.

If a storm is projected as a direct hit to southeast Florida, the Crime Scene Unit will cease issuing ID cards two days before landfall.  Plan early and obtain your Voluntary ID card from the Palm Beach Police Department’s Crime Scene and Evidence Unit located in the lobby at 345 S. County Road, Palm Beach.  Days and hours of operation are Monday – Friday (except holidays) from 10 AM until 2 PM.
