New County Program May Help Save Lives after an Accident

Get Your Yellow Dot Decal in Locations throughout the City of Hollywood
   HOLLYWOOD - Broward County has launched a new program that may help save lives in the critical moments after a car accident. The Yellow Dot Motorist Medical Information Program (Yellow Dot Program) is designed to assist Broward County residents and first responders in the event of a medical emergency where the participant's vehicle is involved.
   "This program will save lives by providing vital information to first responders when accident victims may be unable to communicate for themselves. Enrollment in this program is voluntary, quick and easy," said Broward County Mayor Martin Kiar.  
    A Yellow Dot decal displayed on the rear windshield, or in a clearly visible location on a motorcycle alerts emergency responders to look for the Yellow Dot pamphlet in the vehicle's glove compartment. Pamphlet information, provided by participants, is designed to help emergency responders decide how to treat a person who may be unconscious following an accident or medical emergency.  
    Yellow Dot decals and pamphlets are available at the City of Hollywood Fire Rescue Administration Office at Station 74 at 2741 Stirling Road in Hollywood.  Pamphlets and decals are also available at the Hollywood Police Department Headquarters, 3250 Hollywood Boulevard and Community Centers throughout the City.  For more information on the     Yellow Dot Program or to request a decal and pamphlet call 954.831.4000, visit or email

City of Hollywood Police Memorial Dedication
The Hollywood Police Department will dedicate a new police memorial to the six courageous officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty since the City’s founding in 1926.  The ceremony will be held on Friday, May 23 at 10:00 a.m. in front of the Hollywood Police Department at 3250 Hollywood Boulevard.
The Hollywood Police Memorial features six Officer Podiums to individually honor each fallen officer.  Installed in each officer’s podium is a photo along with a plaque with silver-colored raised lettering, a silver-colored badge and a silver-colored patch. There is also a Main Podium adorned with an aluminum plaque that matches each officer’s plaque.
The six officers whose 
service and sacrifice are 
honored by the memorial include:
Officer Owen Coleman (09-1925 to 01-25-1926) was one of the first men hired when the newly formed City was establishing the police department.  Officer Coleman was killed in a shootout in Davie in January of 1926.  Most news accounts of his death were destroyed in the hurricane of 1926. In the early 1990s, an historian of South Florida Police Officers killed in the line of duty discovered records of his death.  Officer Henry T. Minard (9-6-1971 to 11-18-1972) was killed in the line of duty on November 18, 1972.  Officer Minard was answering a silent holdup alarm at a jewelry store and interrupted a robbery in progress.  He was fatally shot by the robber. 
Officer Byron W. Riley (10-11-1971 to 8-30-1973) and Phillip C. Yourman (10-11-1971 to 8-30-1973) began a pursuit of a strong-arm robbery suspect vehicle.  As they sped through a quiet residential neighborhood, the police vehicle struck a tree and they both were fatally injured. 
Officer Frankie Shivers (12-20-1981 to 9-6-1982) lost her life while responding as a back-up to a car accident. This bizarre incident began with a traffic stop by another officer, John Lunney.  While writing the citation, another car slammed into Lunney's police cruiser, hurling him onto the roof of the vehicle he had stopped. The vehicle causing the crash burst into and Officer Shivers attempted to rescue the woman in the burning vehicle. The female driver grabbed Officer Shivers, revolver and shot her several times. 
Officer Alex Del Rio (4-12-99 to 2-22-08) is the City of Hollywood’s most recent fallen officer.  Officer Del Rio was conducting traffic enforcement on Sheridan Street on the evening of February 22, 2008.  In an attempt to stop a speeding motorist, he was involved in a motor vehicle crash and lost his life.
