Beach Substation Grand Re-Opening


700 Bayway Blvd., Clearwater Beach
(727) 462-6370 (non-emergency only)




Clearwater's Island Officers now have a permanent home to call their own.

CPD's District I (comprised of the barrier islands of Clearwater Beach, Sand Key and Island Estates) operations has returned to their old home at 700 Bayway Boulevard, and have vacated the temporary 483 Mandalay Avenue substation in the Pelican Walk Shopping Center.

District operations moved out of the Bayway facility in 1998 because of the deteriorating condition of the building. But after an extensive search for another suitable location on the islands, it was determined that the best option was to remodel the old station and return there.

The Police Substation building was donated to CPD years ago by the estate of Louis Vaneck, and was once known as "Louis' Roost" when it was a popular restaurant on the south end of Clearwater Beach. Since the police department moved out of the building four years ago, temporary substation facilities were established at the City Marina, the now-demolished Civic Center and - since 1999 - in the current Pelican Walk location.

A public grand re-opening was held on February 14, 2003. All district telephone numbers remain the same and the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office is anticipated to move its patrol boat from the Marina to a slip at the rear of CPD's sub-station.

Feel free to stop by our extensively renovated facility; we are always happy to have our residents pay us a visit. For additional information, contact Lt. James Steffens, District I Commander, at (727) 462- 6372, or james.steffens@myclearwater.com.
