Over the years Mount Dora Police Department (MDPD) has assigned a dedicated officer to patrol the city’s historic downtown. Now the area will once again have its own officer to handle the area's specific public safety needs and parking enforcement.
MDPD Officer Jack Andreano, who has been with the department for two-and-a-half years, will work closely with downtown businesses and residents, as well as the Community Redevelopment Agency which helps make improvements to the downtown business district. Andreano will be working 10 hours a day, four days a week and patrolling on foot, as well as on marked vehicles, including a bicycle, Segway and patrol vehicle.
In addition to performing the functions of a patrol officer, Andreano will also help plan and coordinate MDPD’s community events and programs, as well as assist the local public school resource officers.
Andreano is also involved in MDPD recruiting and field training, and is a traffic homicide investigator for the department. He was previously assigned to the uniformed patrol division.
