Have any of you had a Fort Walton beach officer claim you didn't have your seatbelt on when you did and get ticketed. Seems they have a money issue and I am wondering if the PD has a pattern of issuing tickets for violations that didn't occur. If you were ticketed did you fight it in court. It seems if I read the ticket right they can increase your fine if you fight the ticket!

It's this kind of dishonest ticketing that gives this profession a bad name. It also says something about the KIND of people that this department hires. Trash in trash out. The pressure to write tickets comes from the adminstration. YES THEY DO HAVE A QUOTA. They don't call ita quota they call it department standards.

I live in FWB but was in the military, so I had Ohio plates on my car. On memorial day of this year 2012 - I got pulled over by FWB Police Officer and got a ticket for not wearing seat belt. Yea whatever!!! The ticket was a $113.00 but I went to court to fight it - I have to do 15 hours of community service. What a scam!!! I see everyone ticketed is from out of State - Do I see a pattern here.... Not good for your rep or your economy FWB. There are actually better things to do with your time FWB Police - maybe serve and protect.

this is the Ft. Walton Beach Police for you. Nothing but dishonest cops. Don't expect to have your crimes solved by these dumbasses. They don't know their asses from a hole in the ground. Look who the capt. is a major dumbass. You people in Fort Walto should have voted to let the Sheriff's Office take them over. You missed a good chance to make things right.
