Official statement from Police Chief Jeffrey S. Katz regarding the Aug. 20, 2014 arrest of Byron Harris
As I’m sure most of you recall, in August 2014, one of our police officers, Jeff Williams, was run over by a vehicle fleeing from police. Jeff’s spine was broken in two places, and had to be fused back together. He lost a piece of one of his ears, his face was permanently disfigured, and during his stay in Delray Trauma, caring medical personnel spent over two hours digging pieces of asphalt from his face and body.
To this day, Jeff is still undergoing physical therapy treatments several times a week and, months later, he struggles with immense pain, as he works toward his goal of someday returning to full duty. Before we go any further in this statement, I'd like to take this time to thank the overwhelming outpouring of support our community has expressed toward Jeff - it has made a great deal of difference in his recovery efforts. So, thank you.
The driver of the car that struck Officer Williams is Byron Harris. Harris endangered the public by leading officers on a chase that exceeded 100 mph up and down I-95 and eventually along residential streets. Harris is a convicted felon with an extensive criminal history. No part of Harris’ conduct before or during this incident can reasonably leave one to believe that he had any inclination to comply with our officers’ efforts to take him into custody. In fact, in the post arrest interviews, the two occupants of the car Harris was driving shared that he expressed concern that he couldn’t stop because he had “just killed a cop.”
After Harris and the other two occupants of his vehicle were apprehended, we were contacted by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, who told us we might want to take a look at a video which was captured by their Aviation Unit during the pursuit and arrest. The video depicts two-dimensional heat signatures of the vehicles and persons on scene. This video is far from a complete representation of what transpired during this arrest.
Like all depictions of confrontation, this video is difficult to watch – and again, because we are watching two-dimensional heat signatures – we are left to draw a subjective conclusion with regard to critical details of what transpired during this arrest. The process of determining if our officers’ actions were justified lay in clearly distinguishing between what we know, what we can prove, and what we believe.
We know that our officers used force, and we know they reported this use of force before being made aware of the existence of this video account. But the question is: was the level of force reasonably objective based on the level of resistance they experienced, and the level of fear officers felt as they confronted these subjects who they believed had just killed one of their co-workers. This video provides no insight into those critical questions.
Harris endangered everyone’s lives – not just officers but the public as well – by driving the way he did to get away from the police when he thought he murdered a police officer.
Police officers are lawfully justified to use force as appropriate. These actions are authorized by Florida state statutes and duly constrained by the United States Constitution. As a command staff, we have a responsibility to do our due diligence to ensure that when circumstances dictate that our officers need to resort to violence in order to control a chaotic situation, our agency standards are followed. These standards require that the application of force is lawful, appropriate, just and reflective of the will of the community we serve.
We must also validate what was written in our officers’ incident reports with the video evidence presented to us days later. As a department, we don’t possess the technology or expertise to accomplish this objective. As a result, last September, we reached out to the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office and FBI and requested their assistance. That investigation is still ongoing, and it is our sincere hope that these agencies are able to help us decipher the encounter on the video.

Many of his arrests gained the attention of local and national news, including that of a woman who posed on Craigslist as a dogsitter and then sold the dog to another person. After a “dogged” investigation, Joseph tracked down the person in possession of the stolen dog and reunited Fluffy with the rightful owner.
Following a series of false 911 calls, to include a bomb threat, a shooting and a naked man with a gun, Joseph obtained a subpoena for a cell phone and developed a suspect. The suspect was interviewed by Joseph and admitted to making the calls because he was bored.
Just as important as arresting someone for committing a crime is exonerating someone so that an innocent person is not sent to jail. That’s what Joseph did in the case of a juvenile who accused someone of dragging her into bushes and raping her. Following an interview with Joseph, the juvenile confessed that she made up the story because she might be pregnant and didn’t know what to tell her mother.
Joseph investigated a stolen F-350 pick-up truck with a trailer containing over $60,000 worth of commercial lawn equipment. His investigation took him to a truck stop on US 27 where he obtained video that led him to two suspects. One suspect was arrested in Homestead by the U.S. Marshal’s Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force and gave a full confession to Joseph.
Joseph also arrested a housekeeper who stole approximately $14,000 worth of property from her elderly employer. Though most of the jewelry had already been pawned and melted down, he was able to recover a silver watch belonging to the victim – and obtain a full confession.
Joseph is also a mentor and role model, his supervisor Sgt. Thomas Wallace wrote in the nomination. He was a team leader in the Teen Academy, works with the Police Explorers, and participated in Shop with a Cop, Cupcakes with a Cop, and the BBPD Holiday Toy Drive.
“I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this nomination,” Wallace wrote.
Agent Jon Kautz
Agent Kautz’s contributions to addressing the narcotics problems in our city are unrivaled. A member of the department’s Narcotics Investigation Unit, Kautz has longstanding relationships with members of the community and the State Attorney’s Office, and has built a sense of trust among defense attorneys and even many of the offenders he arrests. He conducts himself in a manner that emphasizes firmness and fairness, yet treats those he deals with in a way that displays dignity, respect and compassion.
In 2014, Kautz performed 308 hours of surveillance; filed 75 felony charges; 21 misdemeanor charges; attended 174 hours of training; seizure $10,080 cash; 3 guns; 5 vehicles; 22.6 kilograms of marijuana; 71.5 grams of pills; 49.7 grams of cocaine; 2.5 grams of heroin and 8.2 grams of methamphetamine.
Perhaps the most significant contribution he made to the Boynton Beach Police Department in 2014 was his leadership, his supervisor Sgt. Tony Magnanti wrote in the nomination memo. Kautz used his tactical knowledge to assist in the planning and service of all 32 search warrants served by members of the Narcotics Investigation Unit. He stepped forward as a mentor within NIU and on several occasions served as the Officer in Charge of the unit.
“Agent Kautz has distinguished himself as a reliable and trusted leader who is focused on providing the best law enforcement services possible to our citizens and fellow law enforcement officers,” Magnanti wrote. “He embodies our principles of civility, accountability and pride. He is a true asset to our community and agency.”
Communications Manager Mario Bryant
When he was hired by the Boynton Beach Police Department in March 2003, Mario Bryant worked as a communications dispatcher. He was then promoted to communications supervisor.
His experience in both positions made him an ideal choice for communications manager, a position he has held since October 2013.
In the past year, he has worked to revamp the Communications Training Program, address issues leading to excessive overtime usage and making sure the department’s tenets of civility, accountability and pride were adhered to within the unit.
He also worked to establish the City’s Deceased Animal Removal program; prepared and provided stewardship of the Communication Unit’s portion of the Support Services budget; and reinstituted performance-based employee evaluations in Communications; established a new sick leave occurrences policy and guided the City’s P25 radio project through the City Commission approval process.
In addition, Bryant, along with members of the Technical Services Unit, moved the Communications Center from City Hall to Fire Station 5 with little to no noticeable disruption in services.
- Nominated by Major Stewart Steele
Network Coordinator Randy Northrop
The Technical Services Unit was tasked with the responsibility of moving the dispatch center from City Hall to Fire Station 5, which required a complete overhaul of the space to include building a dedicated data center, installing new radio equipment, moving 911 systems and running all new data cables.
Network Coordinator Randy Northrop’s expertise with the radio system, 911 and data infrastructure made him an invaluable member of the project team. His proactive and positive relationship with vendors such as Motorola and AT&T resulted in a smooth installation, and his ability to run data, fiber and phone cables saved the City of Boynton Beach thousands of dollars in installation costs with no reduction in quality.
In addition to all this, Northrop still did all the things often taken for granted, including keeping the phones working, programming of in-car cameras, maintenance of the radio system, portable radio repair, as well as day-to-day tech support and network administration.
Known as “Silent Bob” for just going about his work with few or little words, Northrop’s contributions to the Boynton Beach Police Department are critical to its everyday operation.

Police conclude review of alleged excessive use of force
Boynton Beach Police have concluded the internal affairs investigation into the alleged excessive use of force by two officers on a 13-year-old boy who was removed from a school bus earlier this year following a disturbance.
The internal affairs investigation determined that while Officer Jermaine Jones was justified in his use of force, his performance of an acceptable takedown maneuver was problematic because he failed to control the teen’s upper body as prescribed by proper protocol.
Chief Jeffrey S. Katz has recommended that Jones receive a two-day suspension for unsatisfactory performance and not documenting the use of force on the appropriate departmental form.
Video evidence reviewed during the course of this investigation revealed that the teen administered a series of chest bumps to Officer Fabrice Jeanniton. The investigation concluded that Jeanniton did not act to control the situation prior to Jones’ intervention and takedown of the teen. As a result, Chief Katz will be administering a written reprimand for unsatisfactory performance for Jeanniton.
Both Jones and Jeanniton will also be required to attend retraining in control of conflict.
“We are committed to ensuring that we perform our duties in a way that reflects the professionalism expected by, and deserved by our public,” Chief Katz said. “Anytime we identify the opportunity to improve the competencies of our personnel, we get one step closer to this objective. As promised, all documents, evidence, and a full copy of the summary are available for anyone who wishes to educate themselves on the particulars of this case.”

Boynton Beach Police on Tuesday recovered a credit card skimmer device from inside a gas pump at a Mobil Station.
An employee with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services was doing an inspection at the gas station at 4798 N. Congress Ave., around 11 a.m., when he found the device on pump #10.
The suspect used a star-shaped tool to open the pump and installed a 10-inch gray ribbon wire attachment that is designed to read and store credit/debit card and PIN information. The data is then sent by Bluetooth to a nearby phone.
A store employee told police that the pumps are inspected every Monday, and when he checked it around 1020 hours the day prior, he did not observe anything suspicious.
There is absolutely no way that a victim would know their information was being stolen because the machine functions normally and there is nothing suspicious looking on the outside of the gas pump. To avoid possibly having your information stolen, we recommend paying with cash or going inside the business to pay with a credit/debit card.

Official Statement from Chief Jeffrey Katz on Stephen Maiorino
The following is the statement Chief Jeffrey S. Katz provided to the media at 3:45 P.M. today regarding Officer Stephen Maiorino.
Video of the press conference can be viewed here .
Due to the fact that we anticipate future legal and investigative action, I will not be answering any follow-up questions today; however, I assure you that just as we’ve asked you here this afternoon to provided you this information, we are committed to ensuring you – and our community – remain fully informed regarding the developments of this situation.
Two weeks ago, members of the Boynton Beach Police Department’s Special Victim’s Unit, along with representatives from the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office’s Public Integrity Unit, embarked upon an investigation of Stephen Maiorino, who has been employed as a police officer with the City of Boynton Beach since May of 2006. Maiorino, has been accused of using his position as a police officer to coerce a 20-year-old female, who was a passenger in his patrol car, into unwilling sexual relations while on duty.
A preliminary investigation of these allegations – which has included interviews, the examination of physical evidence, as well as some initial DNA testing – has lead our investigative team to establish a probable cause belief that Maiorino has indeed violated several criminal statutes including armed sexual battery, armed kidnapping, and unlawful compensation or reward for official behavior.
Maiorino has been on paid administrative leave since the night of the alleged incident – which was October 15, 2014. Today, formal charges were adopted by the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office, and I have placed Maiorino on unpaid administrative leave, pending all of the formalities associated with a public employee termination. Maiorino will be fired from the police department.
In terms of his arrest, we understand from the State Attorney's Office that Maiorino will be turning himself in to the Palm Beach County Jail at 4pm today.
I would like to say that I am both disturbed and disgusted by the nature of the complaint, the findings of the investigation, and indeed the very prospect that a law enforcement officer – someone with whom the public should hold in the highest regard because the manner in which we safeguard public welfare – could possibly exploit this trust in such a vile and inexcusable way. The facts of this case are simply unconscionable.
While this is a dark day in the history of our department, I can tell you that the membership of our organization is keenly aware that the actions of one rouge officer have diminished our standing with the public we serve. We are prepared to overcome this adversity not by word, but through action. We understand that the currency of effective public service is “good will” and we are – quite frankly - angry, that any individual might squander the good will we have worked so hard to establish within our community. We ask for your patience as this process progresses and for your prayers for those adversely affected by this incident.
Finally, I would like to thank the Boynton Beach Police detectives, crime scene personnel, and supervisory staff who have worked tirelessly on this most difficult case. I would also like to thank our State Attorney Dave Aronberg for his staff’s support. I'd also like to thank Ric Bradshaw for the expedited DNA analysis.
Jake Lemon is a 9-year old boy in Boynton Beach, Florida who felt a strong need to raise some money to help feed hungry kids here in town. Here is how it all started:
Jake: “Nana, I need a charity.”
Nana: “Hmmm… Why?”
Jake: “To make some money.”
Nana: “What do you need the money for?”
Jake: “Well, there are a lot of hungry kids here in Boynton Beach, and I need to make some money so I can get them some food.”
Nana: “How much money do you think you need?”
Jake: “$1,000, because they have families too.”
And so Jake's Helping Heart was born...
After much brainstorming on how to raise money, Jake came up with the “Cupcakes with a Cop” event. He approached Rosemary Tynski, Owner of Sweet Surrender Cupcake & Cookie Café and asked if he could host his event at her café – “because she has the best cupcakes.” She agreed. On October 20th, he met with the Boynton Beach Police Department to see if he could have some police officers to attend the event. They also agreed. It was important to him that the money benefit kids within his town, so after he researched local food banks and soup kitchens, he chose the Community Caring Center of Greater Boynton Beach, Inc. to receive the proceeds. He met with the Board of Directors on October 28th to explain his vision.
What: Cupcakes with a Cop
The CCC was organized by the Boynton Beach Ministerial Alliance in 1987 to serve the needs of the greater Boynton Beach community. It is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization.
Their mission is to address the root causes of poverty by an innovative integration of social services programs, economic development (through small business incubation), nutrition education, and access to a healthy sustainable food center.
Kids get to know Boynton Beach Police Officers while decorating 2 large custom gourmet cupcakes. The interactive event allows kids of all ages to get to know local police officers at a friendly level, while raising money to feed local children and their families.
· Additional activities will be provided by the Boynton Beach Police Department. Have fun!

Owners, Mickey & Rosemary Tynski, have perfected how to make incredibly-delicious, freshly-baked cupcakes and cookies. They only bake with the best ingredients and never use mixes, preservatives, or Tran’s fats. They believe that customer service is the most important aspect of their business and that starts with consistently creating exceptional cupcakes and cookies.
Jake says, “Sometimes when I think of something sad, a crazy idea comes to me on how to fix it. I don’t know where it comes from; it just pops into my head. Sometimes it isn’t too crazy of an idea and I get to do it.”

But when it’s time to work, K9 Hutch tracks and apprehends some of the most dangerous criminals.
After serving the City of Boynton Beach for more than 7 years, Hutch officially retires from the Boynton Beach Police Department today.
“He has proven to be a loyal, trustworthy crime fighter who protected me, our fellow officers and the community,” said his partner, K9 Officer Mark Sohn.
Sohn and Hutch have apprehended more than 200 suspects since they began working together in March 2007. The crimes committed by these suspects range from attempted murder and aggravated battery to robbery, burglary and fugitive felons wanted by other law enforcement agencies.
Hutch is trained in patrol and drug detection, and his efforts have resulted in the seizure of hundreds of pounds of marijuana, significant ounces of cocaine and more than $15,000 in cash.
Sohn and Hutch also took top honors in the 2012 South Florida Police K9 Competition.
Hutch touched the hearts of hundreds of Boynton Beach residents for his endearing personality and his love for attention – and having his ears scratched…all the time.
“Hutch is unique in the way that he could physically apprehend a suspect one second, and then lean in to be pet by his fellow officers the next second,” Sohn said. “On several occasions, his mere presence has quelled intense situations with suspects. He’s not anything like other police K9’s.”
With Hutch’s retirement, the Boynton Beach Police Department swears in Officer Sohn’s new partner, K9 Bako.
Bako is a year old German Shepherd who hails from the Czech Republic. He understands German commands, and is trained in patrol and drug detection.
