Port of Palm Beach’s Meekins Joins Riviera Beach Police Foundation Board

The Riviera Beach Police Foundation has appointed Port of Palm Beach Executive Director Michael Meekins to its Board of Directors.  

“I am honored to join the Board of Directors, allowing me to contribute to the nonprofit’s mission and objectives,” said Meekins.

The Riviera Beach Police Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) dedicated to supporting the Riviera Beach Police Department, focuses on enhancing public safety through community partnerships, specialized training, and advanced technology initiatives.

“Mr. Meekins has blessed our Foundation with his commitment to provide his time and talent to ensure through fundraising that the Riviera Beach Police Department will have the most advanced training, the latest equipment and up to date technology so as to protect the community in the most effective way,” said Billie Brooks, Riviera Beach Police Foundation President.

Under Meekins leadership, in April 2024, the Riviera Beach Police Department assigned a full-time Riviera Beach Police officer to the Port to oversee both landside and marine operations.

“Joining this board allows me to apply my experiences and commitment to service in a meaningful way, ensuring my fellow board of directors and I uphold and strengthen public safety for all,” Meekins said.
