Delray Beach Police Chief Javaro Sims to retire next week | NewsRadio WFLA

After 30 years with the Delray Beach Police Department, Chief Javaro Sims is retiring at the end of the month.

“I really embraced the community. The community also embraced me. (I) did a lot of things in the community. (I) did a lot of work with people in the community, helping them improve their quality of life. So that kept me energized and I guess motivated to stay.”

Sims started with the department in 1992 and was named the city’s first African American police chief in 2019.

“I think one of my proudest moments is actually becoming a leader because it didn’t just happen for me, it happened for all the boys and girls of color seeing me in the position. of this nature… giving them the belief that they could do it too.”

He says he’s also proud of how the Delray Beach PD operated during the pandemic and during the civil unrest in the summer of 2020.

Sims was a teacher in Miami-Dade County before beginning his law enforcement career in Delray Beach. We asked him what prompted him to change careers.

“Well, when people ask me that question, my response is first and foremost ‘I wanted a safer job'”

After a chuckle, he explained that it was about wanting to make a difference for children in the community and pointed out that a teacher’s job ends after school.

Tuesday, August 30 is Chief Sims’ last day on the job, when Deputy Police Chief Russ Mager will become the new chief. He has been with the ministry for 26 years.

One Walmart associate shared the ones they are aware of, starting with a "Code Brown," which means there has been a violent act at the store.
