Does City Code Enforcement investigate and initiate code violation cases only on complaints received from citizens?
No. The majority of the thousands of code violation cases handled each year by City of Pensacola Code Enforcement are Officer-initiated. Code violation cases are initiated by Officers on an ongoing basis through the proactive patrols of their assigned BEAT areas. An example is that during FY 2013, 1,840 overgrown vacant property cases were initiated by City Code Enforcement. Of those 1,840 cases, 1,390 (75%) were Officer-initiated while on routine patrol.
