As we've reported this week, Palm Beach County has a new ordinance on the books.

It bans the unauthorized projection of anything onto a building or structure and stems from antisemitic incidents, which have been on the rise. They include the projection of a swastika onto the side of a building in Downtown West Palm Beach.

Cities will have to opt into the ordinance and it's already in effect in unincorporated areas of the county. Violators will face fines of up to $2,000.

Sheriff Ric Bradshaw says his team is ready to enforce any policies that would curb these incidents.

"This is on the front burner with us. This is an important issue and we are paying attention to what's going on. So, hopefully that gives you a little bit of comfort."

The sheriff spoke during a recent town hall and said residents need to take the initiative as well, and report any incidents.

"We have an app that you can get a hold of us on and you don't even have to identify who you are. Just give us the information. The more information we have, the more we can put the puzzle together to do what we need to do."

The PBSO Connect Protect app is available free on iPhones and Androids.
