The Niceville Police Department Released their crime statistics for the month of November at December 13th’s city council meeting. 


In total, the Niceville Police Department arrested a total of 12 people, 7 for felonies and 5 for misdemeanors, including DUI, in November. The total number of arrests continues its strong downward trend for the year. To give you an idea, January of 2022 had the most arrests for a single month – a total of 41 people were arrested. That’s roughly 20% of the total number of arrests for the year within the city limits of Niceville.
