Welcome to the Orange County Sheriff's Office Website. It is my privilege to command one of the finest and most well equipped law enforcement agencies in America staffed by some of the most highly trained and dedicated law enforcement professionals in the business of serving and protecting their community. I take great pride in the fact that Orlando, Florida is my home and that I grew up in the very same community that I have committed 27 years of my life in the realm of public safety and service to the community. And because this is my home I will do everything necessary to maintain the quality of life that makes Central Florida, not only one of the world's premier tourist destinations, but one of the finest places in the United States to live, work, and play. I trust you will enjoy your visit to our web site and I invite you to check back often. Thank you.

OCSO Accreditation Recognition,
Excelsior Award, Excellence Award, Meritorious Award


“Simply being reaccredited alone by both the state and national agencies displays the Orange County
Sheriff's Office commitment to excellence,” said Sheriff Demings. “The Excelsior Award, the Excellence Award, and the Meritorious Award all show that the men and women of this agency exemplify what being among the best of the best is all about.”

Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings is pleased to announce that the Orange County Sheriff's Office has been reaccredited for the seventh time, by the state and national accrediting organizations.These reaccreditations are for three years and come with special commendations.

The Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation
recognized our agency as an Excelsior Agency, the first in the State of Florida to receive the Excelsior for the second time. This award was developed as recognition for agencies that have attained certain longevity in accreditation and remain committed to a philosophy of excellence. The Excelsior Award recognizes agencies that have received five unconditional assessments.

The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agenciesbestowed two prestigious honors on the Orange County Sheriff’s Office as the result of the Gold Standard Assessment conducted by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).

The first honor received was the Accreditation with Excellence Award. This award is given to further recognize those agencies with a proven history of excellence in the accreditation process, and serves to provide other agencies seeking accreditation with examples of “best practices” to address compliance, policy development, file maintenance, and other issues relating to the accreditation process.

The Advanced Meritorious Award was the second honor received.  This award recognizes 15 years, or more, of continuous commitment to accreditation.
