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.
