Message from the Captain

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office Strategic Communications division is proud to professionally serve our residents and media partners with timely responses to all requests. The Office is staffed during normal business hours and its members are on call to assist after hours as well.   


Routine media inquiries and records requests are handled as expeditiously as possible during normal business hours. After hours and on weekends, a Public Information Officer is on-call for emergencies and significant breaking news events.


We work within the letter of the law as per FSS 119, and we also work within the spirit of that law to ensure our media partners timely information, while protecting the exemptions mandated by it.  


Captain Carlos R. Torres
