Citizens Advisory Committee

Next Meeting: Thursday, July 2, 2020

The Citizens Advisory Committee is a nine-member group made up of citizens nominated by the Orange County Mayor, each County Commissioner, the Sheriff, and the police union. Please review the policy for more details. If you are interested in volunteering for the committee, please contact your Commissioner.


The committee’s mandate is twofold:

To provide a public forum for constructive dialogue between citizens and law enforcement;

To study relevant policies and procedures and provide recommendations, if any, for positive change.


The Citizens Advisory Committee meets monthly.

Procedure for July 2 Meeting

To comply with CDC Social Distancing Guidelines and keep our citizens safe, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) will conduct meetings virtually until further notice. Orange County remains committed, however, to providing alternative platforms for the citizens to have the opportunity to submit their public comment.


Date: Thursday, July 2, 2020
Time: 6:00pm
Topic:  Use of Force Policy

View the Use of Force and other related policies.


This meeting will be held virtually. Join the virtual meeting at 6pm on July 2. 

Procedure for Public Comments

Please email your comment to Public.Comment@OCFL.net by 5 PM on July 1, 2020. Please include your name, address, phone number and the topic of your public comment in the email. At the beginning of the public comment period, Orange County Sheriff’s Office staff will enter your submission into the public record.


Citizens interested in participating in the “Public Comment” portion of the CAC meeting in person may do so in a virtual setting on the first floor of the County Administration Building. Social distancing guidelines will be in place to facilitate this option. Citizens who choose this option are encouraged to pre-register for public comment by completing a Board Appearance Request Form by 5 PM on July 1, 2020.


Please note that the time allocated to each individual for public comment (via email or in person) shall be at the sole discretion of the CAC Chairperson and may be reduced from the normal 3 minutes based on the number of speakers.
