Uniform Patrol Division

Major Rick Meli - Division Commander

2500 West Colonial Drive
Orlando, Florida 32804
(407) 254-7420

 

Few would dispute the fact that deputies assigned to the Uniform Patrol Division are the backbone of the Sheriff's Office.

These are the men and women who are the first to respond to your call for help. They are almost always the first to arrive on a scene and give aid and comfort to the injured. They often put themselves in harm's way every day they are on the job to stabilize a violent domestic call or when they search a dark building for a dangerous suspect.

They pull victims out of burning buildings or give the first life-saving breaths of CPR to the child they have just pulled out of a backyard swimming pool. They serve and protect the citizens of Orange County and they do it with little recognition or fanfare.

They take it all in and see what they do as simply part of their jobs.

Ocoee, Florida 34761

Sector III was once a sprawling rural area filled with orange groves and supported by the fruit packing and juice industries; however, as with all areas of Orange County, it has seen unprecedented growth in recent years. Encompassing the west side of Orange County, bordering Lake County to the west and extending east to Orange Blossom Trail, Sector III  has adjusted it policing methods from dealing with a vastly rural area to the problems associated with a rapidly growing commercial and residential urban area.  The sector serves some of the county’s oldest and well established communities, ranging from Orlo Vista, Winter Garden, Pine Hills and Ocoee, to some of the county’s most affluent areas, including the areas of Windermere, Dr. Phillips, and Metro West.  Based on its diverse community makeup, Sector III personnel constantly strive to provide the best law enforcement services by utilizing community involvement to enhance relationships and building on partnerships based on trust and mutual respect.  These elements assist the sector in formulating a true crime reduction strategy.

Sector IV
Captain Bruce McMullen - Sector Commander

2400 West 33rd Street
Orlando, Florida 32839

Sector IV has traditionally been one of the busiest and more challenging areas to police for the Sheriff’s Office through recent history. Nothing has changed. The area stretches from the city limits of Orlando south to Kissimmee. Within its borders, you will find some of the older, more established areas of the county. These areas are rich with cultural diversity and many have been revitalized and demonstrate community pride. But, as you travel south, the complexion of the sector changes significantly. Sprawling, resort-like residential developments, modern shopping plazas, established business and industrial zones and restaurants make for a more eclectic atmosphere for residents and visitors.  It even hosts the Florida Mall, Orange County’s largest and arguably busiest shopping mall that has become an attraction all of its own for the throngs of tourist who visit the county annually.

Sector V is commonly known as the tourist corridor to those tasked with policing it. The sector was actually created because it is, in fact, in the home for many attractions and hotels that bring visitors to the county to include Sea World and the world renowned Orange County Convention Center and Universal Studios.
