The Orange County Sheriff’s Office is one of the largest Law Enforcement agencies in the United States with over 1400 sworn deputies and over 800 support personnel.
The Tourist Oriented Policing Sectors (T.O.P.S.) is divided into two separate fully operational patrol sectors. Sector V covers the world famous International Drive, an area commonly known as “I-Drive” or Downtown Orange County, Lake Buena Vista and parts of S.R. 192 areas. In addition the Orange County Convention Center, the second largest in North America is located in Sector V. The T.O.P.S. unit has a team of deputies assigned on a full time basis to the O.C.C.C. Sector VI covers all of the Walt Disney theme parks and hotels. Both sectors also have their own team of Detectives and a Crime Prevention Deputy assigned with specific training, knowledge and certifications in the Tourist Policing field. In addition, the Orange County Convention Center, is the second largest convention hosting facility in North America.
The T.O.P.S. unit also utilizes other agency resources for maximum visibility and to ensure the safety of guests. This includes our Bicycle Patrols, Mounted Units, Motor Units, Marine Patrol and Aviation/Air Support.
If you see one of our deputies while visiting the resort areas, please feel free to ask for any assistance you may need or just to say “hello.” You will find the deputies are more than happy to assist and even happy to pose for a photo with you or even take a group photo for you. This is why we are here not only to ensure a safe travel destination, but also to “MAKE A DIFFERENCE.”
