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.
