Welcome to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office website for District 10 – Town of Lake Park. I am Lieutenant Nick Vassalotti and it is an honor to serve the residents, businesses and visitors of this great community as the District Commander.
I was born and raised in Palm Beach County and worked with my family’s owned and operated business before my career change to law enforcement in the early 1980’s. I worked as a police officer for small town police departments before joining the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office in 1988. I have received several accolades; specialized in Traffic Crash / DUI Investigations, Problem-Oriented Policing and Field Training. I have a broad education in many aspects of law enforcement including Police Management. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Public Administration (Cum Laude) from Barry University.
My priority is to serve and protect all citizens equally; maintaining a partnership with the community for the safety and security for all to live, work and visit the Town of Lake Park. My philosophy is working through problem oriented / community policing as I firmly believe that working together is the key to success.
