Speeding endangers everyone! We’re joining agencies from FL, GA, AL, TN & SC to take part in “Operation Southern Shield” to reduce fatalities & save lives. We will be patrolling main roadways in Palm Beach County from July 15th – July 21st. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
Independence Day is a great time for families and friends to come together – watch fireworks, grill, and enjoy a good day at the beach or the pool. Yet, disasters tend to happen. Every year, an estimated 11,000 people are treated for injuries related to fireworks.
While fireworks are legal to purchase in Florida, they are illegal to set off without a license. We know this doesn’t make much sense, but we don’t make the rules, we just enforce them. […]
Our Explorers make us so proud, we have to share this with you! They participated in the Florida Sheriff’s Explorers Association state Competition hosted by the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office. They brought home lots of awards, among them 1st place in Crime Scene Investigation.
This is Apache, the newest member of the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Mounted Unit. He’s a 13 year old Quarter Horse that was purchased by the Sheriff’s Foundation.

When PBSO Employee Michele Denski heard our community had a bee problem, she threw on her bee keeper gear and took care of the problem on her own time, collected the bees and transported them to a safe location. She not only solved a problem for our community, but acted as a dedicated conservationist. BEE proud, we’re proud!?
