Welcome to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office District 12 – City of Pahokee website. My name is Lieutenant Ed Luty and it is my pleasure to serve as the Commanding Officer of District 12 and the Law Enforcement Liaison with the City of Pahokee. My staff and I are honored that the city has chosen to partner with the Sheriff’s Office so that through teamwork, we can strive to make the community a safe and enjoyable place to live, work and visit. Throughout the course of my twenty-five year career with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, several of my assignments have been in the Glades community. These assignments have included contract deputy at the Okeelanta Sugar Mill, the Operational Watch Commander for the Western Region and a prior tour as the Executive Officer and Commanding Officer for District 13.

The administrative offices of District 12 are located at 38840 S.R. 80, Belle Glade. Personnel assigned to District 12 include, 12 deputies, and 1 clerical office position. The Sheriff’s Office has partnered with the City of Pahokee to promote a community policing philosophy with an emphasis on reviewing crime statistics in an effort to identify predictive trends in order to offer a proactive response to our law enforcement activities on a daily basis.

As the Commanding Officer of District 12, I thank you for the opportunity to continue serving your community.
