A Message from Captain Michael Wallace:


I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself as the Commander over the Western Regional Districts 5, 11, 12 and 13 and give you a little background on myself. My name is Captain Michael Wallace and it is an honor to have been assigned to the Glades area, and I look forward to getting to know residents, business owners and leaders of the community during my tenure out here.  I started my career in law enforcement in 1984 as a member of the New York Police Department working as a road patrol officer.  It is during this time that I learned the core value of Community Policing and the importance of partnering with those I serve.  I then transferred to the Juno Police Department in 1989 and in 1990 became a member of the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.  I have been afforded the opportunity to work in many rolls while at P.B.S.O. some of them being Road Patrol Deputy, Corporal, Narcotics Agent, SWAT Member and an Investigator in the Violent Crimes Division focused on Gang and Homicide investigations.  I was promoted to Captain on July 27, 2013 and assigned as your District Commander.  I am a big proponent of education and training, and have worked hard to achieve my Bachelor's Degree in Professional Administration from Barry University and Master's Degree in Organizational Leadership from Palm Beach Atlantic College.  I am also a graduate of the Southern Police Institute Commander Officer's Development Course, and look forward to continuing my training as a Commander in order to better serve the citizens of this county. 

As part of the western community, the deputies and employees of the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office Western Region (District 5 - Unincorporated Area, District 11 - City of South Bay, and District 12 - City of Pahokee, District 13 – City of Belle Glade) are committed to assisting citizens in improving their quality of life here in the Glades.

We accomplish this by empowering our deputies through the philosophies and practices of community policing which encourages them to work with communities utilizing problem-solving techniques. Deputies and supervisors are assigned a sector of responsibility, where they develop strategies and action plans aimed at combating crime and providing public service, while working in direct partnership with the community. Our efforts are timely, and geared towards addressing not only the symptom but also the cause of any given issue/challenge that affects the safety and well-being of the community.

The members of Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office Western Community Districts are well equipped and trained to provide you professional law enforcement services that are enhanced by the overall resources and personnel of the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. Problem solving is our way of doing business at all levels, and is accomplished in concert with the community we serve.

We stand ready to serve your needs, and ask that you join us in keeping the Western Communities a wonderful and safe place to live, work, and play.

 Thank you,

Captain Michael Wallace
