I am honored to be selected as your Law Enforcement Commander of the City. Our administrative offices for District 12 are located at 38840 SR 80, Belle Glade, Florida. The following is a little background for your reading pleasure:
The City of Pahokee is nestled on the eastern banks of Lake Okeechobee and is located in western Palm Beach County. The city offers direct access, via the Herbert Hoover Dike, to the largest freshwater lake in the State of Florida. The Lakefront venue offers some of the most incredible sunset views to be witnessed and has led to the local slogan “Palm Beach Counties Other Coast”. The City itself encompasses an area of 5.4 square miles and is bordered by both sugarcane fields and Lake Okeechobee. Pahokee is home to approximately 6,500 residents who commonly refer to the area as “Muck City” referring to the extremely rich and fertile soil which produces a multitude of crops each year.
The City of Pahokee contracted Law Enforcement services through the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office beginning in February of 2006. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office has 12 highly trained and professional deputies assigned to patrol the City and to provide a full range of law enforcement services and to facilitate resources, as needed, to its citizens.
Please feel free to contact me for any assistance you may need.
Lieutenant Dan Picciolo
