Welcome to Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office District 14 – City of Lake Worth homepage. It is truly an honor to serve the residents, business owners, and visitors to Lake Worth as your commanding officer. As a native of South Florida, and a veteran of the Lake Worth Police Department prior to the merger with PBSO in 2008, I have a good understanding of the priorities and values held by the residents of Lake Worth.
District 14 is comprised of 82 sworn deputies and 12 civilian personnel. The City of Lake Worth encompasses 7 square miles and has a diverse population of 36,000 residents. District 14 embraces the community policing philosophy, which involves a committed partnership between citizens and the deputies sworn to serve them. We work closely with the city, the CRA, and Lake Worth’s many neighborhood associations to make Lake Worth a safer place to live, work, and visit. Working together, we can better address crime and quality of life issues, as well as build relationships and a foundation for future success.
Thank you for visiting our website. Please feel free to contact me for any questions, concerns, or compliments you have regarding our services or staff. I look forward to working with you.
Yours in Service,
Captain Todd Baer
