Welcome to the District 17 – First let me introduce myself, my name is Lt. David Combs, and I am honored to have been assigned as the Commander of District 17- The Town of Loxahatchee Groves. I have lived in South Florida for the past 30 years. I began my law enforcement career with the Broward County Sheriff’s Office. I later served with the Boca Raton Police Department, before joining the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office team in 1989. During my tenure, I have served in several different roles including corrections, road patrol, and motor unit deputy. Upon my promotion to Sergeant, I was assigned to various duty assignments before my promotion to my current rank of Lieutenant. My duty postings have given me a wonderful opportunity to work in every land-area served by PBSO. I am thrilled with this current chapter in my career. I truly enjoy working with the people, businesses, and governments that make up the town
