A Message From the Sheriff

Dear Friends,

I want to take this opportunity to welcome the citizens of Palm Beach County and other visitors to The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office official website. I sincerely hope you will easily find the information you are looking for as you explore the many services we provide to the public. Since taking office as Sheriff in January 2005, it has been one of my goals to be more informative to the public through the use of modern technology. To achieve this, we are constantly working to make this website more user friendly and enlightening. Another one of my goals is to implement a strong Community Policing effort throughout the county so that we are more visible and responsive to special needs in all areas. A high level of public satisfaction and input are our greatest assets when we look to expand and improve any area of the Sheriff’s Office.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office has over 4,000 dedicated and professional employees waiting to help you in any way. As you visit with us here and meet some of them, I am confident you will see what an excellent team we have to address all of your needs. Together we will achieve the goal of being one of the most modern and advanced agencies in the country. I am deeply committed to providing this agency with the tools and resources to be effective and responsive, so that at the end of the day, we can say we delivered the best service possible to the people of this county.

This agency will be built on a foundation of trust and performance achieved through the setting of goals and the willingness to adapt. New ideas are not only welcome; but they are a necessity to guarantee our success in the future. I will always seek out and listen to suggestions for improvement and enhancement in the delivery of service to the citizens of Palm Beach County. Please feel free to contact us at any time with your ideas and suggestions about ways to improve our service to the community. I look forward to the coming years as we work together to make every year better than the one before it and I will need your continued help and input to make that a reality, and remain your Sheriff in the future.

I sincerely hope you will easily find the information you are looking for as you explore the many services we provide to the public.
