My name is Capt. Craig Turner, and I am honored to have been assigned as the Commander of District 17-Loxahatchee Groves. I have worked in Law Enforcement since 1998. I began my career with the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office and have worked for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office since 2000. I have served in several different roles throughout my career including community policing, property crimes, Violent Crimes Division and SWAT. I have also served in the Army National Guard and Army Reserves until my retirement in 2014 after 24 years of service. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from Florida Atlantic University in Criminal Justice Studies and a Master’s Degree from Florida State University in Criminal Justice Administration. I am excited to have this opportunity to work again in Loxahatchee Groves after spending 3 years here as a Sergeant.
District 17 encompasses approximately 13 square miles and has a direct service population of over 3,300 residents. District 17 is staffed with 5 Road Patrol Deputies. In addition, the district receives support from Community Policing, K-9, Aviation and the Traffic Division. The PBSO District 17 headquarters is located in the county building at 200 Civic Center Way, Suite 300, Royal Palm Beach.
We have an obligation to achieve results and are firmly committed to our stated goal of “providing the finest possible law enforcement services to those who reside in and visit our community.” Should ever need to contact me, please feel free to do so.
