Welcome to the District 11 – South Bay website. My name is Sergeant Johnny Ortiz and it is my honor to lead the dedicated men and women who serve our District 11 community.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is dedicated to delivering exceptional professional law enforcement service to all citizens throughout Palm Beach County; it is my personal goal to provide said services to the City of South Bay and the adjoining communities.
District 11 embraces the problem-solving policing philosophy and we actively seek ways to work with community partners to ensure a safe place to live and work. This can only be accomplished with your help. I urge you to contact me, or any of our dedicated staff, so we can address community issues together.
On behalf of District 11 personnel, we look forward to working with our valued citizens, business leaders, city leaders and other organizations to maintain the high quality of life in the City of South Bay.
