District 3 – North County

Greetings,

It is an honor and privilege to be assigned as the Commander of District 3, North County area of the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. District 3 is one of the larger unincorporated policing areas serving a large diverse population of residents and visitors to our county. District 3 encompasses approximately 102 square miles from Belvedere road north to the Martin County line and in some locations extending west from the Atlantic Ocean to just east of the Village of Royal Palm Beach and the Acreage. These geographic distinctions accentuate unique opportunities to live close to the ocean, or in urban, suburban and rural settings.

Mutual trust between the community and law enforcement is a key element in reducing crime, establishing a sense of safety in neighborhoods, and overall quality of life. The men and women assigned to District 3 are consummate law enforcement professionals. The deputies, detectives, supervisors, and non-sworn personnel are among the best county-wide. Every day they put their uniforms on with pride and report to work in your community to continue enhancing the relationships developed by Community Policing and Problem Oriented Policing initiatives. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office has invested time, training, and other resources to ensure as an agency we deliver timely, professional, and competent law enforcement services to all those that request assistance. District 3 will continue and enhance the developed partnerships between PBSO and the various citizens we serve.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Please feel free to contact me, my executive officer Lieutenant Eric Monath, or any District 3 staff at 561-688-4900 with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Captain Pedro Palenzuela
Commander, District 3
