Welcome to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office District 5 website. My name is Captain Ed Luty and it is my pleasure to serve as the Commanding Officer for the Glades. My staff and I are honored that the tri-cities have chosen to partner with the Sheriff’s Office so that through teamwork, we can strive to make the community a safe and enjoyable place to live, work and visit.
