The Orange County Sheriff’s Office is proud to introduce our newly designed website, intended to be user friendly and easy to navigate. We believe everyone should be able to find the information they need quickly and easily and we feel certain this format will allow you to do just that.


With all that being said we want to hear from you about ways we can improve our site because ultimately this is your Sheriff’s Office and you deserve the very best.

I want to express my sincere appreciation for the trust you have placed in me to serve as your Sheriff and I understand the awesome responsibility that comes along with the job.


The men and women of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office come to work each and every day knowing that I have high expectations of them as they deliver fair, responsive, accountable and professional law enforcement services to our residents and those who visit and travel through this great County.

We will continue to professionally execute the duties of our Office while collaborating with our neighboring law enforcement partners in an effort to maintain the highest level of service to those we serve.
