A Message from Sheriff Scott Israel:

Providing top-quality service to the residents of Broward County is one of the top priorities of the Broward Sheriff’s Office. Whether it’s a prompt response to a 911 emergency call or the many ways our first responders go above and beyond to provide helpful support, we are constantly striving to make the lives of those we serve better, safer and easier.

As part of our ongoing efforts, BSO is launching a much-improved sheriff.org. At BSO, we are always at the forefront of emerging trends and technologies. That is why we were one of the first public safety agencies in the nation to maintain a true online presence. Through the last two decades, many residents have come to rely on sheriff.org and our online social media pages for a variety of services and resources. Now, we are getting even better!

With many improvements, the new sheriff.org is keeping a lot of the features you love, but we redesigned the website to make it cleaner to navigate and easier on the eye – and we added a plethora of beautiful photographs. More importantly, we are making it far more user-friendly and easier to find what’s important to you.

With one click, visitors to our website can do everything from requesting a report, to filing a commendation or complaint. You can also visit our crime mapping feature that allows you to track where crimes are occurring nearby (and keep tabs on registered sex offenders and predators living in your neighborhood). We are also making it far easier to find information about your local BSO district offices, civil procedures and our jails.

Looking for a job? Look no further than the top of the homepage to discover all the amazing opportunities available at BSO and even apply online from the comforts of your own home. And, yes, we are hiring.

Our commitment to connect better with the diverse communities we serve continues through our webpage, where we added features intended to unite and strengthen Broward. Now, users can easily keep on top of upcoming BSO events, such as shred-a-thons and grocery giveaways that visitors might not otherwise know about. You can find our calendar of events featured prominently on our homepage. We also added a tab on the website where you can read about BSO’s signature community outreach initiatives, including Uniting Broward, body-worn cameras, community policing and civil citations.

Of course, protecting our communities and keeping us safe remains our primary mission. Through our new community resources link, we are constantly adding educational brochures and information on a variety of public safety topics, including how best to protect yourself from identity theft, sexual assault, burglary and bullying. You can also find vital public safety tips and messages in the featured video section on our homepage.

I am thrilled at all the amazing improvements we are making online and invite you all to visit and explore our improved sheriff.org website.
