911 or Non-emergency?

We all know to call 911 in an emergency, but did you know there is a non-emergency number, 407-836-HELP (4357) for reporting suspicious activity, parking complaints or after-the-fact crimes (such as auto burglary)? Call 911 for immediate assistance with a crime in progress.

Autism Decal Program

orange county sheriff police report

What is it? The Orange County Sheriff's Office is committed to the safety of all of our residents. The more information deputies have when they respond to calls for service, the better they are able to meet our residents’ needs.

The mission of the OCSO Autism initiative is to alert Emergency Responders that there is a person with autism in the home or vehicle. The decals enable Orange County Sheriff’s deputies to draw on their autism training and understand that there is a person in the home or car that may not speak, respond to or comply with verbal commands, may hide, or wander off, or may have no awareness of danger.

The Sheriff's Office is providing these decals free of charge to anyone in unincorporated Orange County who wants to place them near the front door of their home or in the rear window of their car so law enforcement officers can be aware there is an occupant with autism.

Complaints involving misconduct by public officials or voting law may be reported in writing to the OCDA’s Special Prosecutions Unit. Report of misconduct on the part of law enforcement officers should be reported to the internal affairs or professional standards section of the law enforcement agency with which the officer is employed.
