The Behavioral Response Unit is a Co-Responder Model program in which trained mental health clinicians from Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health are paired with Orange County deputies to respond to calls for service involving mental health crisis. The clinicians are mental health professionals and the deputies all are Crisis Intervention Trained (CIT), and have undergone 40 hours of Crisis Intervention Team training.
LGBTQ Safe Place
The mission of the OCSO Safe Place Initiative is to provide the LGBTQ community with easily accessible safety information and safe places throughout the city they can turn to if they are the victim of crime or student bullying.
Buying or selling something online and need to meet to make a transaction? Please take advantage of our E-Commerce Exchange Zone spaces in front of our North entrance at 2500 W. Colonial. If someone won't meet you at a law enforcement agency, that's a red flag!

Community Crime Prevention Award

Trust and Transparency
The Orange County Sheriff's Office is committed to reducing crime and the fear of crime while maintaining the highest levels of integrity and treating members of the public with dignity and respect. Sheriff John Mina is committed to reviewing our policies with input from the community and making necessary changes.
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
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.

About Reporting a crime
In most cases, crimes must be reported to the police department or law enforcement agency that has jurisdiction over the city or county where the crime occurred.
Crimes involving consumer fraud or the unlawful discharge of hazardous materials may be reported to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office (OCDA) Consumer and Environmental Protection Unit. 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.
In the event of an emergency, dial 911. You will be connected with law enforcement personnel who will assist you with the emergency.
