Welcome to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office website where our goal is to provide a user-friendly tool that provides the public important information about our agency and its operations. We will offer daily crime and arrest reports, domestic violence and sexual assault information, sexual offender and predator identification, on-line neighborhood crime mapping tools, crime prevention tips, news and traffic and weather advisories, budget documents and more. As Sheriff, I feel it is imperative to do all we can to give our citizens more insight and a better understanding of our public safety mission. As you’ll see on this site, we are strong advocates of social media outlets such as Facebook as well, to communicate with you and to receive your valuable feedback.
The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office serves and protects nearly 200,000 year-round residents as well as hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, with approximately 250 sworn personnel and ninety civilians. As Sheriff, I am not only honored to serve alongside these men and women to combat crime, I also feel privileged to have such a wonderful community to call home.
