Captain Osvaldo “Ozzy” Tianga is a 20-year veteran of the Broward Sheriff’s Office. He began his law enforcement career at the Broward Sheriff’s Office in November of 1997 – first as a detention deputy within the jail, and shortly thereafter as a patrol deputy within the Department of Law Enforcement. While working patrol, Capt. Tianga quickly distinguished himself due to his perseverance and ingenuity in crime suppression and was soon promoted to detective.

In 2010, Capt. Tianga was promoted to the rank of Sergeant, where he supervised uniformed road patrol and district Crime Suppression Teams (CST). He also supervised specialized units within the Strategic Investigations Division – overseeing thirteen local, county, state, and federal agencies within the Metro Broward Drug Task Force (MBDTF), and assisting in the implementation of the agency’s first Violence Intervention Protective Enforcement Response (VIPER) Unit.

In 2015, Capt. Tianga was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant. As a lieutenant, he served as shift commander or uniform patrol and oversaw the CST within the City of Deerfield Beach. Capt. Tianga also developed the Deerfield Beach Tactical Deployment Team (TDT), which was tasked with targeting and suppressing gang activity, street level crime, and quality of life issues through proactive enforcement and community policing.

Additionally, Capt. Tianga serves as the agency’s synthetic drug expert – regularly conducting training, participating in community outreach events, and providing interviews to local, national, and international media outlets regarding synthetic drug trends.

Capt. Tianga holds a Master of Public Administration degree from Barry University, and he has completed in excess of 1000 hours of specialized law enforcement and emergency management training. His distinguished public service has been recognized time and time again with numerous awards and honors.
