A Message from Sheriff Scott Israel


Each year when we celebrate the New Year, it brings the opportunity for change. In a vote of confidence by the citizens of Broward County, I have been humbled and privileged to have been elected to serve as the Sheriff of Broward County. Throughout my professional career, I have been faced with many tasks and challenges. Through every situation, I rose to meet those challenges and I am committed to doing the same as your Sheriff.

When we consider the responsibilities of the Broward Sheriff’s Office, the nation’s largest fully accredited agency, it’s important to remember its mission to protect and serve the public. Our goals going forward will be to establish a cohesive, productive and diverse working environment within the Agency and to build strong, long-term partnerships with the community. We will focus on crime prevention; crime control and enforcement; fire safety and awareness; and maintain the highest standards for employee education, training and professionalism. The members of my Command Staff will lead by example, upholding the State and Federal laws and be open, honest and fiscally responsible to the community we serve.

To the men and women of the Broward Sheriff’s Office, I respect and appreciate you and look forward to working with you. Your hard work, dedication and professionalism sets this Agency apart as a shining example in our Community. We will work together, in support of one another and for the benefit of the nearly two million people we serve in Broward County.

On behalf of the men and women of the Broward Sheriff’s Office, I wish you and your family a very Happy and Safe New Year! I look forward to serving you as the Sheriff of Broward County and together building a safer community.
