News from BSO


The Broward Sheriff's Office will have a new satellite facility in Tamarac thanks to Publix.

On Thursday, October 31, 2002 at 9:00 a.m., officials from the Broward Sheriff's Office and the Publix grocery store chain plan to cut the ribbon and officially open the latest BSO office.

Located at 5881 North University Drive, the structure will provide deputies with another area from which they can work. It also increases BSO’s visibility in the community and acts as a deterrent to crime.

Publix and BSO began talking about the idea of the satellite office about eight months ago. Funded entirely by the grocery store giant, it wasn’t long before construction began.

Painted in the green and gold colors of the Broward Sheriff's Office, the small, air-conditioned structure houses some basic furniture, office equipment, and a telephone.

The addition of this facility brings to 26, the number of satellite work sites throughout Broward County available to BSO deputies.

Additionally, Publix is donating a VCR and video multi-plexer machine to BSO’s Tamarac district. The multi-plexer allows for easier viewing of numerous images captured on as many as 16 cameras as part of a video surveillance system.

The Broward Sheriff's Office is the largest fully accredited sheriff’s office in the nation, serving 15-districts with law enforcement and operating four jails in Broward County.
