The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, commonly known by the acronym of PBSO, is the largest law enforcement agency in Palm Beach County, Florida.[2] With more than 4200 employees and 1,800 civilian volunteers, the agency [3] provides police services to more than 680,000 residents in the county's unincorporated areas and 235,000 residents in the 13 municipalities covered by PBSO. PBSO also oversees the county jail system, provides security at all four of the county courthouses, and is the primary law enforcement agency covering Palm Beach International Airport.


Palm Beach County has 39 municipalities, encompassing some 60 percent of the County population. The rest of the population live in unincorporated areas. Several municipalities have their own police departments while the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office contracts to provide law enforcement services to 13 of the 39 municipalities. The following cities contract with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office to provide law enforcement services: Lake Park, Belle Glade, South Bay, Pahokee, Greenacres, Wellington, Royal Palm Beach, Loxahatchee Groves, Mangonia Park, Westlake, Lake Worth Beach, South Palm Beach and Palm Beach Shores.

Communities served[edit]

Currently PBSO provides law enforcement services to four regional patrol bureaus, North, South, East and West.[4]

North Regional Bureau- North Palm Beach County

South Regional Bureau - South Palm Beach County

East Regional Bureau - Central Palm Beach County

West Regional Bureau - Western Palm Beach County

Jail facilities[edit]

There are two jail facilities operated by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. One is in Belle Glade, called the West Detention Center, which houses all custody levels from minimum to maximum security. At any one time it can contain up to 991 inmates (total bed capacity), with a staff of 188. The facility has a video visitation program which allows families to communicate with inmates remotely.[5]

The largest jail is the Main Detention Center.[2] Three towers make up the center, The South Tower, The East Tower, and The West Tower.[6] The largest is The South Tower, the building was constructed in 1993 from concrete and steel with a cost of $52 million.[6] The East and West Towers were built in 1983; they now flank the South Tower, completing the Main Detention Center.[6] The Main Detention Center's primary function is to hold high risk inmates, federal inmates, and those inmates who are in need of special medical attention and/or are unable to operate at other facilities.[6] The total number of beds at the facility is 2,166. The South Tower can hold 1,285 inmates, East Tower has 418 beds, and The West Tower has 404 beds.[6]


The Communications Division at PBSO consists of over 180 employees.[7] There are three dispatch and 911 call centers that operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year taking in over a million calls annually.[7] The main dispatch 911 call center is located at the PBSO Headquarters building on Gun Club Road in unincorporated West Palm Beach. The main center covers all eastern regions and districts and is the largest center with 5 of the main talkgroups dispatched out of this location. There are also two additional dispatch 911 call centers with one located at the Main Courthouse in Downtown West Palm Beach, which covers the Main Courthouse, Downtown Palm Beach County Governmental Complex and Palm Beach International Airport. The center located in Belle Glade at the PBSO western district complex covers the far western area of Palm Beach County to include Belle Glade, Pahokee, South Bay and the large unincorporated farming areas.

PBSO operates a Motorola countywide radio system with 8 main talk groups and 1 inquiry talk group for running names, license plates and drivers licenses, deputies also use this talk group to request rotation tow trucks and for general information. Each talk group has a dispatch monitored channel and a talk-around channel for unit to unit communications. The agency also has numerous specialty talk groups for special operations, SWAT, Narcotics, Gangs and Fugitive Warrants. The system was converted to a Project 25 Phase II TDMA modulation system in June 2018.

Texting to 911 is also an option for those who are deaf, hard of hearing, have a speech impediment, or are in an emergency situation where voice call is not possible.[7]

Domestic violence prevention[edit]

The Domestic Violence Unit consists of a sergeant, two detectives and 5 domestic violence advocates.[8] The advocates are trained to help and assist victims of domestic violence filing the petition and be with them throughout the legal process as support consultants.[8]

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Foundation

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Foundation is an independent, nonprofit, charitable organization that helps underprivileged children through such programs as Shop with a Cop, and supports law enforcement by covering, for example, the cost of a new dog for the Canine Unit.  The Foundation also enhances deputy safety by subsidizing new equipment that might otherwise be unattainable.  In addition, the Foundation assists PBSO employees during times of need.

The Foundation is run by a volunteer board of local leaders who connect private sector dollars with public safety solutions.  As the authorized organization to raise funds on behalf of the Sheriff’s Office, the Foundation serves as a vehicle for tax-deductible gifts and grants from individuals, businesses and philanthropies.  Emphasis is placed on community improvement and involvement.

Law enforcement foundations are neither new nor unique.  There are foundations all around the country that benefit a multitude of agencies. They come out of the reality that good law enforcement is not cheap, and budgets rarely keep up with what is needed to serve and protect at the highest level.  The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Foundation is focused on complementing the policing strategies of the Sheriff’s Office to ensure a high level of service to everyone who lives in, works in and visits Palm Beach County.

Palm Beach County is the size of Delaware, with a population of about 1.5 million residents and one of the largest Sheriff’s Offices in the country.  Supporting the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Foundation is a rewarding way to positively impact this large, diverse community we call home.  Any contribution is appreciated and is tax-deductible.

Please contact us if you have any questions.  Thank you.
