About the Escambia Sheriff’s Office:

The Escambia Sheriff’s Office and its team of uniformed patrol and detention deputies provide law enforcement services to more than 300,000 Escambia County residents.  The Escambia Sheriff’s Office has more than 1100 sworn and civilian personnel.


To help officers keep abreast of the ever-changing law enforcement technologies and techniques the Escambia Sheriff’s Office offers on-going training opportunities. Initially, officers go through the Field Training Program which consists of a four-phase, 44-day curriculum to train new deputies in the policies and procedures of the Escambia Sheriff’s Office. Continuing in-house training programs are offered and designed to enhance officer’s skills and knowledge and to meet mandatory retaining requirements of the State of Florida. The Escambia Sheriff’s Office also offers a tuition reimbursement program to assist employees in furthering their career interests through area educational institutions. Additionally, a fully equipped health/fitness facility is furnished to help officers reach and maintain their peak physical condition.


Situated in Northwest Florida on the tip of the Florida Panhandle, Escambia County offers an enviable lifestyle. The beautiful Gulf of Mexico and its local bays with blue-green waters bordered by sugar-white beaches offer many recreational opportunities. Freshwater is also abundant with creeks and rivers winding through the area. Our mild climate makes it easy to enjoy the outdoors with an annual average temperature of 72 degrees and sunshine on an average of 344 days per year.


Residents also enjoy many other benefits. The county has an excellent public school system, a vocational school, community college, and a four-year state university. Three major hospitals, with physicians representing every major specialty, provide quality healthcare services. Affordable housing is widely available and the low cost of living enables residents to enjoy a comfortable lifestyle. Thanks to Florida’s broad tourism base, there is no state income tax.


Escambia County is the western-most county of Florida, bordered by Alabama to the north, the Gulf of Mexico to the south, Perdido River to the west and Escambia River to the east. The county encompasses 662 square miles which includes two barrier islands. The county seat is the City of Pensacola.
