About the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office:

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office is dedicated to preserving the peace, protecting residents and their property, enforcing all laws and detecting and preventing crime. With approximately 462 sworn positions, 457 civilian employees, 300 volunteers and an annual operating budget of $61.9 million, the men and women of the Sheriff's Office strive to maintain the highest professional standards while delivering a full range of community-based law enforcement and crime prevention programs to the citizens of Volusia County. In addition to our jurisdiction throughout unincorporated Volusia, the Sheriff's Office also provides law enforcement services on a contract basis in Deltona, DeBary and Pierson.


Law enforcement services are based out of District offices in DeBary, Deltona, DeLand, Holly Hill and New Smyrna Beach, substation in Pierson and a centrally-located Operations Center that combine to provide a wide range of patrol and criminal investigative services. A full range of crime prevention and public safety programs also have been integrated into the five District offices to make these services more convenient and accessible to the citizens we serve. The Sheriff's Office also operates a variety of highly-trained specialized units, including narcotics, auto theft, crime analysis, intelligence, major case and juvenile investigations, sex crimes, elder crimes, victim advocate, traffic, aviation, bomb disposal, equestrian, dive team, K-9, marine unit, SWAT Team and homeland security. Following the terrorist events of September 11, 2001, the Sheriff’s Office accepted responsibility for providing law enforcement services at Daytona Beach International Airport


Crime prevention and youth education are a major focus of the Sheriff's Office's efforts to deter criminal acts. Current programs range from School Resource Officers, school-based drug education classes (D.A.R.E.), Weed & Seed and a Citizen Observer Program to School Crossing Guards, Project Harmony, gang resistance education, Character Counts! and a Police Athletic League.


The Sheriff's Office's Support Services Division, one of three operating Divisions in the agency, is responsible for communications, evidence, fleet management, information systems and training. The Judicial Services Division encompasses a variety of court and judicial services, including courtroom security, extraditions, prisoner transport and the service of all subpoenas, writs and other official court papers throughout Volusia County. The Sheriff's Office also is responsible for operating the Emergency 911 system for Volusia County and additionally provides police dispatching services on a contractual basis to the Cities of Orange City, Lake Helen, Oak Hill, Holly Hill, South Daytona, DeLand, Daytona Beach and Daytona Beach Shores.





Michael Dye is a 21 year veteran of law enforcement.  Currently, he is sergeant with the Volusia County Sheriff’s Department.  His book, “The PeaceKeepers: A Bible Study for Law Enforcement,” asks the question - "How can I be both a cop and a Christian?"


According to the Michael’s book, police officers work in a world where there is constant struggle between good and evil. More than any other public service profession; those in the field of law enforcement are in a unique position to make a spiritual difference in the lives of both co-workers and citizens whom they encounter. However; without a firm spiritual foundation, the stress found in a law enforcement career can drag the police officer down emotionally thus leading to stress in the family, divorce, addiction, and in extreme cases even suicide.


The PeaceKeepers: A Bible Study for Law Enforcement “is designed to be used by individual law enforcement officers and small groups. It is written by a Christian law enforcement veteran using real life situations that all police officers can appreciate. By using biblical quotes and spiritual references, the Peacekeepers study helps you discover and understand God's purpose for your life and career. Chapter topics include issues such as work stress, becoming spiritually connected, developing a stronger marriage and family, and being a sound witness for Christ.”
