About the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is full service law enforcement agency that employs over 3,400 people.  The department is organized into four large sections: Administrative Services; Support Services; Law Enforcement Operations; and, Corrections. 


The uniformed patrol aspect of the Law Enforcement Operations is organized geographically into ten districts, each commanded by a captain.  Additionally, within the Law Enforcement Operations of the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is sections such as Homeland Security, Narcotics, Special Investigations, Emergency Response (which includes aviation, marine, K9, etc.) and communications.


According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, “The Court Services Bureau is made up of four distinct units: Civil, Courtroom Security, Court Liaison, and Court Security. These units serve the courts, and of course, the public. As Executive Officer of the Court, it is the Sheriff's duty to carryout all the lawful orders of the Court as well as other duties as required by law. Among those duties, the Sheriff is required to attend either in person or by deputy all terms of the Circuit Court and County Court, and serve and execute "process" of the Supreme Court, the Circuit Court, the County Court, and the Board of County Commissioners. It is the Courtroom Security and Civil Units of the Court Services Bureau that carry out these legally mandated services. The Court Security Unit did not always exist; however, events in recent history have raised serious safety and security concerns. The Court Security Unit was established to address these concerns. The Court Security Unit provides twenty four hour security for the courts, but also for county government, the State Attorney offices, the Public Defender offices, and for the associated public parking facilities. The Court Liaison Unit is the vital link between the courts, attorneys, and the officer on the street. The Liaison assists in screening the paperwork needed for filing and forwarding subpoenas to the officer. Complimenting the Court Security Team is the Courthouse K-9 Unit and Courthouse Containment Team.”
