My Neighborhood Policing Division

Seminole Neighborhood Policing provides all uniformed patrol activities, conducts general investigations, and delivers a variety of safety and prevention services. In case of emergency or to report suspicious activity, please call 911. If you have a crime tip, please contact CrimeLine at 1-800-423-TIPS(8477).

Neighborhood policing is the concept under which deputy sheriffs, field service officers and civilian support staff are empowered to develop strategies, programs and crime prevention methods to reduce crime and the fear of crime in their service communities. SCSO is active in the county’s schools, attends and participates in local events, partners with residential groups and homeowner associations, and provides assistance to businesses, non-profit organizations, and other agencies. The SCSO takes a proactive approach to public safety, and follows the philosophy – and daily practice – of providing education, exchanging information and building awareness within the community to help prevent crimes before they occur.

The Sheriff’s Office patrol function is called Seminole Neighborhood Policing (SNP) and is sectioned into three regions, each commanded by a Lieutenant:
  • SNP East Region
    Comprised of the Geneva / Oviedo and Casselberry/Winter Springs communities

  • SNP North Region
    Comprised of Sanford and Longwood/Lake Mary communities

  • SNP South Region
    Comprised of the Altamonte Springs community
A region identifies an area of the County, which may include both incorporated and unincorporated sections and is identified by the city or community name which best describes its individuality. Within the identified regions, there are smaller geographic areas identified as Community Service Areas (CSA). Each CSA is assigned a Deputy Sheriff.

In addition to deputy sheriffs assigned to patrol, the regions house Field Service Officers, Traffic Safety Sections (Motor Units), and General Assignment Investigators who investigate property crime and missing persons.

Residents are encouraged to contact Region Lieutenants regarding issues of concern in their neighborhood.
(Note: please call 911 for an emergency or to report suspicious activity)
