Behind every Sheriff’s Office green and white cruiser is a team of sworn and support staff members that the public may never see – but who are directly responsible for the professional and efficient operation of this agency.
The primary Operations Bureaus and Divisions are:
Patrol Operations Bureau
Which incorporates all Patrol functions in the Sheriff’s primary service area. Patrol also is the home for specialized units like SWAT, K-9 , Flight, Environmental Lands and the Marine Unit, and Community Policing.
Patrol Central District 727-582-6123
Patrol North District 727-582-6942
Investigative Operations Bureau
The agency’s criminal investigative units, court processing and court security fall under the Investigative Operations Bureau. The Child Protection Investigation Division (CPID) is also a very large component in this bureau. Pinellas County is one of the few counties in the state that provides Child Protection at the local level.
