About Us

The Port Orange Police Department provides unparalleled protection for residents, businesses and property. This is evidenced by a per capita violent crime rate that is less than one-tenth the State average, and lower than any other city in Volusia County with a population over 57,000.

Ninety-one sworn officers, three sworn reserve officers, 17 non-sworn employees and more than 40 VIPS (Volunteers in Police Service) provide law-enforcement and animal control services throughout the City of Port  Orange.

As a pro-active and community-oriented agency, the Department subscribes  to a philosophy of "community policing" bolstered by "intelligence led  policing". By giving careful consideration to each reported crime  incident, the Department is able to maintain an accurate assessment of  the concerns of local residents. Officers are trained to be  client-oriented and to forge close bonds throughout the community.
