    Community Operations Division

    Community Policing Unit

    Community policing is law enforcement philosophy that focuses on crime and social disorder through the delivery of police services which includes aspects of traditional law enforcement, prevention, problem-solving, community engagement and partnerships. Community policing balances reactive responses to calls for service with proactive problem-solving, centered on the causes of crime and disorder. Community policing requires law enforcement and citizens to join together as partners in the course of both identifying and effectively addressing these issues.

    School Resource Unit

    The School Resource program is a collaborative effort between the Martin County Sheriff’s Office and the Martin County School District, which places law enforcement officers in schools with the goal of creating and maintaining a safe and secure learning environment for students, teachers, and staff. There are currently 12 deputies assigned to the SRO Unit, with one deputy in each high school. Middle schools, alternative school, and special needs schools throughout the county have one or more deputies that service the school. The elementary schools are serviced by deputies assigned to the middle schools and an additional deputy, Tony Dalem, who teaches the D.A.R.E. Program full-time.

    Animal Services Unit

    The Sheriff’s Office Animal Services Unit is responsible for the enforcement of County Ordinances and State Statutes which relate to animals for the entire county area, to include the City of Stuart. This responsibility falls on Supervisor Karen Kneubehl, Animal Control Officers Michelle Thonney, Kimberly Guile, Heather Belknap, Dawn Hicks and Jordan Grose.

    Crossing Guards

    The 31 Martin County Sheriff’s Office School Crossing Guards serve our 14 public schools. They are responsible for the safety of children crossing public streets to attend school. The most important goal is the prevention of vehicle and pedestrian crashes. Crossing guards also help educate students on the importance of bicycle helmets and how to walk safely.

    Volunteer Team

    The Martin County Sheriff’s Office has a thriving Volunteer Team. Citizens of the county may join the Sheriff’s Office Volunteer Team and assist Sheriff’s Office personnel in clerical, data entry, reception, fingerprinting, civil process, special events, BBQ Grill Team and parking enforcement – just to name a few.

    Uniform Patrol Division

    Uniform Road Patrol

    Uniform Patrol, commonly referred to as “road patrol”, is on duty 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. Four shifts rotate this coverage and include those sheriff’s deputies on the 100, 200, 300 & 400 Shifts. Each shift has K-9 and aviation teams assigned to them, as well as a Watch Commander, who is directly responsible for all field operations in Martin County.

    Traffic Enforcement Unit

    The Traffic Enforcement Unit is a group of highly trained deputies assigned to patrol all roadways of Martin County. These deputies target and observe drivers committing crimes and violations such as Reckless Driving, Careless Driving, Move-Over (for Emergency Vehicles) Law violators, Texting while driving, Left-Lane Driving violations, Excessive Speed and other moving violations. These crimes happen all the time but offenders cannot always be observed by the deputy sheriff driving the traditional patrol vehicle because most aggressive drivers usually drive properly when in the presence of a marked patrol vehicle.

    Reserve Unit

    The Martin County Sheriff’s Office Reserve Unit is comprised of volunteer Deputy Sheriffs who assist and augment full-time sworn Deputies. Reserve Deputies are active members of the community who are trained to act in a limited capacity as a Deputy Sheriff. They wear the same uniform and drive the same vehicles as full-time sworn Deputies. Reserve Deputies are certified through the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE)/Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission (CJSTC) and have completed a shortened version of the police academy. They receive ongoing training in all aspects of law enforcement functions and work alongside full-time sworn Deputies. Whether assisting Uniform Patrol during regular shift patrol or, helping specialized units, such as Community Policing, the Marine Unit, Traffic Enforcement Unit, Community Operations, or at county athletic events, they are always busy. It takes a genuine, long-term commitment to be a Reserve Deputy Sheriff with the Martin County Sheriff’s Office.

    Parking Enforcement Unit

    The goal of the Parking Enforcement Unit is to reduce the frequency of illegal parking in the spaces requiring a special disabled permit, areas designated for emergency vehicle use, fire lanes, posted no parking zones and other restricted parking locations.

The Major Crimes Unit utilizes a collaborative framework to proactively yet efficiently and expeditiously solve cases and ensure successful prosecution through the State Attorney’s Office.

    Warrants Unit

    The unit is responsible for the handling of all extraditions of fugitives arrested outside the State of Florida who have fled in order to avoid prosecution for crimes committed in Martin County.

This allows these detectives to travel outside the jurisdictional boundaries of Martin County in order to facilitate the arrest and return of fugitives.
