Sheriff Jerry L. Demings (D) Orlando Election 2016

Re-elect Jerry Demings for Orange County Sheriff!

It has been my honor and privilege to serve as Orange County County Sheriff since 2008.
As your Sheriff, I shall continue to provide the necessary expertise and continuing stability to provide proven and trusted leadership in the agency.

During my tenure as Sheriff and Police Chief I have been successful at reducing crime, decentralizing patrol operations by opening new substations, instituting a take-home vehicle plan and placing computers in police cars.

I have been effective at reducing complaints on deputies, reducing use of force, deploying police body-worn cameras, implementing problem oriented policing, saving taxpayers nearly $9 million, managing  numerous crises including the Pulse Night Club massacres and managing through the recent recession.

I am seeking election for Orange County Sheriff in the county I was born and raised. It is here in this very same community that I have committed 35 years of my life in the realm of public safety and service to the community. And because this is my home, I will do everything necessary to maintain the quality of life that makes Central Florida, not only one of the world’s premier tourist destinations, but one of the finest places in the United States to live, work, and visit.

We are facing some difficult and challenging times in the public safety profession. It is very important for us to have an experienced and professional leader that ensures the citizens of Orange County receive the best possible public safety.

I want to thank you for your support and it will be an honor to serve as your Sheriff for another term. I look forward to your vote on November 8th, 2016!.

Experience matters.

Mayor Glenda Hood appointed Jerry Demings as Orlando Police Chief in 1998 due to his outstanding leadership and commitment to our community. As Orlando’s first African American Police Chief he was able to reduce crime and decentralize the agency by opening sub-stations in our community.

In 2008, he ran for Orange County Sheriff to continue his service to Central Florida and pledged to do what he did as the Orlando Police Chief…reduce crime and make our neighborhoods safer. Since we elected Jerry Demings as Sheriff in 2008, there has a been a reduction in violent crime by 22% as well as a reduction in overall crime in Orange County by 22%.

He has taken the fight to Washington, DC to secure funding that will provide the equipment  needed to keep our neighborhoods and families safe. Today, when a deputy answers a call, they do so with new computers, body worn cameras and with GPS devices to improve response times.

Sheriff Demings is serious about targeting high crime areas and has established  new substations on I-Drive and in  East Orange County. The remaining Orange County substations were renovated, which provided better access to our neighborhoods.

All of this was done while facing budget cuts. Due to his fiscal management, over $8.9 million dollars has been returned to Orange County Government over the last seven years.

Sheriff Jerry Demings…

  • Even though crime is down, we are working hard to reduce crime even further
