Message From the Chief
Welcome to the Orlando Police Department website.
I am proud to command a nationally recognized law enforcement agency that is focused on the safety of our residents, visitors, and businesses. Our job is to protect the citizens of Orlando and we intend to accomplish that mission, even at risk to our own lives. We ask only for your assistance by calling 9-1-1 anytime you see something suspicious, or when someone needs help.
The men and women at the Orlando Police Department are some of the most dedicated and loyal public servants in this great nation, and we promise to serve you with Courage, Pride and Commitment.
I hope you see this website as an extension of our services – whether you are looking for information, becoming a police officer or finding community programs. I look forward to serving this great community and the Orlando Police Department.
John W. Mina
