West Division

DLE Divisions

West Division

The West Division, under the leadership of Major Ken Hall, consists of the Northwest District and the Southwest District. Each District is commanded by a Captain who reports to the Division Commander.

The West Division geographically includes the Western portion of the county, and includes components in each district to deliver services to the people of Polk County residing or traveling in those areas: patrol platoons, Crime Suppression Teams, Community Oriented Policing Units, General Crimes Detectives, and Canine Teams.

The Crime Suppression Teams (CST) provide direct support to their communities in a variety of ways to address crime and social issues through community partnerships and different methods of service delivery. The General Crimes Unit (GCU) is located within each of the patrol districts. Detectives assigned to the GCU are responsible for conducting follow- up investigations on felony property crimes, and a number of felony person crimes.

There are also three contract cities in this division - Fort Meade, Mulberry, and Polk City.

Contract Cities

The Polk County Sheriff's Office is proud to provide municipalities the opportunity to utilize our services. Our contract cities take advantage of our winning formula for law enforcement, and they save time and money by eliminating the taxing administrative overhead of maintaining their own separate law enforcement agencies.
