Master Deputy Sheriff Joseph “Shane” Robbins

Dear Citizens,

It is my honor to serve as your Sheriff and work hand-in-hand with you to keep Polk County a great and safe place to live, work, raise a family, and visit on vacation.   As with all law enforcement agencies, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office has the essential duty to enforce the laws of our state and nation.  While it is our responsibility to enforce the laws, it is the job of our legislators to write them.  Every year, hundreds of new laws are proposed in the State of Florida.  However, not all of them are in the best interest of public safety. 

Polk County citizens consistently have made it abundantly clear in citizen opinion surveys, conducted by Dr. Susan McManus with the University of South Florida, that public safety services are “absolutely critical services.”  Many of the legislative proposals are good laws designed to better protect the public – and these deserve our support.  However, there are proposed laws that would be detrimental to the safety and protection of our citizens and to those who visit our county.

Please click on the below link for the legislative issues on which the Polk County Sheriff’s Office and the Florida Sheriff’s Association have taken a stance and following throughout the legislative session.  We thank you for your help as we support and oppose these issues.  I encourage you to take an active role in the legislative process.  

Let us continue to work together to keep Polk County safe!

Grady Judd
Sheriff
