Your Field Services West District is comprised of Five Zones, these zones encompass the unincorporated areas of Lynn Haven, Panama City, Southport, West Bay and the 18.39 square mile area of Panama City Beach.
The West District has Alpha
and Bravo Platoons who maintain 24 hour coverage of these zones working twelve
hour shifts under the command of a Shift Lieutenant and supporting
supervisors. There are now additional
dedicated personnel assigned to each zone who are not rotated through other
zones. Because the West District has the added responsibility of surf rescue
all patrol members are life guard certified and equipped for water rescue.
The District has a satellite
office on Panama City Beach, housed within this office are dedicated officers
from Criminal Investigations Division, Special Investigations Division and
Field Services Division. The benefit of having this satellite office include
shortened response time, increased cooperation, streamlined supervision,
increased zone coverage and better water rescue.
The West district is unique in that it maintains law enforcement response for the ever growing tourist corridor of Panama City Beach, the rural areas in the north and the larger cities centered in the County.
The West District is ever ready to ensure public safety and order, suppress unlawful conduct, protect human and constitutional rights, and provide traffic control by continuing to raise the standard of Law Enforcement for the public we serve.
