Sheriff Mark AmosTo the Citizens of Orange County

I would like to thank you for putting your trust in me to serve as your Sheriff. I have been serving as Sheriff since August of 2007. My law enforcement service to Orange County began in 1987 as a patrol deputy, and from there, I worked my way up the ranks to the position of Chief Deputy, prior to becoming your Sheriff.

About the Sheriff's Office
