Community Involvement

Community involvement is always welcomed at the Winter Springs Police Department and there are many different opportunities to get involved!

Citizen Advisory Committee

The Winter Springs Citizens Advisory Committee meets the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30 PM, at the Winter Springs Police Department. The CAC started in 1998 with about 5 citizens and has grown strong with over 50 members. The CAC is comprised of mainly of Homeowners Association board members, Neighborhood Watch members, and concerned citizens. The members of CAC meet with the Police Chief and his command staff. The Chief gives the monthly Departmental statistics and each Commander tells what is happening within their respective Bureaus. There is a roundtable discussion and each attendee of the meeting is given the opportunity to tell what is happening in their community or ask any questions. If you have any questions or would like to join us, please feel free to contact us at 407-327-1000.
