The City of Daytona Beach Shores has a unique way of delivering fire/rescue and police services. In 1991 the city merged its police and fire departments by cross-training all its officers, so they would be able to deliver any emergency service with no delay in communications. This Public Safety concept is not only better able to serve the residents of Daytona Beach Shores but has resulted in cost savings for the city. The faster response times have led to more lives saved and has allowed the city to deliver services in a more proactive manner.
The men and women who serve as officers and civilian employees in the Daytona Beach Shores Public Safety Department have a strong desire to serve and protect.
