Daytona Beach Shores, FL 32118
In 1991, The City became the first community in Volusia County to adopt a Public Safety program by merging the police and fire departments. The program has won wide support because it saves the City an estimated $100,000. a year while providing prompt emergency assistance.
Residents receive a response to an emergency call in an average of little more than 2 minutes. To maintain that level of service, officers regularly undergo training to be certified for police, fire and emergency medical duties. The City currently has 35 sworn officers with 7 paramedics on staff.
Not everyone can be a Public Safety Officer. A Public Safety Officer is required to be physically fit, alert and always must exercise good judgment, often with very little time to analyze available options. An officer must have command of verbal and written communication skills and remain calm during emergencies. The hours are sometimes long and the responsibilities are many. Men and women who enter this profession do so from a strong desire to serve others and a commitment to protect innocent members of our society.
