The Orange County Sheriff’s Office finally plans reorganization to reduce violent crime; a band-aid approach. The daily news reports of violent crime and resident complaints on social media surely demonstrate this need, for many years now. My campaign platform includes Administrative & Operational Efficiency and reorganization that addresses the root of the problem, staffing shortages and low morale.

“reset the tone” for acceptable behavior
The prevailing perception in Orange County is that violent crime is on the rise, which is supported by historical crime data and low clearance rates reported to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Furthermore, even minor offenses such as reckless driving are being ignored, which adversely affects the livability of neighborhoods and poses an immediate threat to drivers and pedestrians when this criminal behavior occurs on our roadways.
It is imperative to reset the standards for acceptable behavior for both the community and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. Strong leadership is crucial, and electing a new Sheriff is a necessary step towards achieving this goal.
Unfortunately, deputies lost confidence in the current Sheriff, and their morale has been eroding since 2020, as evidenced by a scathing survey that led to the withdrawal of their endorsement. Low morale still persists today, leading to discontent and early retirements, which ultimately impedes crime prevention efforts and negates any potential benefit from hiring new deputies. Therefore, voting a new Sheriff into office is required to restore the morale of the Sheriff’s Office and provide the community with the safety and protection it deserves. Vote Bill Moore for Orange County Sheriff in August of 2024.
a seat at the table
The campaign logo shows employees and members of the community working together, with the Sheriff, to solve crime. By having a seat at the table, either in person or virtually, members of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, including deputies, as well as members of the community, will have the opportunity to express their perspectives and ideas with an open-minded approach to change, exploring new methods, and abandoning ineffective practices.
