About Citrus County Sheriff's Office
The Citrus County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) is a full-service law enforcement agency serving Citrus County, Florida. Citrus County is located on the west-central coast of the U.S. state of Florida. Citrus County has two incorporated municipalities, the City of Crystal River and the City of Inverness, making the CCSO the only law enforcement agency in the county. The county seat is Inverness, and its largest community is Homosassa Springs.
We humbly serve over 150,000 residents and the more than 530,000 people who visit our county every year. Let’s face it; Citrus County is a great place to live, work, and play. That is why our teammates at CCSO enthusiastically embrace our mission of Excellence in Public Safety and vigorously pursue our vision to make Citrus County the Safest Community in Florida.
Our core values are Integrity, Service above Self, and Loyalty above All. The members of our community deserve nothing less, and we plan to provide them nothing short of these morally sound pillars. The work that the loyal men and women of the CCSO put in day after day, night after night, 24/7 around the clock, speaks volumes about our dedication to protect and serve.
In 2019, deputies made 6,351 arrests and conducted 34,519 traffic stops. Our office received 205,390 total calls for service in comparison to 175,353 calls in 2018. Those are the calls of our citizens needing our help, and those calls were answered whether it was for a deputy to respond or a citizen needing help obtaining a copy of a record. Speaking of response, we unwaveringly listen to the concerns of our citizens and integrate those very needs into our operations. We do so because our community members are also the eyes and the ears of our operations. We welcome their help to make our county the safest place to call home.
