The City of Orlando is dedicated to public safety. A three year plan for public safety includes dedicating 75 new police officers and an unprecedented increase in tools, technology and training. Resources are allocated when available to ensure that Orlando residents have safe and secure neighborhoods but need the help of individuals to help in their communities.
