Mission Statement:

The prime function of the Melbourne Beach Police Department is the preservation of peace and order, the prevention and detection of crime, the apprehension of offenders, the protection of persons and property under the laws of the State of Florida, the ordinances of the Town of Melbourne Beach, and the performance of a multitude of tasks relating to public welfare and safety.

Our mission is to promote and maintain an atmosphere of safety and security within our community through highly skilled employees, dedicated to the protection of constitutional guarantees, the maintenance of order, and the safeguarding of life and property.

The Melbourne Beach Police Department was created in 1947. In the beginning there was just one Police Officer, Chief Orval Gardenour serving a population of 100 hearty souls. The Chief answered calls for service 24 hours a day driving his 1938 Hudson. Apprehending turtle poachers and helping tourists dig their cars out of the sand was all in a days work.

As the demand for services increased the department expanded and currently consists of Chief Duncan, 2 Sergeants, 1 Corporal, 5 Officers and 1 Administrative Assistant. Melbourne Beach Police Department is a full service law enforcement agency providing service 24/7.

The Melbourne Beach Police Department is connected to the "9-1-1" emergency system and calls are dispatched through a regional dispatch center.
