Hello. My name is Kevin Brunelle and I serve as the Chief of Police for the City of Winter Springs Police Department. On behalf of all of the men and women of our entire department, welcome to our web page.
The Winter Springs Police Department is a force of both sworn officers and civilian personnel who come together as a team dedicated each and every day to serve our community by working together using a "proactive" philosophy to provide the best quality customer service to our residents, business owners, and tens of thousands of people who travel through and visit our city each day. Our police department is divided into three bureaus: Operations, Criminal Investigations, and Support Services.
Operations is the most visible component of the police department. Composed of Patrol, the Traffic Division, School Resource Officers, Crime Prevention, and the K-9 unit these officers are on patrol 24 hours a day, seven days a week in your neighborhoods and community working together to keep the criminal element from victimizing you and your family. Officers assigned to the Traffic Unit are responsible for the enforcement of traffic laws and assisting with traffic direction and control to keep our roadways some of the safest within Seminole County. School Resource Officers are assigned to several of our public schools to maintain a constant law enforcement presence to keep our children safe while they work on their education. Officers assigned to the K-9 unit work hand-in-hand with all of our officers, along with a canine partner, to find suspects, locate missing children and adults, and promote the police department at various community functions. All of these divisions work cooperatively to make our city one of the safest places to live, work, and find recreation within Seminole County. Members of the Community Services Division serve as a highly visible component in our community by participating in many neighborhood service programs, such as Movie Nights and the Citizen's Advisory Committee. Crime Prevention programs, Lockbox placements, and Neighborhood Watch are some of the other services available through the Community Services Division.
The Criminal Investigations Bureau has the task of assigning and investigating felony cases, gathering and evaluating criminal intelligence and working with state prosecutors to help convict the suspects who prey upon our community. All of the investigators assigned to the Criminal Investigations Bureau work cooperatively with the entire agency to ensure we are providing the highest level of service possible. The Criminal Investigations Bureau is a valuable and essential tool in the fight against crime. In addition to the active criminal investigation of cases, this bureau is responsible for the processing and storage of case evidence. The Crime Scene Technicians are able to respond to calls at the request of officers to help process extensive crime scenes and package evidence for processing at the crime lab. The Street Crimes Unit is also a component of the Criminal Investigations Bureau tasked with deterring street level crime ranging from narcotics cases to staking out burglary suspects.
The Support Services Bureau is responsible for the Code Enforcement, Records, Communications, Training, Building and Fleet maintenance, and Information Services. Code Enforcement Division members have the responsibility of making sure residents and business owners are compliant with city ordinances and codes. Code Enforcement is composed of both sworn police officers and civilian code enforcement officials who work with our community to achieve voluntary compliance when violations are noted. Through community education programs and services, the Code Enforcement Division strives to make Winter Springs one of the most aesthetically pleasing communities in Central Florida. Members of the Communications Division are available to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week to respond to your calls for service. They are the first-line of communication between the police department and our community. Communications personnel take information from callers in a professional and reassuring manner to send help where it is needed in the most efficient way possible. Information Services personnel are responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of all of the department's technology and data systems. These personnel are crucial for the efficient, smooth operation of the agency's day-to-day operation since computers are in integral component of the department in many areas. Records Division personnel are the members of the department who categorize and file all of our official reports and correspondence and serve walkup customers to our front counter. They are available to you during normal business hours to respond to your requests for public records or reports. Fingerprinting services are also available at our police department. Information on this program is available here.

We count on new suggestions and ideas about how we may better serve you every day. Please call us anytime we can help you. On behalf of the entire agency, thank you for your time and support.
