A proposed $407 million to Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Fire Rescue: How your tax dollars could be spent

If Orange County commissioners give final approval to a $4 billion budget proposed Tuesday, the Sheriff’s Office and Fire Rescue Department plan to create jobs, raise salaries, build new facilities and pay for new programs.

On Tuesday, commissioners gave an initial OK to the 2017-2018 budget, which included nearly $407 million for the two agencies.

Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs said in a statement that the $234 million for the Sheriff’s Office and $173 million for Fire Rescue would go toward “keeping up with growth, maintaining acceptable response times, and simultaneously ensuring the safety of citizens.”

“Public safety remains our number one priority, as tragic events like last year’s Pulse shooting are reminders of our sacrosanct duty to protect our citizens and visitors, including our first responders,” Jacobs said.
