Emergency Decal

The “Emergency Decal” program establishes a vital partnership between local merchants and law enforcement.  This program is designed to provide a method to contact merchants in the event of an emergency after normal business hours without asking you to post personal and private information on the front of your business.  It also allows us to contact you for situations that are not normally monitored by an alarm system (ex: graffiti, loitering, theft, etc.).

The Sheriff’s Office maintains an electronic record of the information you provide and makes it available only to other local law enforcement agencies, fire fighters and EMS, not with the general public. You can request a new or replacement decal, as well as update or change your decal information in the event that information has changed, by contacting the Crime Prevention Unit at 850-606-3250 or by submitting  the form at the bottom of this page.  It’s as easy as that! You can also request that a deputy make contact with you by sending your business name, phone number and business address to
