Lieutenant David Redmond
Ocklawaha District Commander
Hello, my name is Lt. David Redmond. I am your District Commander for the Ocklawaha District Office. I have been employed with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office since 1990 and have been honored to serve in such areas as Corrections, Patrol, Aviation, Crisis Negotiation and Forensics. I have a Master of Science degree in Criminal Justice from Saint Leo University.
The Ocklawaha District is comprised of twelve dedicated deputy sheriffs that work twenty-four hours to ensure your protection. We have one secretary that can assist you with copies and fingerprinting needs, which are provided at a minimal cost. The Ocklawaha COPS group, East River COPS group and Lake Watch are comprised of community volunteers willing to make a difference in their communities. They function under the command of the Ocklawaha District. Our district office is located at 13985 East County Road 25.
The Ocklawaha District covers a large area to include residents residing in Summerfield, Belleview, Ocklawaha, East Lake Weir, Umatilla, Big Scrub and Altoona. The district covers the many lakes and wilderness trails citizens enjoy for recreational purposes.
All members of the Ocklawaha District strive to ensure your safety, protection and quality of life. If there are any concerns, please do not hesitate to call or come see me.
