Chief's Corner


Message from the Chief


After 43 years in law enforcement career and the past 10 years of having the honor to serve as your Police Chief, I am retiring on Oct 6th.    My 10 years as Chief has given me the opportunity to work with some of the finest law enforcement professionals in the State of Florida and the privilege to work for a very supportive community.  

My retirement is bitter sweet.  I will miss the day to day involvement and, yes, some of the stressful moments.  However, I look forward to traveling and some down time and not on a set schedule as I have been for many years.

This would not be a complete “From the Chief’s Desk” without me reminding you to lock your vehicle doors, remove all valuables from sights and secure your garage doors and homes.   Also, as our roads become busier we all need to drive defensively and with patience and courtesy. 

Working together we can keep our Oviedo community a safe place to live, work and raise our families. 


Thank you Oviedo for a fabulous 10 years as Chief of Police. 


Chief Jeffrey Chudnow
