For Hometown News

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office is on the move.

The agency is relocating its district headquarters that's responsible for law enforcement services in the portion of northeast Volusia County that's under the jurisdiction of the Sheriff's Office.

Referred to as District 3, the office is on Third Street in Holly Hill. On Thursday, Dec. 19, the Volusia County Council approved a lease agreement for a new site about nine miles to the north, at 1435 N. U.S. 1 in Ormond Beach. The move is expected to take place in May.

The Sheriff's Office has been shopping around the northeast quadrant of the county for a new office that's more centrally located to the residents it serves. About 80 personnel, including patrol deputies, investigators, office and command staff, and school crossing guards work out of the District 3 office.

The new lease, which begins on May 15, is for 10 years, with options for two 5-year renewals. About $350,000 will be spent renovating the site to meet the Sheriff's Office's needs. A total of $200,000 of the renovation funds will come from assets seized in criminal cases. The rest has been incorporated into the rent schedule, which starts in the first year at $6,097 per month.
