Anchored by one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world (Orlando), the Orlando Regional Operations Center (OROC) provides investigative and forensic services to nine urban counties, including inland and Atlantic coastal areas. Besides its major theme parks, natural lakes and rivers, the OROC region encompasses the Kennedy Space Center and Port Canaveral, a gateway to major consumer and leisure markets. In this diverse environment, OROC is committed to the prevention and resolution of crime and maintaining awareness of public safety issues that have a direct impact on quality of life for the region’s 3.9 million residents and more than 50 million people who visit each year.
While investigative assistance to the region’s local / state law enforcement agencies and five judicial circuits covers a broad spectrum of criminal activity, OROC’s primary criminal investigations involve cases related to public integrity, economic crime, cyber/high tech crime, and domestic security. OROC also provides protection for Florida’s Governor and family as well as other dignitaries when they are visiting the region. The OROC crime laboratory provides forensic services to local law enforcement and state attorneys in the following forensic disciplines: Biology (DNA), Chemistry, Toxicology, Trace Evidence, Firearms and Digital Evidence.
