Some interesting OCSO facts:
Annual budgets 2011 to 2012 $182,795,055
--- 2012 to 2013 $192,122,113
--- 2013 to 2014 $198,203,066.
The 2013 to 2014 budget goes 100% to operating costs.
Sheriffs salary, approx $160,000 per year.
Deputy salary, approx $40,000 per year.
Deputies respond to about 1.5 million calls for service each year.
The aviation unit flies about 2,500 hours per year.
The average response time for a low level call is about 15 minutes;
a call where a crime occurred but is over about 20 minutes;
a high priority call almost 6 minutes.
OCSO has been in a constant state of hiring for the past several years due to a poor retention rate (scores of deputies resign each year to work for other agencies and a smaller number of retirees).
