Lock Box Program

The Lock Box Program is intended to provide Police, Fire and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) access to your residence in the event of an emergency where you are unable to open the door. A key to your residence will be stored in a secure metal storage device, similar to a realtor's lock box, near the entrance to your residence. The access code to the lock box will only be available to Police, Fire or EMS personnel and used only during an emergency.

Operation Medicine Cabinet

A drug amnesty drop box has been placed in the lobby of the Winter Springs Police Department which will allow you to drop off any unwanted medications 24 hours a day 7 days a week with no questions asked. This will provide an opportunity for the citizens to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications for proper destruction. These types of drugs are a potential risk to public health and safety and the police department is committed to the safe disposal of these drugs.

MED-ID for First Responders

The purpose of this form is to provide an easily accessible method for First Responders to access important medical information upon their arrival to a scene. The form consists of an informational card that you fill out that contains pertinent medical information. This card is then placed in the supplied brightly colored magnetic pouch and placed in a highly visible area of your home. The pouches and initial cards can be picked up from the Winter Springs Police Department or by contacting a Community Services Officer at 407-327-7565. Additional forms may be printed by accessing:
