Osceola County – The Osceola County Investigative Bureau (OCIB) is a multi-agency task force, which investigates vice, narcotics, and organized crime. In partnership with the State Attorney’s Office, the bureau consists of agents from the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, Kissimmee Police Department and the Saint Cloud Police Department, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and the Florida Highway Patrol. Through their investigative and enforcement efforts, OCIB is able to seize funds in certain cases. The OCIB Charitable Contribution Committee was developed in an effort to distribute the seized funds taken from mostly drug dealers, in a way that can best serve our community, to include providing funds to drug treatment facilities in order to help citizens recover from drug addiction.
On Wednesday, December 16, 2020, at 10:00 A.M., these agencies along with Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson, will hold a joint press conference detailing OCIB, its history, how the seized funds will be utilized and distributed, and the efforts that are being taken in Osceola County to combat illegal narcotics and the Opioid Crisis. The press conference will be held at the courthouse steps of the Osceola County Courthouse, located at 2 Courthouse Square, Kissimmee, FL 34741.
