On June 12, 2016, in the aftermath of the mass shooting and domestic terror attack at Pulse Nightclub Orlando, Mayor Teresa Jacobs declared a state of emergency with Florida Gov. Rick Scott to coordinate the allocation of resources with Orange County and the City of Orlando to meet the needs of the emergency. Under this directive, all state, regional and local governmental agencies, including law enforcement, fall under the direct command and coordination of the State Coordinating Officer, which is the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Richard Swearingen. The Executive Order lasts for thirty days unless extended by the governor.
On behalf of Orange County, our thoughts and prayers are with the Pulse Nightclub Orlando victims, the injured and their loved ones who have endured one of the darkest and most difficult days in the history of Orange County. All flags at Orange County Government facilities are at half-staff in memory of those who were lost in this incomprehensible and unimaginable act of mass murder.
