Hello! I’m Lieutenant Donnie Winston and I’m the District Commander for the Northwest District for the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. I have been serving with the Sheriff’s Office since 1995. During this time, I have worked as Patrol Deputy, FTO, Property Crimes Detective, Major Crimes Detective, Drug Agent, Drug Agent Supervisor, HIDTA Initiative Commander, Major Crimes Commander and now your Northwest District Commander.
The district is comprised of numerous communities to include: Northwest Ocala, the Town of Reddick, the Town of McIntosh, Orange Lake, Shiloh, and Blitchton. The Northwest District has several populated areas but is mostly made up of large horse and cattle farms. It is home to the Horses in the Sun (H.I.T.S) competition, which draws equestrians from all over the world.
There are currently 13 deputies assigned to the Northwest district to provide quality service for the residents of the county. There are also three volunteer groups within the district. These volunteers assist law enforcement by being the extra eyes and ears in our community to deter crime.
Our Northwest District office is located at 8311 North Highway 441 in Ocala, FL. Our office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. If you have any questions, concerns, suggestions, or you just want to stop by to say hello, please feel free to do so!
