Broward Sheriff’s Office Captain Audrey Jones, head of the Civil Division, was one of 10 extraordinary women honored by the Lauderhill Regional Chamber of Commerce at the first Women of Distinction Breakfast. The women, recognized at the February 7 event, were lauded for their professional achievements and community contributions.

Captain Audrey Jones is a University of Florida graduate and began her law enforcement career 22 years ago at the Dade County State Attorney’s Office. She joined the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) in 1994 and later became a Special Agent for FDLE. In 2006, she became the first African-American female major with Florida Atlantic University Police Department. Since joining BSO in February 2013, Cpt. Jones has implemented numerous safety procedures for civil deputies and created the first ever Civil Symposium, which brought together civil divisions and clerk of courts throughout the state to share ideas and ways to improve civil procedures. Through her fresh and innovative perspective, Cpt. Jones also helped launch a beautification project, commissioning the skillful hands of students at Tequesta Trace Middle School to create a mural for the division. The visiting public now gets to admire the beautiful artwork, while the students proudly say their work is displayed at the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

Other honorees included: Florida State Representative Hazelle Rogers; Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief; City of Lauderhill Vice Mayor Margaret Bates; Broward County Judge, Hon. Ilona Holmes; Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Dr. Brenda Snipes; Broward County School Board Member, Dr. Rosalind Osgood; President and CEO of the Urban League of Broward County, Dr. Germaine Smith-Baugh; Jamaica National Building Society’s Chief Representative Officer Janice McIntosh; Lauderhill Police Department Major Constance Stanley and the Office of Economic and Small Business Development’s Community Relations and Outreach Manager Jasmine Jones.
