Meet Seminole County Sheriff's Deputy Debbie Galutz.

Maxine Oliver, director of Campus Safety and Security, says Galutz will provide a visible presence on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus, and work closely with the College's security officers.

Galutz, one of two campus deputies who will serve at the campus, was transferred to Seminole State as the College expands its longtime partnership with the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.

She also will provide crime prevention sessions collegewide, starting this fall, Oliver says. Her office is in building J.

Galutz, a Seminole State alumna, has nearly 20 years of experience with the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, starting as a dispatcher in 1996. She began her career as a law enforcement professional in 2001.

From 2008-13, she was an investigator assigned to the Domestic Security Division, Pawn & Property Recovery Unit. In 2012, Galutz was named Investigator of the Year by the Florida Law Enforcement Property Recovery Unit (FLEPRU) and was nominated for the National Retail Federation Investigator of the Year.

In 2013, Galutz transferred to the Specialized Services Unit as a Property Crimes investigator. Since 2013, she has served as a member of the Board of Directors for FLEPRU, covering the Central Florida District 5 Region. 

She is a certified FDLE instructor and teaches CPR to fellow employees.

In addition to her degree from Seminole State, she also received a bachelor’s degree in Legal Studies from UCF. Galutz is married with three grown children and three grandchildren.

“I’m excited about getting started here at Seminole State College and getting to know our students, faculty and staff,” says Galutz, who started at Seminole State on May 26. 

A second deputy will be announced soon.
