Sergeant Kyle Corbitt of the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO) has been named the 2023 Supervisor of the Year for his exemplary leadership and dedication to serving the community. 

  • As the Special Operations Unit Supervisor, Sgt. Corbitt oversees the operations of the Marine, Beach, and Dive Units.

Promoted in 2021, Sgt. Corbitt has been instrumental in planning and scheduling for the White Point Road and Spring Break Beach Details, ensuring public safety and security at public beach parks and Crab Island. His efforts have contributed to a 77% decrease in BUI arrests in 2023 (first year since 2017), with Okaloosa County experiencing only one alcohol-related fatality vessel crash.

Under Sgt. Corbitt’s leadership, the Marine Unit has set the standard for marine law enforcement in the panhandle of Florida and Alabama, with other agencies seeking operational guidance and recommendations from Okaloosa County. 

In 2023, two Marine Unit members received state recognition at the Mothers Against Drunk Driving awards, and the OCSO was nominated for small agency of the year.

  • Sgt. Corbitt actively engages with the community by attending meetings with the Okaloosa Watersport Operations Coalition to discuss water safety and applicable laws with local business owners and residents. Additionally, he has volunteered over 196 hours coaching youth sports in Crestview and has completed the FBI-LEEDA trilogy leadership series.

The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office commended Sgt. Kyle Corbitt for his exceptional leadership, empowering others to perform at a high level, and his unwavering commitment to serving the community.
