County Cars and Vehicles
Any employee who needs to drive a County or personal vehicle in the course of County business must have a valid Florida driver’s license and be authorized to drive by the Safety and Occupational Health Section of the Risk Management Division. In addition, employees may only operate vehicles for which they have been trained and for which they have the proper class of license. See also County Property. Refer also to the County’s Safety Manual distributed by the Risk Management Division. See also Driver Authorization.
Property owned by the County, including vehicles, computers, email, Internet access, software, cell phone/PDA telephones, two-way radios, fax or copy machines, etc., is to be used for official County business. Employees are entrusted to use County equipment properly and safely. Any County property under the control of an employee is subject to inspection; therefore, employees should have no expectation of privacy of personal information or property maintained on or in County issued property or equipment, including desks, lockers, two-way radio communication and computer systems, email or other office equipment. Radio communications may be recorded as part of the business operations. Abuse or misuse of County property may be cause for disciplinary action. See also Sunshine Law.
