​News & Highlights

Have a hearing scheduled, please visit our hearing page for more information. And check out our Twitter page @BrowardECPD for the latest news and information.

What We Do
Enforcement Administration is empowered by various County Ordinances and State Statutes to address regulatory violations of the various Codes and to compel compliance. We resolve violations, track and take action to collect penalties, negotiate settlement agreements and restitution, and handle matters that require quasi-judicial administrative or judicial hearings. 

Search Enforcement Actions or Review Enforcement Files
The easiest way to electronically search for the status of an enforcement action, such as a Warning Notice, Citation, Notice of Violation, or Notice of Intent to File Suit issued after October 1, 2001, is to visit our online ENVIROS database.  

To search if a facility or location has an environmental enforcement action, visit the ENVIROS site, select the “Advanced Enforcement Action” and input the address in the appropriate fields.  You can also use ENVIROS to view Child Care Licensing inspections, check for contractor permits/licenses and outstanding liens. To schedule an enforcement file review at our office, call 954-519-1210.
