Major Michael F. Page is a 40 year veteran of corrections and is dual certified in corrections and law enforcement.  Major Page brought an extensive work history in male and female adult prisons and community facilities in the Florida Department of Corrections for ten years before being appointed a Prison Inspector and Regional Supervisor for 19 years. As an Inspector and Regional Supervisor, he was responsible for conducting and overseeing criminal and internal affairs investigations, and inspections and management reviews of local and state level detention facilities in Florida. He retired from Pasco Sheriff's Office in 2007 after serving six years as the Detention Bureau Commander. His duties included overseeing the Detention Center Operations, Warrants Division, Courthouse Security and Bailiffs Division. Between 2007 and 2010, he continued his service with Pasco as a reserve law enforcement deputy, and as an ACA test certified auditor, Major Page conducted performance audits across the nation in local and state detention facilities, probation offices and parole boards to determine compliance with the National Standards as set by the American Correction Association.

In May 2010, Major Page was recruited back to full time employment with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office, where he serves as the Judicial Services Bureau Commander, operating an 818 bed detention facility and overseeing the Warrants, Civil and Bailiff’s Sections, along with courthouse security and the transport units. In August of 2010, then Sheriff Nugent assumed operational control of the County Jail after 22 years of operation by a private vendor, and in less than 100 days, the transition was successfully completed.  With his extensive knowledge and experience in corrections and law enforcement he is a definite asset to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.

The Major is a Florida native who attended Leesburg High School in Leesburg, Florida.  He served in the United States Navy from 1970-1973.  He is an active member of the Florida Council on Crime and Delinquency (FCCD) Chapter 30 and serves at the state level as the Executive Secretary for the Board of FCCD.

Under the direction of Major Page, the men and women of the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center continue to build upon the pride and professionalism he has brought to our County.
