In 1997, Major Robert Parmelee joined the City of Lauderhill's Police Department. He started as an Officer in the Patrol Division and was quickly promoted to Detective in the Criminal Investigation Division in 1999.
In the beginning of 2002, Major Parmelee was offered a position with the Sanders County Sheriff’s Office, in Montana, as a Deputy where he then left the City of Lauderhill and relocated there. Later that year, due to family, he decided it was best to return to Florida and back to the Lauderhill Police Department where he has since served in the capacity as a Road Patrol Officer, Field Training Officer, and Detective, until his promotion to Sergeant in 2008.
He served as a Sergeant in the Patrol Division and the Criminal Investigations Unit until he was then promoted to Lieutenant in 2013, which he then served as a Patrol Division Lieutenant and Administrative Lieutenant. He was then promoted to his current rank of Major in March 2016 with responsibilities of overseeing the entire Support Services Bureau and most recently, overseeing the Operations Bureau.
Major Parmelee served in the United States Marine Corps and is currently pursuing his Bachelors in Public Administration at Barry University. He is an Associate Member of the Broward County Chiefs of Police Association. Major Parmelee is a devoted husband and a proud father of two.
