Okaloosa County Clerk of Courts & Comptroller

JD Peacock II, Clerk of the Courts & Comptroller for Okaloosa County, Florida is a duly elected Constitutional Officer as mandated by Article V, Section 16 of the Constitution of the State of Florida. The electorate of Okaloosa County elects the Clerk to a four-year term. Clerk Peacock was elected to the Office of the Clerk in 2014.

Pursuant to provisions of the Florida Constitutions, which have governed the people for over 150 years, the role of the Clerk of Courts has been established in three main areas;

  • Clerk of the Circuit and County Courts
  • Clerk to the Board of County Commissioners, including serving as accountant, auditor, and custodian of county funds.
  • County Recorder

Within these areas, the Clerk of Court as an elected public trustee sets in place at the county level a system of “checks and balances” which has been proven to serve the public well.
