Community Engagement

Community Engagement

Without the constant engagement of our citizens in creating a safer community, we underutilize a significant resource in our crime fighting efforts. Through the creation of our Deputy Dogs- Pets on Patrol program, expansion of our on-site Safety Awareness Assessments or through the retooling of our Student Safe Driver Program we are working to keep Lee County a safer place to live, work and play.
School Safety

School Safety

Through enhanced live time video technology, increased intelligence gathering, on site assessments and greater citizen engagement, we have expanded our School Resource programs and training of our School Resource Officers. Our youngest citizens desire to learn in a safe environment and their parents deserve the comfort of knowing their children are protected.
Tax Dollar Efficiencies

Tax Dollar Efficiencies

No doubt that keeping our citizens safe takes incredible amounts of resources, dedicated staff and citizen awareness. As we approach this new budget cycle with your Lee County Commission and administrative staff, we are consistently looking for ways to efficiently purchase the equipment and law enforcement tools to best utilize and maximize your tax dollars.
Technology Driven Outcomes

Technology Driven Outcomes

Your Lee County Sheriff’s office continues to be a statewide leader in our efforts to incorporate crime fighting and safety management through technology and data driven allocation of our staff and resources.
Law Enforcement Collaboration

Law Enforcement Collaboration

My senior staff and I have either met with, or talked to, all of our local law enforcement agencies to establish a greater depth of working relationship to support and exchange critical law enforcement and citizen safety data points. An example of the importance of your law enforcement and local government working together was the immediate interaction between your Sheriff’s Office, State Attorney, County Commission and School Board in addressing the recent safety and security issues and concerns at our schools.
Enhanced Media Relationships & Transparency

Enhanced Media Relationships & Transparency

Steps have been taken to build elevated local media relationships on behalf of our citizens. The Public Information Office has been reorganized to provide more availability and response time. We have proactively reached out to local media outlets to build relationships and establish protocols for accessibility and ongoing interaction to provide current and credible information for our citizens.
