We live in a relatively safe area. Even so, the crime rate in Fort Myers and Lee County is shrinking. Both violent and property crimes are down in the area.
Violent crimes dropped 7.9 percent over 2017. Property crime shrank by 3.4 percent in the same period. Our office strives to find solutions that continue to lower crime.
How does the Sheriff protect your area?
The median household income in Lee county was $50,014. This is close to the national average. With multiple cities over 60,000 people there is plenty to keep track of. Lee County grew by over 300,000 people from 2000 to 2017.
The Sheriff ensures that the crime rate does not follow the rate of population growth. Our offices investigate complaints, respond to emergencies, patrol county roads, and execute warrants. We do more than make arrests. Carmine’s experience coordinating these efforts helps make our middle-class area among the safest in Florida.
