A Message from Sheriff Carmine Marceno

The safety of our children has always been my number one priority. We are prepared for anything that comes our way and I make certain that my detectives are working alongside our analysts utilizing the latest technology to include our Real Time Intelligence Center. We leave no stone unturned. Every threat is considered real until proven otherwise. We will never ever ignore any red flags. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office, my family members, will do everything known to mankind to endure our children’s safety. We will spare no expense and we will be ready for anything and everything!

We will have law and order. My team trains over seven times the amount mandated by Florida statute to ensure that we are ready for every possible scenario. How you train is how you perform, and we are ready for every situation that comes our way. Any person who presents deadly force to one of our children will be met with deadly force immediately and without hesitation.

My heart is broken to see, once again, a news headline about a school shooting We must protect those that cannot protect themselves. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who lost loved ones during the tragic time.
