       The “Deputy Dogs” kickoff event is less than three weeks away!
       Stop by and visit us at Bell Tower on Saturday, April 13, 2019, between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm, and register your pet as a “Deputy Dog!”
       Sheriff Carmine Marceno, Deputy Chance and Lieutenant Bosco will be on hand to meet and greet guests.
      “Deputy Dogs” is a Lee County Sheriff’s Office community enrichment program encouraging citizens to be alert to activities taking place in their neighborhoods and to report suspicious activity.
       Sheriff Marceno developed the program as a means of engaging residents who are already walking their pets around and near their communities and can serve as a “second set of eyes.”
       The event is open to the public! There will be activities, music and food.

      Sheriff Carmine Marceno introduces his newest recruit, Deputy Chance, to the Lee Board of County Commissioners.
      Sheriff Marceno addressed the Commissioners about his safety initiatives including school safety, combating the opioid epidemic, which is a nationwide problem, and his zero-tolerance policy on animal cruelty. The Sheriff expressed his compassion for all, especially the defenseless.
      The County Commissioners had an opportunity to meet Deputy Chance and see for themselves how this pup, who was once left to die, is experiencing a new “leash” on life as a member of the Lee County Sheriff's Office.
      The Lee County Sheriff’s Office would like to invite everyone to our "Deputy Dogs – Pets on Patrol" kickoff event which will be on April 13th from 11 am – 1 pm at Bell Tower.
      The program is an enhanced neighborhood watch effort where citizens can sign up with their dogs and make Lee County an even safer place to live. Additional details about the event will be posted on our social media platforms and website.

      Deputy Chance completes initial assignments!
      Deputy Chance is recovering nicely and full of energy!
      Having been deputized last Thursday, eager to get his paws dirty, Deputy Chance sprang into action this weekend.
      Beginning with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the all-new Spinz Roller Skating Center on Andrea Lane in Fort Myers, Deputy Chance accompanied Sheriff Carmine Marceno and spent the early part of Saturday greeting friends in attendance.
      Bursting with energy, Deputy Chance continued on to yet another event. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office Teen Driver Challenge was taking place in Lehigh Acres and Deputy Chance watched young drivers maneuver through obstacle courses and hone their driving skills.
      When asked to describe his first day on duty, Deputy Chance stated, “ruff.”
Stay tuned to our social media pages for updates on Deputy Chance and his upcoming assignments…
