Safety Enhancement Announcement

IMG_2947 - CopyThe DeSoto County Sheriff's Office is proud to announce a new addition to enhance the safety of our law enforcement deputies while on patrol. We are implementing the use of the Guardian Angel Device, a light-up, magnetic, and flashing device that ensures our deputies are visible, even when they step away from their vehicles, at all hours, day or night. Whether it’s for traffic stops or tactical operations, these devices will play a crucial role in keeping our deputies safe.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to Keith Roberts, Theresa Chestnut, and Janice Martinez from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District 1 for providing these lifesaving devices to our agency. Additionally, we appreciate Florida Highway Patrol Lieutenant Roberts and Public Affairs Officer, Lieutenant Gregory Bueno, for ensuring their troopers also benefit from this enhanced safety measure.

Together we are committed to making DeSoto County a safer place for everyone.
