Collier County Sheriff's Office News

Three of our deputies were recognized at a luncheon today held by the Sons of the American Revolution Naples Chapter at Tiburón Golf Club. Cpl. Stephan Leoni was recognized for deescalating an encounter with an armed man in December of last year, successfully avoiding the use of force. Cpl. Joshua Hankinson, an off-duty corrections officer, was recognized for pulling a man out of his truck after it crashed last October. Moments after the man was safe, the truck exploded in flames. And Sgt. Joan Campo, also in the jail, was recognized for helping to solve the Fort Myers Zombicon shootings last fall after an inmate bragged about the crime. Sheriff Kevin Rambosk accepted the award on her behalf. We're proud of these awards and proud to have stood by our colleagues from the Florida Highway Patrol as well as first responders from our fire and EMS stations.

Collier County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested a Naples High School student Thursday after an investigation determined that he was responsible for a threat of violence made over social media. The 15-year-old student was charged with written threats to kill, do bodily injury, or conduct a mass shooting or an act of terrorism under Florida Statute 836.10. This statute was expanded after February's shooting at Parkland's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to include “any person who makes, posts, or transmits a threat in a writing or other record, including an electronic record, to conduct a mass shooting or an act of terrorism, in any manner that would allow another person to view the threat.” We continue to have an enhanced law-enforcement presence on all Collier County Public School campuses. School safety remains our top concern. If you see something of concern please don’t spread it, report it. Call 911 or the CCSO non-emergency number at 239.252.9300.

Our Traffic deputies are stepping up their presence at school bus stops and along bus routes this month, reminding motorists when to stop for a bus and reminding our students how to stay safe, too. Take a second to refresh yourself on these key safety tips: SAFETY AROUND THE SCHOOL BUS * Make sure your child knows their bus number. This will reduce your child’s stress and avoid confusion on which bus to ride. * Make sure your child knows their telephone number and address. * Parents/guardians should visit the bus stop with their child. * Walk the route to and from the bus stop with your child, pointing out landmarks and safe places to go if they are being followed or bothered by a stranger. The safe places can be used if your child needs help. * Teach your child what to do if the bus does not arrive on time. * Teach your child to stay with a group while waiting at the bus stop. * If an adult approaches your child for help or directions, remind them that adults should not ask children for help; they should ask another adult. SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION SAFETY FOR MOTORISTS * Florida law requires motorists to stop upon approaching any school bus displaying its flashing red lights. The only exception is when a vehicle is traveling in the opposite direction of the school bus and traveling on a divided highway with an unpaved space of at least 5 feet or when traveling on a divided highway with a raised median or a physical barrier. * Be alert and watch for children especially near schools, bus stops, school buses and in school parking lots. * Children on bicycles can be unpredictable and can make sudden changes in direction. Be especially careful when children are present in school zones and residential areas. * Pay extra attention to lower speed limits in school zones. * Watch for and obey signals from school crossing guards. * Only drive or park in authorized areas to drop off or pick up children at school.

Corkscrew Middle School hosted a first responders and veterans appreciation ceremony and breakfast today. The school rededicated its 9-11 memorial, which was recently repaired after suffering damage during Hurricane Irma. It was a great event with CCSO, North Collier Fire Rescue District and Collier County EMS attended along with local veterans!

Several of our Motor Officers attended the Bruce Rossmeyer motorcycle skills challenge in Daytona last weekend which was hosted by the Volusia County Sheriff's Office. This event brought motorcycle law enforcement officers, both local and abroad, together to train and become more proficient in the safe operation of their duty motorcycle. This event’s goal was to raise money for two charities: the Florida Sheriff’s Youth Ranch and the Volusia Sheriff’s Youth Foundation. The Mission of the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches is to prevent delinquency and develop strong, lawful, resilient, and productive citizens who will make a positive contribution to our communities through various residential care and community services to at-risk youth. Cpl.Kaplan placed 1st in his division!

Sharing a few more of our favorite photos from the Swamp Buggy Parade this weekend. Sheriff Kevin Rambosk was honored to serve as Grand Marshal!

Check out today’s Naples Daily News to read all about the rich history of the Swamp Buggy Races and Parade including Sheriff Rambosk’s memories of the event. His first assignment when he was sworn in as a City of Naples police officer in 1978 was to direct traffic at the Swamp Buggy Parade. Fast forward 40 years and he was the 2018 Swamp Buggy Parade grand marshal. Here’s a pretty cool 1978 photo of him with the Plymouth Fury patrol car he drove at the time.

Today's Bikers for Babies ride will affect traffic in North Naples and Immokalee much of the morning. In short, plan to avoid Immokalee road from Livingston to U.S. 41 from 9 a.m. to noon. State Road 82 and State Road 29 in Immokalee will be impacted later in the morning Sunday as well. The ride will take about three hours total. Here are full details of the route: The ride begins at 9 a.m. Sunday at North Collier Regional Park. Motorcyclists will ride from the park to Seminole Casino in Immokalee. We estimate all roads will reopen by noon. The main roads in the county impacted by this will be a small portion of west bound lanes of Immokalee Road and a stretch of U.S. 41 N. Bikers will head north through Bonita and Estero before heading east again, toward Immokalee, joining up at State Road 82 then State Road 29, before arriving at the casino. The 50-mile journey will involve 1,500 bikers and roads will be closed until the bikes have passed through that portion of the route. The ride will take about three hours. A map is attached for the route.

Sheriff Rambosk had the honor of waving the flags to start the Swamp Buggy Races this afternoon.

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office was out in full force to help ensure everyone had a fun and safe Halloween experience Wednesday night. Even our Mounted Patrol Unit was out and about during 5th Avenue South’s annual trick-or-treat event. Hundreds of attendees, both kids and adults, loved getting to meet with and learn more about the horses on out patrol - Sampson, Cody and Bullseye. Even “The Incredible Dr. Pol” of Nat Geo Wild fame dropped by to give Sampson a “checkup” and clean bill of health! Photos by Sgt. David Estes/CCSO(4)
