Flagging Operations on the Howey Bridge have been postponed due to the weather. Please drive safely! #howeybridge Howey-in-the-Hills Police Department

Meet Mia, a 2 year old English Bulldog. Mia and owner, Corporal Robert Bedgood, recently graduated from the Brevard County Sheriff's Office, Florida (Official) Law Enforcement Investigative Therapy Dog Course. Mia was then sworn in as a Deputy Sheriff by Sheriff Grinnell. Mia and Cpl. Bedgood will assist the Special Victims Unit in interviews with victims of violent crimes and other calls of special circumstances. Studies show that victims are twice as likely to disclose information regarding their case when an investigative therapy dog is introduced. There’s no doubt that Mia will prove those numbers correct. #therapydog #allianceoftherapydogs #englishbulldog #bulldog

Please be advised that flagging operations are scheduled on the Howey bridge from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. tomorrow and Thursday, weather permitting. Motorists should expect some delays while the contractor works to replace damaged temporary barrier wall. #howeybridge #howeyinthehills #construction #drivesafe

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of retired K-9 Cooper. K-9 Cooper served the citizens of Lake County for 10 years as a passive nitrate (bomb) detector. He and his Handler, Master Deputy Jodi Bowlin, served in the School Resource Unit and were jointly assigned to the Hazardous Devices Team. He won first place in every division at the US Police Canine Association competition. K-9 Cooper and MD Bowlin were the recipients of multiple other awards during his career. K-9 Cooper and MD Bowlin also assisted @volusia.sheriff and the Volusia Speedway with the Daytona 500 every year of their service to keep NASCAR fans safe during the event. Please keep MD Bowlin and her family in your thoughts and prayers as they mourn the loss of K-9 Cooper. K-9 Cooper EOW 5-4-2018 #k9down #canine #prayers

Detectives are looking into some fraud activity and possible skimming at the BP at the corner of Emeralda Avenue and CR 44 in Lisbon. We believe that the activity has been sporadic over the last month. Do your best to protect yourself. -Use pumps within view of the store clerks -Look for anything out of place and even compare two pumps for likeness -Pull on and wiggle the card reader parts -Use a credit card in lieu of a debit card Remember, nothing is fail-safe. Paying inside or paying cash may be your best bet.

The 37th Annual Training Seminar is being held this week at The Lakeside Inn in Lake County. The mission of the Florida Agricultural Crimes Intelligence Unit is to promote and facilitate the exchange of agricultural related intelligence to law enforcement officers specializing in agriculture crime investigations in the State of Florida.

Sheriff Peyton Grinnell is in Washington DC participating in National Police Week and National Peace Officers Memorial Day to honor and remember those law enforcement officers who made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as the family members, friends and fellow officers they left behind. This year, the names of 360 officers killed in the line of duty are being added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC. Earlier this month The Lake County Sheriff’s Office held their own law enforcement memorial to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice to the citizens we serve. We thought it poignant to share it with you this week as the nation comes together in Washington DC to remember all those who have lost their lives in the line of duty. #officerdown #policeweek2018 #thinblueline #thinbluelinefamily #policeunitytour2018 #sacrifice #nationalpoliceweek #nationalpeaceofficersmemorialday

Yesterday began National Police Week 2018. Please take a moment throughout your day and remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. #officerdown #policeweek2018 #thinblueline #thinbluelinefamily
