PUPPY UPDATE: This week we shared a video of agency members who deployed to Calhoun County to assist with hurricane recovery efforts, but these two cuties stole the show! The tiny survivors, Mica and Cane, are making themselves right at home and are loving life at camp SCSO. Inv. Eva Marie Multari is caring for the pups around camp, and we are happy to report that in just a few weeks they will be adopted by one of our own SCSO family members! #WeAreSCSO

We were honored to be recognized by the World Affairs Council of Central Florida at their Global Nights Volunteer Appreciation Event last night!

Community partners from Seminole County Public Schools’ #PTA donated 500 pajama sets for children we encounter during Child Protective Services investigations. Thank you for your generosity! @SCPSInfo
