LCSO Announces Deputy of the Year Award

Tallahassee, FL - The Leon County Sheriff’s Office Citizen’s Academy Alumni Association (CAAA) has established an annual ‘Leon County Deputy of the Year Award’ to be presented to an outstanding Deputy in April 2011.

In keeping with the mission of the Association to “promote and preserve a close relationship between the alumni, the community and the LCSO,” the intent of the award is to provide a way for the CAAA to recognize a Deputy that has been identified by a citizen for outstanding service to the community. Anyone can nominate a Deputy for outstanding service performed in Leon County during the designated time period of April 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011. While the event/service must take place in
Leon County, the person making the nomination does not have to be a resident of Leon County.

Deputies are serving the community in many types of situations each day. The categories of outstanding service to be recognized include; heroic life saving event, distinguished above & beyond service, community involvement, exemplary level of professionalism. Award nomination forms are available through the Leon County Sheriff’s Office Crime Prevention Unit. You may also visit the LCSO website at to obtain a nomination form.

After the nomination deadline, the nominations will be reviewed by a panel consisting of the Sheriff, members of CAAA and members of the community. The award will consist of a cash award and an
engraved plaque. The award presentation will be made at the graduation banquet of the LCSO Citizen’s Academy in April 2011. Nomination deadline is March 31, 2011.

    for what? u are a joke. I have rode with them alot. ALOT is not even close. I can't count the times over the years,to many. UNtil you get off you backside and ride a few times,just keep your comments to your self. This gents and ladys do thier job and they do get some of the most ugh cases. They are out their in all kinds of weather,stop fights,take care of sick or dieing people till emts get there. Risk their lives to help anyone in need, really bad situtions. Have you ever pulled someone out of a wreck knowing it can explode any sec. Help a baby comeing into this world. I have seen things that I would ask "how do you sleep after this and not have nightmares?" To someone like you I hope you NEVER need a deputy or even an other officers help. If you do "thank them". I think for one this is a really good thing to do.

    for what? really? most of these men and women risk their lives everyday to protect people like you! They miss holidays and bdays with their family while making sure it is safe for you.They patrol all night while you sleep safely in your bed.Do you think it is a easy job?If you had to see most of what they see everyday when they go to work you would never look at anything the same.LCSO has many Deputies that should get this never hear about the good things they do,the only time someone has anything to say is when they want to slam them.hey for what CAN YOU STRAP ON THAT VEST AND DO THAT JOB EVERYDAY? or just sit in your lazyboy and tell them how to do their job?
