It takes a special person to become a law enforcement officer. They must warriors, caregivers, and role models. They are held to the highest standards because thatโ€™s what the communities they protect deserve.

Many say that itโ€™s a lifestyle more than just a job.

Kissing your loved ones goodbye and leaving for your shift, not knowing if youโ€™re going to walk back through the door, weighs heavy.

When you are home, you decompress, sleep, and spend time with those that support you. You are in the safety of your residence and trust the other brave men and women in law enforcement have the watch.

On April 13th, one of my family members, who resides in Hendry County had his personal property and assigned Lee County Sheriffโ€™s Office patrol car damaged.

Wasting no time, members of my team and the men and women of the Hendry County Sheriffโ€™s Office began to investigate.
The following day, around 11:30 AM, 32-year-old Derek Evan Weber, of LaBelle, decided to drive his vehicle through my Deputyโ€™s garage door and OPEN FIRE with a 9mm handgun.

My Deputy is a hero. He jumped into action to protect his family. He ran to danger when so many others would run away. Thank God he and his family were not injured during this attack.

Law enforcement officers all over the country have been attacked for simply doing their jobs. District Attorneys and elected officials in some areas donโ€™t hold criminals accountable, releasing them with no bail back into the communities to victimize more people in SWFL.

We have and will maintain law and order and protect those that dedicate their lives to protecting their communities. It is more dangerous to be a law enforcement officer now than ever before.

Our amazing State Attorney, Amira Fox, backs her law enforcement partners. She ensures criminals are held accountable and believes that the most important thing to the residents she serves is their safety and security.

The LCSO Deputy is on paid administrative leave. He will also be afforded resources to make sure he and his family are taken care of.

I have personally been in contact with my Deputy. He and his family are doing well and has my FULL support. Once the crime scene was cleared, members of our team worked into the night to secure his residence so his family could have some peace.

I would also like to thank my brother, Sheriff Whidden, and his team for their continued support, every day. It doesnโ€™t matter what patch is on your sleeve or the color of your uniform, we are all part of one team with the same goals.

While some administrations have demonized law enforcement because of their own failed policies, Florida is thriving with those that want to live in a place where they know they are safe.

We will have law and order in SWFL.
