CCSO Honors Community Volunteers
More than 100 community volunteers were honored for their contributions to the Collier County Sheriff ’s Office at the 20th annual spring luncheon.
The luncheon, at the Hilton Naples, opened with a ceremony featuring the CCSO Honor Guard and closed with Sheriff Kevin Rambosk presenting awards to the volunteers.
At CCSO, volunteers assist deputies in a variety of ways, including staffing special events, helping with traffic control, providing research or support to investigators, performing data entry, and assisting with the agency’s many youth programs.Volunteers also patrol neighborhoods in specially marked vehicles, and if something seems out of character, they pass that information along to the deputies.
Ten civilian and auxiliary volunteers received certificates and plaques for the time and effort they unselfishly gave to the agency and the community in 2016:

- Roger Hill, 3,198 hours
