CCSO Launches “Carpool Cruiser”
Move over James Corden, the Collier County Sheriff’s Office is in the carpool lane.
There won’t be singing, but the Sheriff’s Office is looking to pick up fans with its new video ridealong series.
“Carpool Cruiser” is an occasional series featuring CCSO deputies talking about their jobs while riding around in a sheriff’s cruiser.
Inspired by late night TV’s Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke,” Lt. J.J. Carroll will take the wheel and interview a different agency member about his or her job. Each episode will starts with Lt. Carroll picking up a deputy and end with him dropping off the deputy at work.
The first episode featured Cpl. Jerrod Carver of the Agriculture Unit riding shotgun while talking about his job and engaging in lively and upbeat banter with Lt. Carroll. Cpl. Carver discusses everything from his favorite vehicle to use on patrol to his strangest call (It involves a kangaroo).
You too can come along for the ride. Watch the video on www.ccso.tv or on the agency’s YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/colliercountysheriff or on ccso.tv.
