Workshop Showcases Safety Information

An aware community is a safe community.

That’s the philosophy behind a special half-day crime prevention awareness workshop that was offered Wednesday by the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, the Naples Police and Fire Department and The Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce.

The workshop, which took place at North Naples Regional Park, featured sessions on identity theft, retail crime trends, lottery scams, South American theft groups and more. The U.S. Secret Service, the Florida Lottery and the South American Theft Group Intelligence Network were among the presenters.

Special guests included Sheriff Kevin J. Rambosk and Naples Police Chief Tom Weschler.

The event was sponsored by Giovanni’s Italian Restaurant, Hooters, Allegra Print & Imaging, Jewelers International, Planet Fitness, Costco, Bonefish Grill, Sunshine Ace Hardware, Grey Oaks and All Locks Locksmith Service.
