CCSO Volunteers Recognized For Helping Community

Collier County Sheriff’s Office volunteers were lauded Tuesday at a volunteer luncheon at the Hilton Naples.

The agency has more than 100 volunteers who perform a variety of tasks. Whether they patrol area streets or work in an office, these generous individuals help the agency serve the community and keep Collier County safe.

After an opening ceremony by the CCSO Honor Guard and singing of the National Anthem by Cpl. Sylee Gibson, Sheriff Kevin Rambosk presented awards to the volunteers.

Among those honored at the luncheon were Auxiliary Deputy Michael V. Jones, who serves both as a pilot in the agency's Aviation Unit and as a road patrol deputy; and Community Observer Deputy Ken Robins, who works primarily in the North Naples district. Jones logged 1,831.5 volunteer hours and Robins accumulated 1,559.5 hours.
