CCSO Sergeant Named As 2012 Power Woman

The Naples edition of The Florida Weekly newspaper has named a Collier County Sheriff’s Office corrections officer as one of its 2012 Power Women.

Sgt. Kristin Shiner, a nine-year CCSO veteran, earned the honor in recognition of her successful efforts to persuade a man who allegedly shot and killed another man in his driveway to give up his gun.

Sgt. Shiner was at home in Cape Coral on her day off July 25 when she heard gunshots. She immediately retrieved her duty weapon and raced toward the gunshots. She found a man facedown and bleeding in a driveway. While she was checking on the man, she heard the slide of a gun reloading.

She looked up to see a man in the garage holding a gun. She drew her gun and ordered him to drop his weapon. The man did so on the third command. Sgt. Shiner then held him at gunpoint until police arrived and arrested him.

Sgt. Shiner, along with 17 other notable women within the community, are being recognized in this week’s edition of The Florida Weekly. They will also attend an awards banquet at Florida Gulf Coast University on Nov. 1.

Sheriff Kevin Rambosk also recently presented Sgt. Shiner with the CCSO Medal of Valor in recognition of her actions.
