CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla - Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Cameron turned over keys this morning to a 2001 used cruiser to Edison State College President Dr. Patricia Land and Campus Security Sgt. Kevin Brooks.
In presenting the keys, Sheriff Cameron said, “This is a win-win situation for the sheriff’s office, Edison State College and taxpayers.” The cruiser with 77,000 miles was refurbished and painted free by Don Bennett’s Automotive in Punta Gorda.
Sgt. Brooks, a retired Fort Myers Police Department officer, was appointed to the Department of Public Safety on the Charlotte County ESC campus. Sheriff Cameron said, “Sgt. Brooks works with us when we get a call for service on campus and the call is turned over to him to investigate. He can respond immediately, thus saving a road deputy’s valuable time.”
