He is now awake and receiving out-patient therapy in Atlanta. The Collier County Sheriff’s Office and off-duty members of FWC partnered with Cavo Lounge for a fundraiser of Friday.

They presented a check for $3,000 to Plussa’s co-workers this afternoon.

“It means a lot to our department, it means a lot that the community has come out to support one of our fallen officers and it gives Kyle and his fiancé Lauren a chance to stay on their feet,” said Mark Mahoney, FWC Officer.

The money raised will help cover the Plussa’s medical and household expenses.
