Deputy John Stewart is our "Island Deputy", and he patrols our islands, Little Gasparilla and the Charlotte County end of Boca Grande. Going forward, he will frequently be on duty assisted by retired Sheriff Jerry Massey as our new Volunteer Deputy. This is a new position created last year by the Sheriff's office. Jerry will ride with John mostly holidays, also weekends and evenings (except Tuesdays and Thursdays).
Please note these numbers:
FOR NON EMERGENCIES: 941-474-3233
Also, if you are at the Ferry landing, have a look at the new commemorative bronze plaque that has been set at the base of the flagpole. We're passing on a big "thanks" to Dick Aulenti, Duane Allen, Dick Sadenwater and Ray "TPR" Smith for moving the flagpole to its new location and placing the plaque beneath it.
