Fourth Quarter Awards Ceremony
February 12, 2020
Sheriff Carmine Marceno hosted the 4th Quarter Awards ceremony this morning, February 12th. Several hard-working and diligent members of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office received prestigious awards. One member received the “40 Years of Service Award”.
Not only did Sheriff Marceno recognize the longevity of various member’s service, he also recognized their accomplishments on the job with quarterly and yearly awards.
One of the Quarterly Awards given was the Corrections Deputy of the Quarter. The recipient, Sergeant LaDonna Brady, was recognized for her efforts on the Lee County Re-Entry Task Force. This task force aims to help inmates successfully transition back into society.
One of the Yearly Awards was given to Deputy Michael Swift, receiving the “Law Enforcement Deputy of the Year.” In 2019, Swift attentively worked a case involving a threat against Lee County Schools. Swift thoroughly investigated the threat and subsequently arrested the suspect. Swift’s quick-response and dedication potentially saved an untold number of lives.
