Sheriff's Message History
Working together to keep our community safe
June 01, 2007
Dear Citizens of Charlotte County,
You deserve the most effective and efficient public safety services possible. I take your trust seriously and as your Sheriff, I am committed to seeing these services are made available to you. My staff and I are dedicated to continuing to improve the quality of life and making Charlotte County one of the safest communities in the entire nation.
Since taking Office on January 4, 2005, I have worked with our County Commission, our community and my staff to establish a level of service that will effectively provide safety and security at a reasonable cost to you, the taxpayer.
I believe in a strong proactive approach to public safety services. My philosophy is one of having the vision to see a problem approaching on the horizon and investing resources at the front end to assure that the problem does not become entrenched within our community. A proactive approach is effective but requires your understanding that the investment made early may not produce immediate results but is the most effective way to produce a positive outcome in the years ahead.
Some of the proactive strategies I have implemented up to this point include:
I am extremely proud of the men and women who serve you at your Sheriff's Office. They work for me but are dedicated to you, the members of our community. Together with your help, support and understanding, we will continue to keep our community safe and one of the most enjoyable places to live.
Sheriff John Davenport
