Memorial

A Memorial has been established at Lee County Sheriff's Office Headquarters in respectful memory of our fallen deputies.  It was conceived to remember and celebrate the lives and accomplishments of the members of the Lee County Sheriff's Office family who paid the ultimate price in service to us and to the entire Lee County community. The memorial has recently been redesigned and moved to the main Headquarters hallway.


A framed sketch and plaque pay tribute to each of our fallen LCSO certified officers. Each frame also contains a rubbing of the respective member's name engraved on the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington, D.C. See all of our fallen officers below.


Two additional plaques memorialize all LCSO members, both certified law enforcement officers and civilians, who have passed away.
