Sheriff's Welcome

DSC_4526Thanks for visiting the Lee County Sheriff’s Office home page. I can’t tell you how excited and humbled I am to serve as your Sheriff.

Keeping you safe is my number one priority. That means having only the best law enforcement team you can find. We are forward thinkers, innovative and effective in every aspect of this agency.

As you know, school safety has become a top priority across the country. Here in Lee County, I can assure you along with the Lee County School District, we are working to keep the 93-thousand plus students in Lee County safe while in their classrooms. It’s my belief that if students don’t feel safe, they can’t learn. Investing in our children today is what will continue to make this growing county so great.

Speaking of growth, Lee County has become one of the fastest growing areas in the state of Florida. More and more families are choosing to raise their children here, open businesses here and vacation here. We are dedicated to staying ahead of the needs that come with a booming and diverse population. Cutting edge technology, more SRO’s and the highest degree of constant training are just a few ways we work to protect you and your family in this day and age.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office also remains proactive in offering FREE classes to the public including Active Shooter and situational-awareness programs. You can find more about those programs on this website.

I believe close relationships and strong leadership are woven into the fabric of this community and it is my honor to serve you by keeping the streets of Lee County safe.

If you are a visitor to Lee County, I offer you a warm welcome. I know you’ll enjoy our year-round great weather, beaches and countless activities Southwest Florida has to offer.

By working together, our opportunities are endless. I am laser focused and look forward to keeping us moving in the right direction.

- Sheriff Carmine Marceno
