Partnering with a Purpose

In light of his commitment to the safety of our youth and desire to educate and properly train teen drivers, Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno is proud to announce an agreement with Miromar Outlets, located in beautiful Estero, as the new home of the Teen Driver Challenge.

The “Challenge” will take to the road in its new location beginning in May and will continue to provide young drivers with the knowledge and hands on experience needed to reduce their chances of being involved in a crash.

The Sheriff’s Office teen driver program is highly regarded as one of the best driving safety programs in the State of Florida. Sheriff Marceno intends to create additional initiatives and educational awareness around the program in an effort to enhance the fun, training and fundamental skills for teens as they take on the challenges of distracted driving. "Fur" instance, keep your eyes open for some exciting collaboration with "Deputy Chance", who was officially named the Ambassador of Goodwill for Lee County and the Lee County School District. 

“I can’t say enough about the importance of teaching our teens about the great responsibility that comes with sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle," said Sheriff Marceno. "Together, with our partners from Miromar Outlets and the Lee County School District we will continue to provide outstanding community awareness and enrichment programs for all of Lee County."
