Taking Care of Family, Clients & Community for Three Decades

Lee County Sheriff’s Office provides “behind-the-tape” look to The Preserve residents

Residents of The Preserve, a senior living community in Fort Myers, got a first look at the Lee County Sheriff’s Office’s (LCSO) “Getting to Know Your Lee County Sheriff’s Office” presentation.

The presentation gave residents a “behind-the-tape” look at the history of LCSO, its different departments and more. Crime Prevention Practitioner Victoria Staryk led the inaugural presentation. Included in the presentation were videos from Sheriff Carmine Marceno and photos of LCSO facilities, technology and outreach centers.

At the presentation, 14 residents were present, along with staff and family members. Throughout the presentation, attendees had the opportunity to ask questions and share their personal experiences with LCSO.

“We’re very grateful to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office for taking the time to speak to our residents about the people who protect them,” said Ryan Keller, executive director at The Preserve. “Our residents loved learning more about the Sheriff’s Office, especially when it came to the K-9s!”

Through video and verbal presentation, Staryk educated the residents on all aspects of LCSO’s operations, including Sheriff Marceno’s initiatives, the 911 Call Center, the Community Response Unit, the newly launched Road Rage and Street Racing Task Forces and more. Staryk also shared traffic stories and heroic LCSO rescue stories.

“I’m so glad that I had the opportunity to bring LCSO to The Preserve,” said Victoria Staryk, a crime prevention practitioner at Lee County Sheriff’s Office. “I’m happy that my first presentation was with such an engaged and pleasant audience.”

As a follow-up to the first presentation, Staryk returned to The Preserve to educate the community’s staff members on workplace safety, emotional intelligence and the importance of confiding in coworkers. The Preserve is an amenity-rich senior living community that provides the full continuum of care, located at 14750 Hope Center Loop in Fort Myers.
