Officers Credited for Saving Life

Congratulations to Sgt. Peter West, Officers Ashley Charter & Rajah Murphy for being nominated for the "STARS Award for Dedication" !

On December 4, Sgt. West displayed his dedication to his job and professionalism by guiding his staff in a quick action when he discovered an inmate who was attempting suicide. By being persistent with wellness checks, he found the inmate in a timely manner. By following CPR instructions provided by Sgt. West, newer Officers Ashley and Rajah were able to aid in saving the inmate’s life. They followed protocol without hesitation by alerting EMS, gathering equipment such as CPR masks and an AED and assisted with CPR until EMS arrived on the scene.

Without hesitation, we thank these professionals for their heroism, persistence, dedication and sympathy for saving a life!  Lee County is lucky to have such dedicated employees!

Keeping Your Home Safe

Whether you're home or away on vacation, a few simple precautions can make your home less attractive to burglars.
  • Be sure your outdoor lighting illuminates all entrances to your home.
  • Cut back shrubbery to discourage burglars from hiding near window and doors.
  • Keep windows and doors locked at all times. Make certain your garage door is closed and locked.
  • Install a peephole in your front door.
  • Windows and sliding glass doors should be secured with auxiliary locks. Special door pins, available at home improvement stores, can prevent your sliding doors from being lifted from their tracks during a burglary attempt.
  • Deadbolt locks should be used on all exterior doors (single or double cylinder with a minimum one inch throw is recommended).
  • Never hide or store keys or tools outside.
  • Believe it not, standard wildlife or deer trail cams mounted out of reach can also monitor your property inside and out. Some even have the ability to send images via text messages when you're away from home.
If you live in the county jurisdiction and would like more information on a home security inspection, contact the Lee County Sheriff's Office at 919-718-4561, ext. 5607 or 5629.

When you're away from home for extended periods, be sure to take the following precautions:
  • Let trusted friends and neighbors know that you'll be away.
  • Make your home appear occupied. Attach timers to lights and set them to turn on and off at different times.
  • Have your newspaper and mail held, or picked up by a friend or neighbor.
  • Disconnect or secure automatic garage door openers.
  • Open some of the drapes or blinds on your windows. During daytime hours, it gives the appearance that someone is home, and during the evening, lights inside the house are more visible.
LCSO offers residents in its jurisdictions a free Vacation Home Watch program. Deputies will drive by unoccupied residences and perform a daily perimeter check for signs of break-in or suspicious activity.  To participate, call or stop by your district office and request a vacation home watch form. You must provide the dates and times your home will be unoccupied with a contact phone number of a trusted neighbor or local relative.
