Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummell has announced the first in a series of presentations that will be hosted throughout the county by the Sheriff’s Office. The CCSO Speaker Series will cover a variety of topics that focus on crime prevention through education.
The first topic in the series will be Identity Theft and Scams, presented by Sergeant Diane Young of the Economic Crimes Unit. Attendees will learn the common ways people fall victim to identity theft and scams and learn best practices to protect themselves and their family. This presentation will be held at the Mid-County Regional Library in Port Charlotte on November 20, 2018, from 2:00pm-3:00pm. It is requested that you RSVP for the event through Eventbrite by clicking here so that room capacity can be monitored. The event is also listed on the CCSO Facebook Page.
“Although social media is a tremendous resource for providing information and education to the community, we cannot overlook the value of personal contact,” stated Sheriff Prummell. “These presentations provide the opportunity for Charlotte County residents to meet their Sheriff’s Office personnel, learn about what is happening in their community, and ask questions.”
The CCSO Speaker Series is organized and scheduled by the Community Affairs Unit. Upcoming topics include the new Domestic Violence Unit, Alzheimer’s Considerations and the Project Lifesaver Program, and Internet/Social Media Awareness. If you have an idea for a topic that you would like to see addressed, or have an event space and would like to host a presentation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
