The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce that Corporal David Musgrove was honored by the Florida Elks as their 2019 Enrique Camarena Award recipient. Each year, the Elks present the Enrique S. Camarena Award to a member of law enforcement who best exemplifies the qualities and principles for which Agent Camarena gave his life.
Enrique S. “Kiki” Camarena was an 11 year veteran agent of the DEA, who was kidnapped, brutally tortured and then murdered in Mexico in 1985. Prior to serving with the DEA, Agent Camarena was a firefighter, a criminal investigator and a narcotics officer. He was a loving husband and a father of three children. His death has inspired millions of Americans to lead a drug-free life and the Elks celebrate his commitment to this effort with an annual award.
Corporal Musgrove was nominated for this award for several reasons; his dedication to the agency, his squad and the citizens he has sworn to protect, his commitment to performing at the highest levels at all times, his self-initiated activity and his passion for drug enforcement. His nomination letter, submitted to the Elks by Lieutenant John Heck, is posted to the Elks website – https://www.floridaelks.org/enrique-camarena-award.
“Corporal Musgrove is an asset to our agency,” stated Sheriff Prummell. “We are very proud of his earning this recognition and anticipate his continued success at the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office.”
