Charlotte County, FL – March 9, 2022-
The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office has received several nominations for the 2022 RISE awards. Within the Agency category, our Integrated Response for Intervention and Support (IRIS) Unit goes up against several other agencies. Our very own Correction Deputies Jacelyn Litman and Paige Butzer are up for the RISE Officer Award. This unique awards program is designed to recognize a department for making great strides in building up their community, as well as honors those who rise above the call of duty.

“For several of our members and the IRIS program to be nominated for the RISE awards is another demonstration of the tremendous work we put it to better our community. I am proud of each member and know that their dedication is why the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office is setting an example for others to emulate,” Sheriff Prummell proudly states.
