Corrections Deputy Arrested on Felony Domestic Battery Charge

Charlotte County, FL – July 21, 2023

On July 19, the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office received an allegation of domestic violence involving one of our detention staff members. An investigation was conducted by the Domestic Violence Unit, which resulted in the arrest of 22-year-old Dylan Landmark. Landmark was arrested on July 20, and charged with Felony Domestic Battery.  He has been employed by the Sheriff’s Office since June of 2020.

In response to these serious allegations, we are launching a comprehensive internal investigation to thoroughly examine the incident. Our commitment to transparency and accountability remains unwavering. As of now, Dylan Landmark is in custody at the Charlotte County Jail and has been placed on Administrative Leave without pay. We place great emphasis on our core values of Integrity, Professionalism, and Trust, and we expect all our members to embody these principles in their actions both on and off duty.

“We are not above the law. In fact, I hold my staff to a higher set of standards, both sworn and civilian. As Sheriff of this county, my duty is to uphold the trust and safety of our community. When any member of our agency faces allegations that may breach that trust, we take it with utmost seriousness,” states Sheriff Bill Prummell.
