The Hahira Police Department and the Remerton Police Department chose not to participate in their dog and pony show. Ask the LCSO deputy what he got from the Rotary Club when his home burned. Or the Valdosta PD officer when he got shot... Last year the LCSO and VPD were the only agencies awarded an officer of the year, they had a junior table for the smaller agencies (honorable mention table). Lake Park was the only agency that attended last year, if only Bert knew how he was talked about.
I don't think it's fair to pick one agency over the other. The president of the Rotary club made it clear last year that some agencies are better than others. Remember wearing a badge is dangerous, reqardless of where you police.

Let's face it, some organizations "honor" officers by throwing a banquet that raises money for the organization and the same organizations do little or nothing for the officers who have been hurt in the line of duty.

we take care of our on at the county, when the deputys house was still smoking we were collecting clothes, furniture and basic household goods and food for them and assisted them with moving into a rental house, so it really benefits the smaller depts more so than big brother and sisters dept but it is overall for a good cause

I agree it could have been a good thing, the only problem is that not all law enforcement was included in the begining. I admire the LCSO how they came together and collected for one of their own. So has other agencies wheather they are large or small. My point is, why didn't the Rotary club go and offer assistance to the deputy, I heard in order for them to help him and his family, he had to ask. With the help from within the department, he never would ask. I just proud to have a Sheriff's Department that takes care of their own, while protecting us.
