I went on a ride along with Sgt. Leon on Saturday, 02 November 2013. In the 8 hours that I was patrolling with Sgt. Leon, I learned a lot about the Pasco County Sheriff’s Department, and their responsibilities and duties. Sgt. Leon is very professional, knowledgeable, and takes his job very seriously. I witnessed him and his team effectively converse with each other, and seemed to work very well together. Although I was required to do a ride along as a class requirement, Sgt. Leon’s testimony and work ethics encouraged me to look further into becoming a law enforcement officer. Even further, Sgt. Leon was very attentive, organized, and actively concerned about the well-being of his team as well as the community. It is nice to know that my family and I can rely on someone with such professionalism and compassion to help keep our community safe. Big thanks to Sgt. Leon!

Dear Sheriff Norco,

I am the assistant secretary of Buena Vista Adventure. Our park is about 1000 residences, 1/2 houses and 1/2 trailers, on either side of Bonita Rd. For many months, I was calling your office regularly because of streetwalkers in our park. For the past 2 or so, you haven’t gotten any calls from me on this. It’s not because I’ve stopped paying attention — it’s because they haven’t been here. Instead, I’ve seen your deputies here in force.

Thank you and your deputies for your diligence in cleaning up this park. Keep up the good work.

I just wanted to say thank you to Sergeant C. Cabbage for the outstanding work that he performed to pursue the man that vandalized my car in a public parking lot in New Port Richey. I was very pleased with the response time of the call as well as the search that was performed after the report was made. I am happy that I had great help from you as well as following up with me shortly after to let me know the situation after you made contact with the man.

Thanks again for all your help!

Subject: Sheriff’s Drug Fighting SUV!

I wanted to contact the sheriff to notify him that I really like the two sheriff vehicles that the sheriffs have created. I was given permission from an officer a while ago to take photos of the car. I submitted a photo to a world wide photography site called ViewBug and a “city life” contest came up. I thought the car would fit the contest so I submitted the entry. I just got notification from the company that it is currently ranked in the upper 30% on voting.

I am attaching a copy of the photo and vote button and hoping to increase votes through you since I do not have a large “email/facebook kind of network” to request more votes. link: http://www.viewbug.com/contests/city-life-photo-contest-by-animoto/2106504

If you are able to please let the sheriff and his staff aware of this and my hope for votes from them and others they may know to do the same.
I was very proud of our sheriff’s dept when I saw this car and I love the way they designed it.
thank you very much.

Subject: Rapid Responses

I would just like to thank you for your rapid responses. I’ve had to call 911 twice this week and both times your response came in less than five minutes. I called an hour ago, around 2:30 am 9-15-13, reporting a trespasser. The officer responding was here in about three minutes and very diligent.

I want you to know how much I appreciate your performance. It is a striking and positive contrast to what I left behind in Michigan several years ago, where a 911 call sometime got response the next day.

Thank you for being there every time needed.

Sheriff Nocco,

I would like to thank three members of your agency who assisted with a welfare check of my wife and daughter. On 8/14/13 I was working as a Pinellas County firefighter and received a phone call from my home at 345 am. No one was on the line and several attempts to call the home using other lines were unanswered. Being an hour away, I contacted your dispatch center and requested a welfare check. The response by your deputies was immediate and it was determined my daughter had rolled over in her sleep and hit the “last call” button.

I would like to thank Dispatcher Daugherty, Deputy Williamson, and Deputy Towne for their help.

Thank You,

Good Afternoon –

I wanted to write a thank you letter to 2 Deputies in the Trinity Division for assisting me on Saturday, July 27 around 7pm. Unfortunately I misplaced his business card but wanted to at least try because they were so helpful.

Earlier that Saturday my black lab, Charlie, got loose and had been running through the woods. We had been searching for him for several hours when I received a call that he had been located on SR 54 and Mitchell. The Deputy had spotted my dog running along the road and stopped to help him, when Charlie decided to jump into the Patrol car. That’s when he called to let me know he had found my dog, and he and another Deputy would wait there for me to come pick him up.

That day could have ended much differently and I cannot express how grateful I am that it ended well. I realize that it is a dog, but this dog is my family and it truly made my world that the Deputies had stopped to help him. I know it’s always easier, and probably more frequent, to focus on the negative, and complain about what goes wrong, so I wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU. Seeing these 2 Deputies care about something like this, restored my faith, and truly touched my heart. I am so so so thankful for their help, and commend Pasco County for hiring such thoughtful people. I tried calling the Records Department so that I could mention the Deputies by name, but we weren’t able to find them. If you are able to pinpoint the names of the 2 Officers, I would like to personally say thank you, and make sure they were recognized.

Thank you for all you do, and for keeping our families (even the members with 4 legs) safe and happy.

I would like to thank the ladies who answer the phones and pass along info. I would like to thank the following Deputies for providing professional, compassionate and timely assistance in locating a dear ill lifetime friend of mine. Without their assistance I would still be worrying and having no idea of how to locate her. It required several trips to different locations and contacting another law enforcement agency but they encouraged me to contact them repeatedly if necessary.Thank You Deputy Jordan and Deputy Orgam for your efforts and positive results. Because of u I have had the burden of worry lifted from my shoulders.



Subject: Thanks!

We are writing to recognize outstanding service by an officer or officers whom we have never spoken with or met.

On 7/30/2013 at around 8:10 pm, my husband and I received calls from our home security monitoring system informing us that the garage door had opened at 8:08 pm. We had closed and locked all doors prior to leaving.

We immediately accessed a remote surveillance camera showing the inside of the home. From that, we observed a Pasco Sheriff cruiser pull up in front of the house. An officer then approached the front door and later, shined a flash light into the living room, checking, what appeared to be, every inch of the room, top to bottom. We could see the home illuminated by flashlight as the officer circled the home and yard. We were impressed at how thorough the check of the home appeared to be. The officer clearly dedicated ample time on a rainy night to ensure the security of our home.

We would like to thank the responding officer(s) for outstanding public service.

We would also like to thank everyone at the Pasco County Sheriff’s department for consistently demonstrating high professional standards.

Thank you so much,

Richard and Jeanie

That was a great presence in Zephyrhills yesterday.

It was a much needed show of force in an area that seems to be lawless most of the time.

I hope you were able to make a lot of arrests and that this is something that can happen more often in the near future, so that these criminals and pill pushers will move on to another county or rot in jail.

I would like to take a moment to compliment two of your Deputies. Corporal Housel, and his trainee, Deputy Bowen, responded to my home to investigate a theft. The tailgate was stolen from my truck. Both Deputies expressed genuine concern over the crime, and conducted themselves in a professional manner. They conducted a thorough investigation, and were able to lift a latent print from the rear of my truck. These Deputies projected an outstanding image for the Pasco

Sheriffs Office.

I recently took my class of Kindergarteners to Safety Town. I was very impressed with the professionalism of everyone involved. The presentation by Mr. John and Miss Elizabeth was excellent and very appropriate for 5 year olds. The safety house was an excellent addition to the trip and my kids learned so much!!

Yesterday, I had invited Deputy Bullock and Corporal Gardner to present their “choices” program to the youth at the Rap House. I am the assistant director and I had seen this presentation two times at various meetings. This time it was totally different in that I sat with youth while they saw the inmate interviews and the pictures of the facility and the pictures of the check- in process. This was extremely valuable for the youth. The youth were exceptional listeners and asked good questions which is because of the great information they received from these two officers. Seeing this with a room full of adults does not at all do justice to their presentation. Seeing it with a room full of at-risk youth was very powerful.

Thank you,Sheriff Nocco for your support of this experience. My hope is that this will be viewed by many youthful audiences to raise their thinking and awareness of choices. The officers were knowledgeable, kind and respectful. In fact they represented the Sheriff’s office in a highly effective manner…GOOD WORK!

Subject: Thanks for addressing citizen concerns!

On October 2012, I made contact with the sheriffs office reference a legitimate concern about a resident in Holiday, who was making what appeared to be narcotic transactions out in the open. Naturally there was excessive vehicle and foot traffic to his home and often times, vehicles would travel at a high rate of speed on the very street our children play and ride their bikes on.

Today, on my way to work I saw multiple members of the Sheriff’s office at the home in question and felt a huge sense of relief. I write today as a citizen who feels he has a voice in a community that many feel is a “lost cause”. I would like to thank Sherriff Nocco and the men and women involved on this case for their hard work, dedication and for protecting those of us who felt victimized. Keep up the great work, God Bless, be safe and thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

My daughter told me that you looked familiar to her and that your shirt had your name on it, so she Googled your image and verified that it was indeed you. I was so focused on getting out of the busy intersection, that I didn’t take notice. It is nice to know that with all of the issues that you and your agency have to deal with on a daily basis, you manage to take time to assist average citizens when the everyday inconveniences of modern day life put them in harm’s way. Thanks to you and the other officer that helped us, I was able to get my vehicle home safely and after a simple repair, we are back on the road!

Thank you for all that you and the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office do for our community.

I met Deputy Darren Hill today when he was investigating vandalism in “The Oaks” subdivision. We were a victim ourselves but I didn’t call because I felt it didn’t warrant the attention of your officers who had to have something more important to do than drive out to look at our “art”. I enjoyed talking to him and he told me that your office patrols the subdivisions over here and that was something I wasn’t aware of. He was great and the truth is I feel much better now that I know we have eyes on the ground. On behalf of our family, we appreciate the job you do.

I am a manager at one of the shops at Wiregrass Mall. I was able to participate yesterday in the “active shooter” SWAT training at Wiregrass Mall. I really appreciate both our mall management and the Pasco County Sheriff’s Department for allowing us to participate. I have worked in several malls both in Florida and Texas and have to say that we have the best security team. I feel very safe and love the fact that we have the Sheriff’s department on site. I love seeing Sheriff’s department cars in our parking garage.

I just want everyone in the Pasco Country Sheriff’s Department to know how much we appreciate you and everything you do for our community. I have attended several of the Renew Pasco events as well…you guys are AWESOME!

God bless and I pray for your safety every day!

On Sat 3/16 AM, I called to ask for a deputy to check out the vacant house next door. I had seen a man outside,the previous evening, that did not belong & noticed the back sliding door was open. Two deputies showed up in minutes- checked it out, found no- one, but reassurred me to call anytime. It was comforting to know they took my call seriously and were very professional.

I am sorry, I did not get either of the deputies names, but, please pass on my thanks! In this day & age it is a HUGE comfort to know help is only call away !!

Dear Sheriff Nocco,

At 8:00PM on 2/26/13 my husband, Bill, heard someone call for help from the canal next to our home. He plucked a very cold, tired, frightened young man, Joseph Merten, from the water and discovered that he had left a disabled vessel in the mangroves approximately 2 miles north of us. He informed us that he had left his elderly friend, Rick Smith, on the boat as he went for help. I called the Sheriff’s Office approximately 8:20 PM and had a deputy at our door within 10 minutes. Upon discovering that Mr. Smith had been out there for nearly 20 hours with no food or water, events went into high gear. Your marine unit, FWC and the Coast Guard all orchestrated a quick and successful rescue.

Your deputies and marine unit are to be commended for the timely manner in which they performed their duties. They are all a true credit to your agency. Unfortunately I was unable to remember names as it was quite chaotic at the time. My main concern was getting Joseph into a hot shower and into some warm, dry clothes. He arrived dehydrated and hungry, but left fat and happy!!

Again, thank you for providing this county with such compassionate and skilled people. They are true heroes.

Subject: Home Burglary

We were recent victims of a home burglary. Deputy D. Pugh and Deputy Joshua Yungaitis arrived and began the investigation. They were both extremely professional, thorough, and sympathetic during the investigation. They were later joined by a lady from forensics that I failed to get a card from that was equally professional. I received a call during the investigation from Detective J. Berberich explaining that it appeared the items taken had been recovered and asking me to come to the Trinity station to ID the items. When I arrived and met Detective Berberich and Detective D. McClure, I was treated with dignity and respect as they informed me of the situation and had me ID the items stolen.

These five individuals are exemplary representatives of the Pasco Sherriff’s office and all of Pasco County. Their professionalism, thoroughness, courteousness, and excitement to recover some of the items made a very difficult situation much easier to deal with.

Deputy Joshua Yungaitis, Deputy D. Pugh, Detective D. McClure, Detective J. Berberich, and the lady from Forensics made me proud to be a resident of Pasco County for 28 years and of our Sherriff’s Office.

We would like to compliment one of your deputies that we dealt with this morning.(1-28-13). We called about a stray dog following us around 4:30 a.m.. while we were walking our dog. It was a friendly dog, although she was limping & emaciated. Our dog does not get along well with other dogs. The dog was following us & we made sure she was able to cross U.S.19 without getting hit.

Your dispatchers were very friendly & helpful as was Deputy M.Silva. He said there was not much he could do, but he did give the dog his leftovers! My husband walked our dog home while Officer Silva carried the dog & put him in his car & drove her to our house, so we could put her in our yard until we could contact some shelters. Officer Silva was very kind, helpful, & so compassionate. We just wanted to commend him for his thoughtfulness & assistance.

Thank you.

D ear Sheriff Nocco:

I wanted to commend and thank Deputy D. Janicijevic. Deputy Janicijevic was called to intervene in a neighborhood situation. He handled himself in a very professional manner explaining to all parties the legal issues involved, e.g., neighbors’ rights, definition of trespassing, proper steps to take. He evaluated the situation, was empathetic and acted in a fair manner.

Incidents such as these are always unfortunate, but when they happen it is good to know that one can call upon the Sheriff’s office to assist. This is the second time assistance was needed, and it is the second time we received such

professional service. This is then not only a good reflection on the two officers, Deputy Janicijevic and Deputy Vavoulis, but also on the department. We hope we do not need this assistance again, but it is still a comfort to know that it is there when needed.

Thank you

I would like to take this opportunity to commend one of your officers I dealt with a couple of months ago. His name is Deputy T. Larese, he dealt with my issue with utmost haste, understanding, patience and sincerety and was a pleasure to deal with, sadly within many organizations there are rogue elements of it and too often we the public hear of these incidents via news or internet, this engineers a distrust between the public and police and so it is nice to report a positive action performed by one of your officers.

On a recent outing on our motorcycle we had a mishap and broke down on Hwy 52 and Secriat Road. We took off the leathers, then took a chance that someone would pull over to help us…No luck there! Then around the bend I yelled to Ken “I think I see a cruiser heading toward us..Thak the Lord! Sergeant Strube pulled up ( if she hadn’d been with the sheriff’s dept I wouldha’ve kissed her…..(we’ll I’ll let you fill that in!) Do you know she even phoned up to our CAA in Ontario to help order us a tow truck..Wow…I was impressed! It’s because of officers like Sergeant Strube that we feel safe here in Jasmine Lakes.

Subject: Outstanding Deputies

I can’t say enough about two outstanding Officers: Deputy T. Gasparino and Sergeant R. Scilex! Following a tip, they found my friend’s truck, that had been stolen. We quickly went to the scene. I was there, because I had AAA and my friend did not. We were there, two women with a bunch of kids, at the end of a dead end road. Yes, I was not comfortable. Once my friend had signed off on the vehicle, they could have left. But, going above and beyond, they stayed there with us until we had resolved a way to get the vehicle out of a sand pit.

This was no small matter! First, a stray dog jumped into the cab of the truck and would not leave. After Animal Control removed it, the AAA driver attempted to get the truck out. He couldn’t do it! Understand, this whole situation lasted about 3 hours. It eventually was pulled out and returned to the owners.

I was so very impressed with the professionalism, respect, and even kindness we were shown. It made me very proud to live in “Pasco” County. My heartfelt THANKS goes out to these two fine Officers!

I have lived at my address in Shadow Ridge since January 1996. For the first time ever we had a sheriff cruiser slowly drive down all the streets of our subdivision, during the dusk hours on Halloween. To those of us who were giving out candy to the trick or treaters, he shouted out Happy Halloween over his intercom. This was so re-assuring that our officers were on the streets as just a precautionary force.

I love it.

Just to inform you this morning was the first All Saints Day morn that our trees were not toilet papered, there were no smashed pumpkins in the streets and no vandalism (graffiti on the wooden fences). Just a coincidence? I don’t think so, and thanks so much for the support. We DO appreciate it.

Subject: Thank You – Mounted Officers

Dear Sheriff Nocco,

Yesterday, 30 Oct. at approximately 4:00 PM I was returning a friend to his residence in Beacon Woods. We were approaching Dearborn when up ahead we saw three horses and riders. I thought this very unusual for a community like Beacon Woods. I pulled to the left side of the road to let the equestrians pass when we noticed the riders were deputies or at least had on Sheriffs uniforms. They stopped adjacent to my vehicle so the passenger window was rolled down. What ensued was a very pleasant conversation for about five minutes. The riders, two women and a gentleman were most courteous.

After I had dropped off my passenger and was exiting the Woods I again saw the horses and riders on the lawn of one of the condos surrounded by a smiling group of residents, one elderly lady was in the process of planting a kiss on the nose of one of the horses!

The team made a great impression on the occupants, at least the ones I saw. I would hate to be a bad guy trying to escape a mounted officer.

Thank you,

Dear Sheriff Nocco,

I felt compelled to write this letter after an incident that happened on my street in Northeast Pasco County (Lacoochee) on the morning of September 14, 2012.

I, as well my family, were born and raised in Lacoochee. We, as well as many citizens of this part of the County, often feel that we are often overlooked. However, I feel that since you have been chosen to lead our Sheriffs Office, you have made a difference in our part of the county as well as the county as a whole. We not only have seen the Deputys presence in the community, but we see your efforts to remove drugs from our streets. We all know that illegal drugs, whether its Meth, prescription pain killers, or synthetic marijuana, are the root to so much of the crimes in our communities.

On the above stated morning, your department effectively executed a warrant at the corner of Slaughter Road and SR 575 in Lacoochee. The warrant resulted in in several arrests. The incident, to my knowledge, didnt even make the paper as of Sunday morning. However, it was front page worthy to me as it happened on my street. It may not have been a major bust, but we know wars are won by first winning the battles. We have complained about this particular residence both to your department as well as Code Enforcement many times. We know that it takes time, and we do appreciate you and your departments efforts.

I would not only like to commend your efforts, but those of the Officers that I had the privilege of dealing with Friday morning. They were very professional, personal, and I feel went above and beyond in an effort to assist me and my family in any way possible to eradicate the problems with this particular residence. Drugs are not the only issues at this residence. It is an eye sore to the community and has many issues considered to be both human health issues as well as environmental issue. As stated earlier, your officers went out of their way in getting all the other agencies involved in trying to eliminate all the other issues with this.

Subject: Thank You

Thank you Sheriff Nocco and your team for yesterday’s arrests! For anyone out there who are not aware, Pasco Deputies made 14 arrests yesterday with more to come. They are arresting the store clerks (AKA Drug Dealers) that are selling the stuff. That is excellent news and I love to see that Pasco is leading the charge. They are not waiting for some state level or federal ban, they are taking action! Gotta love that!

My 2 cents and for what it’s worth, Pasco County grew so fast that it never had a chance to develop a sense of community. Maybe this economic slowdown has been good for something.

And now this public private partnership has worked together towards solving a real problem. These are building blocks toward building a real community. I’m proud to live here in Pasco and I’m proud of our Sheriff and his teams exemplary performance… I want to see Pasco be all it can be. Just my 2 cents….

In addition: I think it was Ray Crock, founder of McDonalds who said, “When a competitor is drowning, stick a fire hose down his throat!” A little harsh maybe but I’m sure you get the message… We ain’t done yet.

I want to thank your office, the narc squad, detectives and swat team who were all involved in the taking down of the criminals that were living and dealing drugs from a house on my street. When we noticed a lot of activity at the house we contacted your office and continued to give information on the TIP line. Apparently this worked and they have now moved on to someother location which hopefully is being closely watched.

I highly recommend that others experiancing this problem get involved with your department and that they are patient giving you time to make a case. Sometimes these things take time and we all hate to think that nothing is being done. However, I believe by being active “eyes” for you we can get things done together.

From the time I called my son, and got to the end of my street (maybe 3 minutes) there was a Sheriffs squad car turning the corner, I flagged them down to inform them of the mistake as I was sure they were headed to my house to check. Unfortunately I have no names to commend for such a fast and timely response to my (thank God ) non emergency error.

Subject: Compliment and Suggestion

Long story short; I recently had some theft of my property from my truck, parked in my driveway late at night. I reported it and your department started the process and I thought okay, this will be pretty standard, but it really was more than standard.

I really just want to thank Deputy Elders for upholding a standard of interaction with the community that is aligned with everything I have been raised to believe about law enforcement. I think too often, I hear stories about parents who raise their children to be afraid of law enforcement; “if you act up the police will come and take you away”, rather than if you act up, “I’m going to discipline you my damned self”, and “if you ever need help, the police are here to protect you”. I can only assume that in your line of work, you all have an abundance of complaints from a society that has been trained to watch your every move, and you may not get to hear about how much you are all appreciated. Maybe you do, I’d like to hope so. In any case, I want to extend my thanks to Deputy Elders, the deputy who went out of his way to contact me and meet up with me to return the stolen items of mine you recovered (I apologize I don’t know his name, all I know is he’s a rookie), and the detectives working my case.

My suggestion, is to keep doing whatever it is you’re doing, because you’re doing it right.

A round of applause to you!!!!!

It was a pleasure and a privilege and hopefully, in the future we can be honored by having you visit us again.

Subject: Quick Response by Deputies

Just had to E you and tell you of an incident the other morning and the quick response by your Deputies.We had to call 911 concerning a male trying to break into our home and walking all around our yard trying all of our doors. I have an 8 pound poodle that alerted us to this. My husband called and within minutes he was apprehended. They were EXCELLENT and even though I did not get all their names would love to say Thank You for a great job !!!!!! As you have said people have to be your ears and eyes in the neighborhood —- and from what I have heard he had been in more yards prowling around — and also he had a Felony warrant from New York. I am proud to be one of your Volunteers —- You are doing an EXCELLENT job cleaning up Pasco !!!!!! Hoping to see you at TAT soon !!!!!!!

Sheriff Nocco:

I want to thank you for instituting the “Celebrate Recovery” program in Delta & Echo pods. I have been clean & sober for over 1 year thanks to a faith based program. I pray that it would be made available to the other pod’s, and possible twice a week.

Thank you again,

A detention detainee
