The Sheriff’s Office, through a regional Homeland Security grant of 9 counties in southwest Florida, houses this equipment and has the ability to use it for various needs when not needed by another county.
Sheriff Benton says, “You might see the equipment at various locations around the county especially during the rush of the holiday season. We are using it as a crime prevention measure by watching major shopping area parking lots for thefts and to have an eye in the sky to protect our citizens.”
A special note from Sheriff Benton:
The men and women of the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office wish all of you a very safe and peaceful holiday.”
