C.J.’s mother posted a sweet thank you stating “ Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. He had so much fun and really made his and my day. He is right, you guys really are super heroes. I am proud to have you all serving my community and am just baffled at how much you all went above and beyond for him. God bless you all and thank you again”
Posted quite a few photos of C.J. on vehicles, in vehicles and with members of the Office. here is just one with what they wrote.
Thanks to C.J. and his mom for bringing in 4-year-old C.J. for a tour of our District Office in Deltona on Saturday. Not sure who had more fun — C.J. or our deputies — but as you can see, it was smiles all around. After all of the fun was over, the deputies gave C.J. a warm send-off that included a goodie bag full of treats. C.J.’s mom reports that he had an amazing time and “was absolutely spoiled” by his new deputy friends. Made our day too!

Fount at the City News Blog a photo of Lakeland, Fl. Officer Cortes posing with a young girl who was celebrating her birthday in a local establishment. She had been dancing around happily when the officer wished her a happy birthday, left momentarily and returned with a gift to commemorate the occasion.
The two posed for a photo and it was posted with the following words of thanks from Talissa Enochs:
“We took Tori out to eat for her birthday. She was wearing a birthday sash and twirling around in front of the police officer. He told her Happy Birthday and her face just lit up! We went on to order our food and the officer left. He then came back with a stuffed animal to give to her! He said she was just too cute not to go get her something!!! What a blessing to have such awesome officers in our community!”
Thank You Officer Cortes for being YOU and showing us the great things law enforcement officers do everyday.”
Thomas Feltman 84 of Alabaster, Al. is a very proud veteran of the United States Air Force who served 21 years and was in Korea. During Halloween vandals took the American Flag he has proudly flown outside his home and desecrated it. It disturbed Feltman greatly as he stated “It’s not just a piece of cloth. It means everything to me,” he described the condition of the flag he cherished “It was in quite a bit of disarray,” Feltman said. “It was hanging like it was a damp cloth.”.
He decided to report the vandalism to the local Police in Alabaster believing there was little that would be done. The events that occurred shortly after brought him to tears.
