About Deputy Dogs
The Compassionate Cops' Pets on Patrol program is recruiting residents and their pets to serve as community lookouts while out on their daily walks.
Headed by Lieutenant “Bosco,” a 7-pound Havapoo-Poo, and Deputy “Chance,” an abused and abandoned Florida Cur rescued by Lee County Domestic Animal Services and later adopted and deputized by Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno. The Deputy Dog Pets on Patrol initiative encourages pet owners to pay attention for suspicious activity while out with their pets. They are also encouraged to help prevent animal abuse in their neighborhoods by reporting neglect or abuse.
Anything seen or sniffed can be reported to the Lee County crime prevention hotline, (239) 477-1000.
