Crisis Intervention Training

Today, September 20th, 2019, DeSoto County Sheriff's Office Deputies successfully completed 40 hours of advanced training in Mental Health Awareness, as we partnered with Charlotte Behavioral Healthcare in Punta Gorda. Sheriff James F. Potter would like to congratulate Sergeant Jason Sandoval, Deputy Deke Livingston, Deputy Ethan Vitali and Deputy Chaz Hernandez on their graduation from Crisis Intervention Training.

Mental Illness and addiction are just two of the many issues our deputies are confronted with every day. This training will enhance the level of service we are  able to provide to our citizens and help keep everyone safe.
