Collier County Sheriff’s Office -An announcement from Sheriff Kevin Rambosk



Although CCSO has had duty to intervene language in policy for several years, both in our code of ethics policy and our jail operations policy, today I signed into official policy a very clear and specific directive that our CCSO deputies have a duty to intervene with regard to use of force. That policy is as follows:

“Deputies have a duty to intervene to prevent or stop the use of excessive force by another law enforcement officer or corrections officer.”

As a CALEA “Accredited with Excellence” agency, we are constantly reviewing our policies and procedures in order to provide the most professional of best practices to our community. I am committed to the ongoing review of our policies and practices for continued improvement of safety, respect, fairness and equality for all.
