The Lee County Sheriff’s Office has completed its investigation into the recent inappropriate and unacceptable comments posted on the agency’s Facebook page.
During this investigation, a civilian employee with access to the Sheriff’s Office Facebook account voluntarily came forward to advise he had posted the comments.
The employee expressed remorse and apologized for having made the posts, which he understands were completely unacceptable. The employee further stated that no other employee or supervisor was aware he had posted the comments.
Sheriff Carmine Marceno immediately suspended the employee and directed he be re-assigned to other duties.
“This civilian employee’s conduct was unacceptable. Abuse of any kind, including written or verbal abuse will not be tolerated. I demand the same high level of professionalism from our civilian members as from our sworn deputies,” stated Sheriff Carmine Marceno.
