It is with great sadness that we share the passing of MCSO Sgt. Chris Atkinson. He passed away unexpectedly at his home this morning of natural causes.
Please keep his family, friends, and the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office family in your thoughts and prayers, as we all deal with this sudden loss.
Chris served the citizens of Manatee County for more than 37 years and was an active member in the community that he loved. He will be greatly missed.
