Deputies Respond to 9-1-1 Hang Up and Save a Life

On 05-03-19 just after 2:30 a.m., Deputy Jeff McDougal was dispatched to a 9-1-1 Hang Up in the Ridge Manor area. The address is being withheld per FS 365.171 (12).

The 9-1-1 call (hang up) originated from a cell phone, therefore McDougal responded to the area where the phone was mapping. Upon arrival in the area, McDougal observed a residence with the lights on, so he made his way there.

Officer Valor: End of Watch

by KENNETH ANTON

Hernando Sun Reporter

On Tuesday April 30, 2019, I was honored with the opportunity to attend a memorial service for a fallen Hernando County Sheriff’s Office K-9 officer: Officer Valor.

I entered the Hernando County Emergency Management building approximately twenty minutes before the ceremony. The family and officers close to Valor were already seated and reminiscing, a delicate air of mixed emotions (joy, sadness, trepidation) enveloped the mourners as they prepared for the ceremony.
