On February 10th, 2014 members of the Levy County Sheriff’s Office and C.O.P. (Citizens on Patrol) volunteers met to recognize the 2013 C.O.P. Volunteer of the Year. The C.O.P. Program is made up of civilian volunteers who donate their time and talents to assist the Sheriff’s Office. These volunteers provide assistance with traffic control, funeral escorts, special events, courthouse duties and other needs.  These volunteers assist both LCSO and every taxpayer with their volunteer service to the County. 

Sheriff McCallum was honored to deliver this year’s C.O.P. Top Volunteer award to Stella Damann. Sheriff McCallum said “Every C.O.P. Member is deserving of this award but we can only pick one.” Stella joined the C.O.P. Program in 1994, and since then has donated almost 4000 hours. Please join in congratulating Stella for her accomplishments and award.  

C.O.P members and staff enjoyed a great meal of barbequed chicken (prepared by Lt. Shawn Hunt and Deputy Keith O’Steen) followed by delicious desserts (prepared by Mrs. Wilda Long and Mrs. Laurie Beauchamp) as an expression of our gratitude for the hours they volunteer.
