On Tuesday September 20th a resident of Pensacola received two awards from Sheriff David Morgan. Wesley Warrick, a 2016 graduate of West Florida High School, is a very active member of the Diamond View Neighborhood Watch. For the past 8 years, from the age of 10, he has assisted with patrols, attended regular meetings and helped with special events. On many occasions Wesley Warrick has spotted drug activity and other criminal acts in progress while on patrol with other Diamond View watch members. His information, which was communicated to dispatch, led to the arrest of a number of felons. Wesley Warrick has accumulated 455 hours of volunteer time and is thereby commended for his efforts on behalf of his community which have materially assisted in the safety and security of the Diamond View area. Wesley also was responsible for the name of the group and their logo saying: “Diamond View, we are watching out for you.”
A Letter of Commendation was presented as well as the designation of Honorary Deputy. Attending the ceremony were a number of citizens including his parents, members of the Diamond View Neighborhood Watch and others.
Defending champions, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office defeated the Pensacola Police Department by a score of 15-10 in the Guns and Hoses Tournament. Though a few raindrops tried to dampen the mood a large crowd responded to the event and a good time was had by all. The ECSO displayed a large incident command vehicle and the mounted unit appeared to the delight of the many children attending. There were a lot of free giveaways for those of you who attended the event. If you missed it, we do this every year. Hope to see you at Guns and Hoses in 2017!
By mutual agreement the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office and the Police Benevolent Association, no negotiations will take place on Friday, September 16, 2016.read more
