The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office Quarterly Awards Ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. at the Falkenburg Road Jail Assembly Room., 520 North Falkenburg Road in Tampa.
We will honor retirees and longevity employees to include an employee that has been with the office for 35 years.

Awards will be presented for the Civilian of the Quarter, Detention Deputy of the Quarter, and the Law Enforcement Deputy of the Quarter.
A few of the awards that will be presented:
- Life Saving Award to a deputy that saved the life of an individual that was working on a gutter when they touched a 7,000-volt power line.
- Distinguished Performance award to a deputy that has been responsible for permanently housing over 50 chronically homeless men, women, children and families while being assigned to the Homeless Initiative Program.
- Several deputies will be honored for their personal generosity in assisting less fortunate individuals in the county either by purchasing meals, personal hygiene items, Christmas baskets or water.
The public and media are invited.
