PCSO Detention Sergeant to Serve As PCC Detention Academy Coordinator

In a joint project between the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Polk Community College, PCSO Detention Sgt. Gary Casini has been named to serve as the Detention Academy Coordinator for the college.

In his new role, Sgt. Casini will be in charge of coordinating the PCC detention certification program (which PCSO detention recruits attend in order to receive certification).

In addition to serving as an instructor himself, Sgt. Casini will be responsible for coordinating additional instructors as needed for the course. He also will focus on developing advanced and specialized training for detention. Given his new assignment, he has been transferred to the PCSO training section. He has served in his new role for approximately two months.

The PCC/PCSO coordinator position is funded by PCC, but staffed by a member of the Sheriff's Office. Sgt. Casini, who has been with PCSO for 9 years, was recommended for the spot by a review board. He previously has  served as a detention instructor for  in-house training, and has held a key role in the detention deputy training evaluation program for the  last three years.
