St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office Receives Third Excelsior
Award from State Commission
22 June 2017

St. Johns County Sheriff David Shoar announced that the agency has been awarded reaccredited status by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation and is only the third agency in the state to receive the prestigious “Excelsior Agency” award for the third time. The Excelsior award
recognizes agencies with long term and successful reviews of their policies and procedures.

The CFA reviews all aspects of an agency’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services to determine compliance with 276 recognized standards of excellence. The award and Certificate of Reaccreditation was presented to Directors David Messenger and Becky Hesson on behalf of Sheriff Shoar and the Accreditation Team this week by the Commission. The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office was originally accredited in 1996 and this was the seventh reaccreditation.

St. Johns County joins the Orange County and St. Lucie County Sheriffs’ Offices as the only agencies in the state that have received the prestigious award for the third consecutive time. It is also limited to agencies that have earned five continuous unconditional assessments. Sheriff Shoar was honored to receive the award on behalf of the agency and said, “It is my continued commitment to our community
that we will always strive to be the best we can be in protecting and serving our citizens.”

Undergoing the voluntary state accreditation process provides an agency with a quality assurance review and encourages intense self-scrutiny, resulting in more efficient and effective daily operations. Becoming accredited by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation is considered a significant accomplishment and this status is held in high esteem by the criminal justice community.

The Commission spoke highly of the agency’s recent cooperative effort with the North Florida Regional Planning Council and the University of North Florida to review zone configurations within the County. They were encouraged by the agency’s use of regional data supported by outside entities, to make an informed estimate of the manpower needed to serve St. Johns County in to the future. They encouraged other agencies to reach out to resources in their own communities to assist them with reviewing major projects.

The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office is up for its 8th international accreditation (CALEA) review and is in line for a similar award internationally. The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Inc. granted the Sheriff’s Office its first international accreditation in 1991 and could present the
agency with the Accreditation with Excellence Award next month.

TWO SOUGHT FOR BUSINESS BURGLARY
22 June 2017

Two male suspects are being sought in connection with a burglary to a business in the 700 block of Horton’s Trace (IGP & World Commerce, WGV) nearly two weeks ago. The two men were observed on surveillance video arriving at the business (St. Mary’s Seafood & More) at 3:30 a.m. on Saturday, 10 June.

The two suspects arrived in a white van, walked to the rear of the business and entered the covered patio. The two then removed two Samsung 50-inch televisions along with three neon signs and left the business 20 minutes later.

The two suspects were described as white males in their 20’s or 30’s wearing t-shirts, shorts and gloves.

Anyone with any information concerning these individuals or this investigation is asked to contact Detective Kyle Braig at the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office at (904) 209-2148, or by email at kbraig@sjso.org.
