Collier County Sheriff’s Office plans to crack down on looting and curfew-breaking

NAPLES, Fla. — The Collier County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) said they have made 31 arrests in the last four days for looting or suspicious activity after the Collier County curfew (12 AM – 6 AM).

“We are just going to ask that you do not come to Collier County. It’s that simple. I’m quite sure that throughout all of Southwest Florida, if you aren’t here in an organized way to provide lawful helpful assistance to victims, do not come anywhere in Southwest Florida,” said Sheriff Kevin Rambosk.

Only NBC2 spoke to the Sheriff following massive damage across the county due to Hurricane Ian.

“There were so many damaged properties we knew we had to create a new security and safety plan with regard to protecting the entire community and all the damaged properties,” said Sheriff Rambosk.

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office said they have more deputies on the streets patrolling currently than at any time previously.

They are utilizing the Real Time Operations Center’s artificial intelligence and are continuously monitoring calls and reports of any suspicious activity.

“We know there are people coming into our community. That’s why we have so many deputies out there. We are using technology like the ROC where we are standing today. We have drones out. We have a curfew that has been in place, we are looking to extend that,” said Sheriff Rambosk.

Pilfering through property that has been thrown away and left on the curb is legal. However, if you notice someone trying to approach your property or home, you are encouraged to contact CCSO.

“You call us. We’ll check who is roaming around. If they shouldn’t be there, they’re going to jail,” said Sheriff Rambosk.

The Sheriff’s Office expects these activities to continue as the community rebuilds. They also warn of phony contractors – make sure you check a license and don’t give any money upfront.
