DEPUTY NANCY SUTO RETIRES AFTER 32 YEARS OF SERVICE @ 10 Feb 2022
(Citrus County, FL) Today, we celebrate the well-deserved retirement of Citrus County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Nancy Suto, who is officially hanging up her duty belt after three decades.
Nancy began her public service career with CCSO on October 23, 1989, as a Communications Officer, where only four years later, she would fulfill her dream of becoming a Deputy Sheriff. In addition to her law enforcement duties, she served as a Crime Prevention Deputy and a Field Training Officer (FTO). Nancy’s eight and half years assigned to the training unit were instrumental in the continuous training of the agency’s sworn members. Whether mentoring newly hired deputies or investigating criminal activity, Nancy always performed with an unwavering commitment to her position.
“We are so proud of Nancy’s many accomplishments for the betterment of our community and fellow law enforcement peers. May her retirement make up for the endless sacrifices she has made while protecting our community,” said Sheriff Prendergast. “Congratulations on an inspiring career; thank you for your service, and enjoy your well-deserved retirement.”
Nancy has been a sterling example of CCSO’s core value of ‘Service above Self’ throughout her career. She received a certificate of commendation for her involvement in ‘Operation Coin Toss,’ which targeted drug dealers throughout our community and resulted in the arrest of fifty-five individuals. She also received a certificate of appreciation from the Dunnellon Chief of Police and a unit citation for her involvement in furthering the development of our training program. Nancy has also received numerous letters of appreciation from citizens and law enforcement alike throughout her career.
Please join us in congratulating Deputy Nancy Suto on her steadfast commitment to our mission and selfless service to our community for the past three decades. Have a safe and healthy retirement!
