Highlands County is situated in south central Florida, northwest of Lake Okeechobee. It is bordered on the east by the Kissimmee River, and has a total area of 1,106. It was created in 1921 from a portion of DeSoto County. As of 2010, the population was 98,786, with one third of the residents age 65 or above, making it the fifth oldest population in the United States. The county takes its name from the gently rolling hills of the area, contrasting with the flat topography of much of the rest of the state. In addition to tourism, the production of oranges and beef is important in the county.

The county seat is Sebring, established in 1912 by George E Sebring. The founder was a pottery manufacturer and developer from Ohio, where there is also a town named for him. The oldest city in the county is Avon Park, incorporated in 1886 and named after Stratford-upon-Avon in England.

The county boasts of over a dozen golf courses and more than 84 lakes offering opportunities for boating, sailing, skiing, and fishing. There are many resort and retirement communities. The Sebring International Raceway is a grand prix style racecourse built on part of a former Air Force training base used during World War II. The rest of the base is used as an airport. The Air Force still maintains an active bombing range and air-ground training complex in the county, Avon Park Air Force Range.

The Highlands County Jail is under the direction of the Detention Bureau of the Sheriff’s Office. Located at 338 South Orange Street, Sebring, Florida 33870, the facility was built in 1956. It has a capacity of 512 inmates, including males and females. The average daily population of the jail is 384 prisoners. Video visitation is allowed; see the website for rules and scheduling information.

Thank you for all the support during our most difficult days

May has been a rough month for our Highlands County Sheriff’s Office family. For the first time in more than 20 years, we lost a deputy in the line of duty when Deputy William Gentry was shot on May 6 and passed away a day later.

The loss of Deputy Gentry was a jarring and tragic chapter in the nearly 100-year history of our agency. Deputy Gentry was the third person we lost in the line of duty, but it was the first time one of our deputies had been taken from us by the actions of a criminal. It was a jarring reminder of what everyone in law enforcement knows deep down inside but tries not to think about -- that each call can be your last.

As dark as the days between Deputy Gentry’s death and his funeral were for all of us, there was a bright and shining light that helped us make it through. That light came from you, our local community, and from people all over the country.

Whether it was leaving flowers at the memorial set up outside our office in Sebring, making a donation to help the Gentry family, coming out to line the roads or simply just letting us know you were thinking of us, the support we received was welcomed.
I can’t count the number of people who reached out to us, and continue to do so.

In addition to messages from here at home, we received hundreds of messages of support from all over the country and from people of all ages. Some of the most touching support came from our youngest residents. Several schools held fundraisers to help the Gentry family, and many of those were ideas that came from the students, not parents or teachers. If these children are any indication, our future is in good hands.

Students also sent in dozens and dozens of cards and letters. Many of them were for the Gentry family specifically, but many more were just addressed to our deputies. We hung a lot of them up in the deputies’ room and had enough left over to put a card in each deputies’ mailbox. It just so happens that Deputy Gentry’s funeral took place during National Police Week, so those cards and letters served a double purpose.

I want to thank all of you who reached out to us this month. I also want to thank all the law enforcement officers -- some from as far away as California and Boston -- and elected officials who came to help us honor Deputy Gentry at his memorial service. I particularly want to thank Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd and Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott for going above and beyond in their assistance. To say their help was invaluable doesn’t do it enough justice.

For those of you who still want to help, you can make donations to the Gentry family through the sheriff’s office or you can also donate in his name to www.rescueranch.com, the charity the family has chosen in recognition of Deputy Gentry’s love of his pets.
Another way you can honor Deputy Gentry’s memory is to register to be an organ donor. Even in death, Deputy Gentry was a hero and saved six lives through his organ donation. As many as 70 others will benefit from his tissues.

Our deputies will continue to wear the black mourning band over their badges until June 7, as tradition is to wear them for a month after the end of watch for a fallen member of your agency. But even when we take them off, we will never forget Deputy Gentry, just as we will never forget the outpouring of love and support we got from all of you.

I speak for all of us here at the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office when I say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You will never know how much it meant to us.
