Law enforcement officers on patrol work independently on the road. And the information they receive before they hit the streets is critical. But, in a time of pandemic, that information is getting delivered a little differently.

We received an exclusive look at how Collier County Sheriff’s Office is adapting during the effort to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Usually the shift starts with a cup of coffee. Now, it starts with a temperature check.

“The shift briefing is a time-honored tradition in law enforcement,” CCSO Lt. Rich Hampton told WINK News. “It’s where that sergeant, that supervisor can look at his troops and make sure they’re ready to perform the duties of a deputy sheriff.”
