Colonel Ramsay receives award from American Legion

Sheriff’s Office Colonel Rick Ramsay was recently chosen as the American Legion Law Enforcement Officer of the Year by the Keys Memorial Post 145, in Islamorada. He was given the reward in recognition of his extensive community involvement.

Colonel Ramsay serves on numerous boards in Monroe County, including those of the United Way, Florida Keys Children’s Shelter, the Guidance Care Center for Mental Health, Fishermen’s Hospital, the MARC House and the Florida Keys Institute of Criminal Justice Training Advisory Board. He is also involved in many fundraising efforts throughout the year, including American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life and the Salvation Army.

“I am proud to receive this award, although there are many others in the law enforcement community who give countless hours of service to local community groups,” he said. “Monroe County is my home and I enjoy being involved in the wonderful, close knit community here.”
