Osceola County – The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office has openings for a self-defense awareness program for women scheduled for October 20, 2008 at 6:00 p.m. Self Defense Awareness Familiarization Exchange or SAFE is designed to educate women on how to protect themselves if they should become a victim. The 2-hour class teaches that 90% of self-defense is awareness, risk reduction and avoiding confrontation, while only 10% is physical.

“Taking responsibility and educating yourself is the first step in staying safe. Although you may not be able to prevent an attack from occurring, there are ways to protect yourself and lessen your chances of becoming a victim,” states Sheriff Hansell.

To sign up for the free class, call (407) 348-1105 or email aveg@osceola.org.

POINCIANA, Fla. — An elementary school principal in Poinciana is accused of paying his son to work at the school even though his son has a criminal record. That record includes a robbery.

 

Eyewitness News confronted the principal at Palmetto Elementary School in Poinciana on Thursday about why he’s been paying his son to work at the school. The school district didn’t know about his criminal record until Eyewitness News informed them.

 

District officials said they’re now looking into it.

 

Eyewitness News did a background check and the principal’s son has four arrests and a conviction for robbery. He was on the job at the school when Eyewitness News walked in the office and asked for him Thursday.

 

Roger Blase has enough mug shots to fill a page in the school yearbook and school is exactly where the 36-year-old was Thursday. His father, Luis Alvarez, is the principal at Palmetto Elementary.

On September 20 at approximately 1:31 p.m., Osceola County Sheriff’s deputies responded to 622 McKinley Court in Poinciana in reference to a burglary. Upon arrival, deputies observed a vehicle in the driveway with the engine on and all of the windows rolled down. As deputies approached the residence they saw three juveniles running from the back of the house. The juveniles attempted to flee by jumping over a fence. Deputies were able to take all three into custody and after further investigation they located burglary tools and items stolen from the residence.

Remesh Mohabir, Hollis Campbell and Sashane Thompson and charged them with Armed Burglary, Criminal Mischief and Grand Theft. All three were taken to the Osceola County Juvenile Detention Center.

Just got word from the Osceola School District Community relations office that a second student who is being treated in a local hospital has been confirmed to have MRSA. The student is responding well to treatment, health officials seemed to have started treatment early enough with this student with high expectations for full recovery. That is all I know at this time.

Osceola County – On October 1, the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office will begin overseeing fire rescue communications and all 911 operations for the Osceola County which were previously departments of the Board of County Commissioners. The plan, which was negotiated several months ago and takes effect with the new budget year, includes 26 personnel and a budget of nearly $3.3 million dollars.
For now, personnel will continue to work at the current dispatch center on Simpson Road. Dispatch personnel will move to a new communications center near the Sheriff’s Office Administration Complex on East 192 when the building is completed in June of 2009.
Under the agreement, fire rescue dispatchers and 911 operations employees will become Sheriff’s Office personnel with equal benefits and pay. The new plan alleviates transfer calls from one dispatch center to another and cross trains employees on both law enforcement and fire rescue calls.
“Consolidation makes our operation more efficient and allows us to enhance our service to the citizens of Osceola County,” stated Sheriff Bob Hansell.
A Swearing In Ceremony is planned to welcome the 26 new employees on Monday, October 6 at 4:00 p.m
