TAMPA, Florida (TodayNews) — A 22-year-old Florida Correctional Officer has been arrested on charges of domestic violence just three years into his career at the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office.
On Wednesday, July 19, deputies received a domestic violence complaint involving suspect Dylan Landmark, who has worked at the sheriff’s office since June 2020.
In response, the sheriff’s office launched a “comprehensive internal investigation to take a closer look at the incident,” the CCSO said in a statement.
Landmark was arrested a day later and charged with a felony in the household. He was later placed on unpaid administrative leave and taken to the Charlotte County Jail.
“We are not above the law. In fact, I demand higher standards from my employees, both jury and civilian,” said Sheriff Bill Prammell. “As sheriff of this county, I have a responsibility to uphold the trust and safety of our community. When any member of our agency faces allegations that could undermine that trust, we take it seriously.”
