Sheriff Mike Scott has appointed Deputy First Class Darryl Aubuchon to be the Lee County Sheriff's Office liaison with the Cape Coral Construction Industry Association effective immediately. The two will outline plans for the 2014 LCSO/CCCIA Liaison Program Thursday, Aug. 8, at The Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village when the CCCIA will hold its monthly dinner meeting.
Aubuchon has served Lee County for five years as a patrol deputy now assigned to the LCSO Public Services Division. He is the co-founder with his brother and former state Rep. Gary Aubuchon, of Aubuchon Homes and has 23 years experience in the construction industry. He is a past president of the CCCIA (2006) and served more than 10 years on the Lee County Government Liaison Committee where he served as chairman for the last two years of that time.
During his tenure as president of the CCCIA in 2006, construction site theft was at an all-time high resulting in the initial creation of the LCSO/CCCIA Liaison Program.
"This on-going partnership is critical at a time when we are beginning to see a dramatic resurgence in the building industry in Cape Coral and across the Lee County," said Sheriff Scott. "The appointment of DFC Aubuchon is an obvious choice as we continue our initiative to prevent construction site crime."
"Darryl is an excellent choice for this assignment," said Moe Beneke, executive director and CEO of the CCCIA. "The years of his work in the construction industry, his long history with our Association and his law enforcement background provide a rich mix of experience that makes him the perfect candidate. I look forward to working with him and the Sheriff's Office in the years ahead."
In addition to his service with the Lee County Hurricane Task Force, Aubuchon worked with the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Texas Tech University to create the nation's first FEMA residential safe room. He constructed one of three new hurricane code compliant project homes for the State of Florida and he served on the committee that revised the engineering and residential drainage standards for the City of Cape Coral.
