Destin Chamber Presents $500 Donations to CBA & Sheriff’s Office Posse
Destin, Fla., June 19 – On June 9, the Destin Chamber presented $500 donations to the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance (CBA) and the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office Posse, in appreciation of their assistance during Destin’s 7th Annual Bayou, Bay & Beach 5K, 10K & 15K.
The CBA is committed to sustaining and providing optimum utilization of the Choctawhatchee Basin watershed. Since the race courses offer views of the Choctawhatchee Bay and waterways of Destin, the CBA is the perfect partner for the race. The health of the area’s water resources is the foundation of its identity and economy. Be it fishing, tourism, or quality of life, everything revolves around a healthy watershed. For more information about CBA programs, please visit BasinAlliance.org or follow Facebook.com/BasinAlliance.
The Posse is a group of more than 50 citizens, who donate their time in assisting the Sheriff’s Office in many roles, including prisoner transport, courtroom security, crime scene guards, escorts, festival and event security, and more. Members are trained by Florida’s Justice Standards and Training Commission (CJSTC) and are certified as “Auxiliary Law Enforcement Officers.” Many have full-time jobs, in addition to their volunteer role with the Sheriff’s Office.
