I wanted to share this picture to your page. My son has autism and is part of a program thats very important us,Project Lifesaver. We went to Surfers Healing and saw two Deputies on the beach and said hello. As we were leaving Deputy Desso gave us a rundown on how the equipment works. Definitely awesome of him to do,we always wondered how it worked! Also,a big thank you to New Hanover County for participating in Project Lifesaver,it gives families of at risk individuals an extra peace of mind. Xoxo (Picture is Deputy Desso and my son David who has autism).
