Corrections Officer Fernando Bello  
At 6 a.m. on May 28th, 2023, Officer Bello was working the jail board in our dispatch center when a 911 call came in from a Hispanic female.  At the time neither of the Communications Officers could understand or speak Spanish.  Officer Bello, who is a native of Brazil, speaks not only English but Portuguese and some Spanish.  With this knowledge, he was able to translate on the fly for the dispatcher to get medical help to the caller.  

 

“I am extremely proud of Officer Bello for stepping out of his comfort zone and getting help to one of our citizens. ” – Sheriff Vanoven
