Please join us on Thursday, June 1, from 5-8 p.m. at St. John Missionary Baptist Church as we remember Captain Charles “Bo” Harrison with a Celebration of Life Cookout.

On June 1, 2003 Capt. Harrison, 56, was performing surveillance duties around 2 a.m. near a nightclub on U.S. Highway 301 in Lacoochee, when a suspect shot at Capt. Harrison from the nearby woods. Capt. Harrison, who had been with the Pasco Sheriff’s Office for 31 years, was struck and killed just 15 days shy of his retirement.

The retired U.S. Army Ranger and Vietnam Veteran was the highest ranking African-American deputy in the history of the Pasco Sheriff’s Office. Capt. Harrison was a respected and beloved member of not of PSO, but of his entire community. He coached youth sports, was an active member of his church and received numerous awards for his work throughout his career.

Capt. Harrison continues to be an inspiration and a role model in the lives of those who knew and worked with him.

Thank you, Capt. Harrison, for your selfless service to the citizens of Pasco County. We are forever grateful for your service.
