Fort Myers Police Department

It’s been about a year since we last sat down to talk with Fort Myers Police Chief Derrick Diggs. He's he’s been on the job since August of 2016, having taken the helm of a police department with more than a hundred cold case homicides, a lack of trust from some parts of the community it was trying to protect, and internal issues that were later parsed out in a third party audit- which was made public upon its completion a year ago. We sit down with Chief Diggs to get an update on progress he's made so far, including the recent arrest in the downtown Fort Myers Zombicon shooting that happened in 2015.

And today’s parents now face questions like, “is there such a thing as a ‘right time’ to give a child their own smart phone,” or just “how much screen time is appropriate” for young people?
