Pat Allison was recognized for his efforts organizing the Bruce Rossmeyer’s Destination Daytona Motorcycle Skills Challenge.
The Volusia County Sheriff's Office recently named Ormond Beach resident Pat Allison was Deputy of the Quarter.
Allison was recognized not only for his law enforcement work, but his efforts helping to organize the Bruce Rossmeyer’s Destination Daytona Motorcycle Skills Challenge in September. The challenge brought 80-plus police motorcycle riders from across Florida to compete against each other, and the event raised more than $50,000 for the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches and Concerns of Police Survivors. Aside from his role in planning the challenge, he also participated in it and took second place in the fairing division.
On the road, Allison remained at the top of the traffic unit in terms of self-initiated activity, continuing his hard work to protect the public from DUI drivers. As the lead instructor for the motor unit, he made his colleagues better riders. He represented VSCO in outside details like Deltona’s Independence Day fireworks show and National Night Out, where he performed a motorcycle demonstration for the public.
He also collected food donations during Hurricane Matthew to make sure deputies working long hours through the storm were kept fed.
