Susan Benton is a ‘Florida Icon'

Highlands County sheriff, Sebring; age 67

Art Levy | 11/28/2016

Highlands County sheriff Susan Benton talks about lessons she’s learned through life: “Early in my life, I began to develop, basically, a calling to service. I didn’t know exactly what. Initially, I thought about a religious life. I went to the police academy in Miami in 1974, and after I hit the streets doing my initial patrol functions, it started to come together. I began to come across intoxicated people, people on drugs, homeless people and people who chose to do bad things. It was a vocation much like I imagined from the life of Jesus, walking around on earth. He didn’t pick and choose who he spoke to or who he helped. That’s when it clicked that a career in law enforcement was for me.”
