Pinellas sheriff's Deputy Curtis Kindle is Masons' deputy of the year

Dunedin Masonic Lodge 192 recently named Pinellas County sheriff's Deputy Curtis Kindle its 2009 Deputy of the Year for his outstanding service to the community.

Ken Giesow, senior warden of Lodge 192, presented the award to Kindle at a special dinner at the lodge with more than 50 people in attendance, including Sgt. William Byrd, Kindle's supervisor.

Kindle began his career with the Sheriff's Office in 1995 and four years later was transferred to the Patrol Operations Bureau. From there he went to the ECHO (DUI) unit in 2001, making more than 600 DUI arrests. By request, he transferred back to the Patrol Operations Bureau in 2005, then became a Field Training Officer from 2006 to 2008. He left FTO in January and currently works in Dunedin.

He and his wife, Kimberly, are Dunedin residents and have three sons.
