The Martin County Sheriff’s Office mourns the loss of one of their own. 54-year old Srgt. Bruce Pinkman passed away Friday morning after battling cancer. Sergeant Pinkman began his career as a road patrol deputy with the Martin County Sheriff’s Office in 1989. He was later a detective with the Criminal Investigations Division before becoming a school resource officer. Sergeant Pinkman ended his career in the Traffic Enforcement Unit where he created the Take 5, Stay Alive Campaign, the goal of which was to get drivers to take 5 seconds to buckle their seat belt.

Sergeant Pinkman retired in 2015, but stayed active as a Reserve Deputy. Sergeant Pinkman opted not to have a memorial service, but he was a lover of dogs. The Martin County Sheriff’s Office suggested honoring Sergeant Pinkman by taking your dog for an extra walk, or donating time to an organization that cares for animals.
