Ground Broken On Wednesday In Titusville For Deputy Barbara A. Pill Law Enforcement Facility
BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – To honor the memory of fallen Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Barbara Pill, members of the community, county Leaders, local law enforcement and the representatives of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office broke ground Wednesday at the future location of the Deputy Barbara A. Pill Law Enforcement Facility in Titusville.
This building will serve as the new Brevard County Sheriff’s Office North Precinct headquarters.
Deputy Barbara Pill’s husband, Steven Pill, her Agent Jeremy Pill and Deputy Ryan Pill, all took part in the ground breaking ceremony.
Also participating in the ceremony were Brevard County County Commissioners Robin Fisher and Trudie Infantini, along with Deputy County Manager Stockton Whitten and retired Brevard County Sheriff Jack Parker.
The current Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey said the sorrow over the loss of Deputy Barbara Pill continues a year after her tragic death.
“One year ago today each of us felt the loss when we learned that Deputy Barbara Pill had made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty,” Ivey said. “In a split second, Steve lost his wife, Jeremy and Ryan lost their mother, our agency lost a Deputy, and our community lost a friend.
“This new facility is dedicated to Barbara and will be a constant reminder of her dedication and commitment to the Brevard County community.”
Deputy Barbara Pill, 52, a 30-year law enforcement veteran, was shot to death by a suspect involved in the possible theft of furniture from a hotel that she had stopped near John Rodes Boulevard in Melbourne on March 6, 2012.
Suspects Brandon Bradley, 23 and Andria Kerchner, 20, face multiple charges regarding Pill’s death including first-degree murder.
