Over the course of the last several months the Sheriff has worked closely with Superintendent Brian Binggeli and his Staff to create a new “School Security” concept that goes well beyond past practices.

This collaborative effort creates an effective solution for safe school strategies and most importantly, safe learning environments for our students, educators, volunteers and staff.

This newly developed partnership provides Brevard Public Schools with a highly trained Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant that will now oversee District Security.

The initiative will immediately work to enhance communication and coordination between Brevard Public Schools and all Law Enforcement agencies. A partnership designed with the complete and unanimous support of our Brevard County Chiefs of Police and their respective agencies.

This unique collaborative effort is designed to enhance safety and security on school and district sites, while increasing learning opportunities for students, parents and staff.

The immediate advantage will be an enhanced interface with all local law enforcement agencies offering a seamless communication and response system, training opportunities, and a uniformed presence at School and District functions.

This new partnership reduces operational costs for both Brevard Public Schools and the BCSO through the elimination of the Director of District Security position, which will be replaced by BCSO Lt. Mike Scully.

Lt. Scully’s position will be funded by both Brevard Public Schools and the Sheriff’s Office.He is a 30-year law enforcement veteran with exceptional skills in law enforcement administration, patrol, site security and crime prevention.

The schools and the entire public safety community will gain increased coordination of the School Resource Program and a more effective communication process with students, parents and staff members pertaining to school and community safety issues.
