BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — Today I had the pleasure of welcoming 9 new members to our agency and assigning 5 members to new assignments and promotions. 

We are very proud to announce that the Deputy of the Year for the Brevard County Sheriff's Office, Agent Mike Spadafora was selected tonight by the Brevard County Association of Chiefs of Police as the County’s Law Enforcement Officer of the Year. I would like to personally thank the Chiefs of Police Association for their consideration; the nominee from each of Brevard’s law enforcement agencies was incredible. Agent Spadafora has literally rescued countless children from a living nightmare, from locations around the world, most from places where they should feel safe, within their own homes. He has a very unique skill set; he hunts those that prey on our children. He uncovers those that seduce and victimize our children. He brings them from the shadows to face justice! His heart and soul are completely committed to the protection of children, and unfortunately, there are far too many monsters out there. (BCSO image)
