BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — Earlier this week, Deputies from our agency along with Officers from the Satellite Beach Police Department, Palm Bay Police Department and the Melbourne Police Department participated in a fashion show at the Brevard Women’s Expo that helped raise money for The Children’s Hunger Project.

BCSO-STAR-180I had a great time serving as the Emcee of the event as Deputies and Officers appeared on stage wearing their Dress Uniforms and later appeared wearing their tactical gear. Each Officer proudly modeled their agency’s uniform while also being recognized for their outstanding accomplishments as Law Enforcement Officers.

Each participant volunteered their time to be a part of the fundraising effort because they know first hand how important it is to give back to our community.
