BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – I was honored to present Chief Susan Jeter with her retirement credentials and service plaque recognizing her for 28 years of dedication and commitment to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.

Susan has been an incredible member of our agency since she was hired in November 1986 by Sheriff Jake Miller as a Corrections Deputy. Throughout her career, Susan has been promoted through the ranks holding every attainable rank in the Brevard County Jail.

In October of this year I asked Susan to help direct and coordinate the transition of Animal Services for our Agency and I could not be more proud of her efforts and the success of that transition.

Susan is well respected throughout the state as an incredible friend, mentor and leader. In 2013, Governor Rick Scott appointed Chief Jeter to the Florida CJST Commission. Prior to her incredible career with the Sheriff’s Office, Susan was a decorated military veteran, serving in the United States Army.

Susan leaves behind a strong legacy with our agency for her innovation and cost saving measures that allow our Jail to operate as the most cost efficient Correctional Facility in Central Florida.

One of her proudest accomplishments however would be her implementation of the Paws and Stripes Program that partners rescue dogs with female inmates who help provide them with obedience training to ready them for adoption while teaching the inmates compassion and responsibility.

Please join me in congratulating Chief Susan Jeter for a job well done as she moves on to the next phase of her life. She has accomplished so much in her service to the citizens of Brevard and truly deserves a wonderful retirement.
