BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of spending the day with our “Sheriff For A Day,” Deputy Frank Santiago from our motor unit.

Deputy Santiago has been a member of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office for over 18 years and currently serves the citizens of our county as a member of our motor unit.

Deputy Santiago is also heavily involved as a volunteer in West Melbourne where he coaches youth football.

The “Sheriff For A Day” Program chooses one member of our agency each month to spend the day with the Sheriff.

They learn about the various aspects involved in serving as Brevard County Sheriff.

I would like to personally thank Frank for spending the day with me and for everything he does for our agency and citizens.
