BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — During our recent Swearing-In Ceremony, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office officially named the two newest members of our Corrections K-9 Team who were recently donated to the agency by the Jimmy Ryce Foundation.

BCSO-STAR-180Several weeks ago on Facebook our agency asked members of our community to help us name the twin puppies that will be trained as members of our Corrections K-9 Team to help search for missing children, missing persons and criminals who have fled in an attempt to elude law enforcement officers.

As a result of the request, our agency received over 6,000 name submissions from our community – and even across the world.

After careful consideration of all of the names that were suggested, our team selected the names “Justice” and “Titan,” submitted by Darianne Nissen who works at Eastern Florida State College.

Darianne submitted the name Justice knowing that as a member of our K-9 Unit the Bloodhound will help bring criminals to justice, and selected the name Titan, which is the Mascot for Eastern Florida State College.

As is customary during our K-9 Swearing-In Ceremonies, we invited Darianne to pin the Deputies Badge on the collar of Justice and we were honored to have President Jim Richey of Eastern Florida State College pin the Deputies Badge on the collar of Titan.

I would like to personally thank the Jimmy Ryce Foundation for donating Titan and Justice to our agency, Darianne for submitting the names, Dr. Richey for taking part in the ceremony, and the thousands of citizens who submitted names to assist our agency in naming our newest members.
