BREVARD COUNTY – On March 15, 2015 Corrections Deputy Jessica Bradford was working in the female facility when the releasing officers called for four female inmates to be brought to releasing.

As Corrections Deputy Bradford was verifying that the inmates on the releasing list were indeed the inmates to be released, she noticed that one of the inmates lined up was not one of the inmates on the releasing list.

Deputy Bradford immediately challenged the identity of the inmate at which time the inmate claimed that she was one of those slated to be released.

Deputy Bradford then determined that the inmate was wearing the actual armband and glasses of the inmate that had been called for release in hopes that Corrections Deputy Bradford would not realize that she was not the inmate that was to be released.

Deputy Bradford quickly determined that the female inmate was attempting to use the other inmates identity to be released from the Correctional Facility and took the appropriate action to stop the wrongful release.

Because of her attention to detail and awareness Corrections Deputy Bradford was able to prevent an inmate from impersonating another inmate in order to escape from custody.

Please join me in congratulating Corrections Deputy Bradford for being named Corrections Deputy of the Month and also in thanking her for a job well done
