BREVARD COUNTY • PORT ST. JOHN, FLORIDA – As Sheriff of Brevard County, I could not be more proud of our community for everything they are doing to support Agent Casey Smith, his family and our agency since Casey was shot in the line of duty this past week.

I have always told people that as Law Enforcement Officers we are blessed to live and work in Brevard County where our citizens have partnered with us to not only combat crime but to keep Brevard County the incredible place it is to call home.

Since Casey was shot, our community, business leaders, and Public Safety Partners have showered Casey with their love, their hope, donations of blood, financial support and most importantly their prayers.

To me this puts the exclamation point on the words “we are blessed to live and work in Brevard County where our citizens have partnered with us!!”

The below photo is of a group of kids in Port St. John that this past weekend started a Lemonade Stand to raise money to help Agent Casey Smith. Earlier this afternoon Deputy Andrew Johnson stopped by to sample the Lemonade and to personally thank the young entrepreneurs for their compassion to help our BCSO family member.

I am proud to tell you that I stopped by a little later myself and received their donation of $320 that will go to Casey’s family through our Brevard County Public Safety Charity that is designed to help our first responders in a time of need. And yes in case your wondering, I did get an order of Lemonade myself and it was well worth the money!

If you would like to donate to help Casey and his family please go to our website, Brevardsheriff.com and click on the link for the Brevard County Public Safety Charity.
