BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Earlier this week, I had the distinct honor of recognizing and congratulating Agent Dan Ogden who is unfortunately leaving our agency to take on a brand new role with the United States Department of Justice.

Dan has been an incredible member of our agency for the past 15 years and has been instrumental in the development of multiple programs and initiatives.

Dan was a critical part of our Internet Crimes Against Children Investigative team, who spearhead our efforts in the investigation of child exploitation.

Dan has been recognized in the field as an expert and has received multiple awards to include Law Enforcement Officer of the Year for the Middle District of Florida; Child Abuse Prevention Task Force Law Enforcement Officer of the Year; and the Juny Rios Martinez Award just to name a few.

Most recently, Agent Ogden initiated and directed the efforts with our state legislatures to create a bill to address those who harass and torment victims through through social media and web sites using personal images.

After a two year effort to get this law, Agent Ogden was successful in reaching this goal and the Revenge Porn Law will take effect on October 1.

Agent Ogden has made many great contributions to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office and the citizens of Florida. He will be truly missed and we wish him continued success with his new endeavors.
