defending rights of victims TOP PRIORITY
BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA – Our partnership with law enforcement in combating crime and defending the rights of victims is something I am very proud of.
I was honored to have been invited to instruct a group of Brevard County Deputies on recent changes to Florida Statutes and rulings by the courts.
The open exchange provided a great opportunity for us to strengthen that partnership and develop effective enforcement and prosecution strategies going forward.
If you’d like more information on these opportunities you can visit our website at SA18.org or contact Special Projects Coordinator Debbi Davis at 321-617-7347.
