BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Please join me in congratulating our Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Motor Unit for their recognition in the 2015 Space Coast Motor Officers Police Motor Cycle Challenge.

This past Saturday our Motor Unit participated in the annual event where Motor Units from across the State of Florida and Eastern United States competed for both team and individual honors.

The event was sponsored by the Space Coast Motor Officers Association and graciously hosted by Space Coast Harley in Palm Bay.

This year’s competition included 57 participants from Florida, New Jersey, South Carolina and New York.

The event recognized several areas of motorcycle handling expertise and operation skills, but most importantly, was an opportunity for Motor Officers from around the country to train together and learn from each other along with distinguished experts in the field.

Motor Units are essential to effective traffic enforcement and patrol operations.
