BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – This past week we were blessed with the incredible generosity of a Brevard County citizen who donated $3,000 dollars in $25 gift cards to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.

The citizen who wished to remain anonymous is a very proud and avid supporter of our agency and wanted to partner with us to help in our Holiday Season Crime Prevention efforts.

Through discussion with members of our agency and with the support of the gracious donor, it was decided to provide the gift cards to citizens who were observed practicing Crime Prevention and Safety tips that our agency has promoted through our various Crime Prevention measures such as Facebook, community presentations, and through our website.

Our team was extremely impressed with the incredible number of our citizens that followed our Crime Prevention suggestions and also shared with us that they follow our Crime Prevention efforts on Facebook.

During the giveaway operation, 120 citizens were recognized and rewarded for their safety efforts. We are very proud of the wonderful support our agency receives from our citizens and this was an opportunity for us to recognize a few of our public partners for practicing safe habits to prevent crime.

Please join me in thanking the very generous citizen who wishes to remain anonymous for this incredible support of our agency and community.

I would also like to recognize Agent Bob Wagner for coming up with the idea to reward our citizens for following our Crime Prevention tips and all of our Deputies who were part of the team that participated in the detail. And of course as always I want to thank our citizens who work as partners with us everyday to help keep Brevard County a great place to call home.
