BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – On December 13, members of our agency attended the First Baptist Church of Merritt Island where Pastor Titus Green and their wonderful congregation recognized the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office and Brevard County’s public safety members for their efforts to keep our community safe.

The show of support was truly overwhelming, as the congregation provided hundreds of thank you cards to give to our employees in appreciation for their role as peace keepers who protect the community.

Pastor Green and the incredible members of the congregation were very gracious as they praised the efforts of first responders and prayed for the health and wellbeing of each, their families and the victims of crime across our great nation during these challenging times.
