BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Earlier this week we wished a very happy retirement to a longtime Brevard County Sheriff’s Office family member, Manager Mike Wimberly.

Mike has had an incredible career with our agency and leaves behind a legacy of professionalism and valued public service.

Wimberly was hired as Fleet Maintenance Manager in January 1997, after 16 years of working and supervising Brevard County’s Fleet.

During his 20 years with the BCSO, Mike has managed the fleet operations for nearly 1500 employees.

In 2000, Mike attended and graduated from the nighttime Eastern Florida State Law Enforcement Academy and obtained his law enforcement certification. Mike has since volunteered thousands of hours as a Reserve Deputy over and beyond his daily Fleet Management responsibilities.

Mike’s son Andrew proudly presented his father’s retirement credentials at his retirement ceremony as Andrew is following in his father’s public service footsteps.

Andrew was hired by our agency in 2011 and currently serves as a Corrections Deputy.

Throughout his career, Mike has received a tremendous amount of accolades and letters of commendation from both within and outside of our agency. He is not only a great Manager and Law Enforcement Officer, but is a great friend to all as well!
