EDITOR’S NOTE: In view of the largest mass shooting in the history of the United States of America that happened in Orlando in the early hours of Sunday morning, we thought it appropriate to republish our own Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey’s viral video that he produced last year in response to the San Bernardino shooting.
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Following Sunday morning’s “Active Shooter” incident in Orlando, I wanted to share with our community that our agency is actively monitoring the situation and evaluating all information that is received through the various Law Enforcement channels.
At this time we have NO information that there are any threats associated within our area of responsibility.
While we and the entire Public Safety Community remain vigilant following this horrific attack, we recommend that our citizens keep an “alert” status for anything that seems suspicious or out of the ordinary.
Remember, “if you see something, say something,” so that our team can evaluate and address any potential concerns.
Currently members of our agency and our State Attorney’s Office are offering assistance to the impacted Law Enforcement Agencies in various capacities.
We stand ready to assist them in any way we can as I know they would stand ready to assist our community in a time of need.
Our thoughts and prayers and the thoughts and prayers of our entire community are with the victim’s, their families, Orlando’s citizens and the many Public Safety members who are dealing with this tragic event.
