BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – In an effort to better accommodate our citizens’ needs, the North Merritt Island location is being changed to Mitchell Ellington Park located at 575 Hall Road, Merritt Island.

Due to the incredible response for preparedness by our citizens preparing for the impact
of Hurricane Matthew, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office was able to provide our citizens today with well over 10,000 sandbags.

We apologize for the delays, and ask for patience with this process, as our inmate work crews and staffing are working around the clock to fill and load the bags requested.

To help keep up with the incredible demand, our Inmate work crews and crew supervisors will be working throughout the night to help pre-stage filled bags, however, there may still be delays tomorrow.
