Sheriff Wayne Ivey Recognizes Brevard Employees During National Correctional Officer Week

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – This week, May 7-13, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office and others across the nation will take time to recognize the incredible employees working in Correctional facilities across our nation in honor of National Correctional Officers and Employees Week.
In 1984, President Ronald Reagan created National Correctional Officers Week to recognize these dedicated professionals who put their lives on the line every day while routinely performing difficult and dangerous tasks in order to protect the public from violent offenders.
As Sheriff, I want to take this opportunity to share with our community just how much we appreciate all of the amazing members of our Corrections Team for their dedication, commitment and professionalism.
The personal sacrifice and commitment that they make each and every day working as Corrections professionals is second to none and we could not be more proud of them.
Corrections is one of the most stressful and dangerous roles in the Public Safety industry, as they persistently deal with the worst of the worst.
ABOVE LIVESTREAM: Most courts in Brevard County are fully accessible to citizens. The courtroom located inside the Brevard County Jail limits public access due to security concerns. To overcome these limitations, the Sheriff’s Office has implemented the above video streaming capability so the public can watch the proceedings at the jail live.
Their position is essential to the protection of our community as they work around the clock ensuring the custody, safety and wellbeing of those who refuse to live by society’s laws and rules.
Our Corrections Deputies and Correctional Employees do an amazing job every day as they handle some of the most dangerous criminals in our community while working to protect our citizens, often without receiving the recognition they truly deserve.
Please join me this week and each week after in thanking all of our Corrections Deputies and Correctional Employees for their hard work and dedication.
– Sheriff Wayne Ivey
