BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – This past Thursday, we wished a very happy retirement to longtime Brevard County Sheriff’s Office family member, Manager Joanne Homer.

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

Joanne was hired on October 5, 1980, by former Sheriff Rollin Zimmerman and was assigned as a Communications Officer.
