BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey recently presented the department’s “It’s Time To Be A Parent Again” class to over 150 people at Atlantis Elementary School in Port St. John.
This program talks to parents and gives them the tools and support resources to raise the next generation of children and ensure success.
Sheriff Ivey strongly believes that the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in a child’s life is not the Sheriff or Chief of Police, but instead is the mom, dad, grandparent, or foster parent that is raising the child.
As a young man growing up in North Florida, Sheriff Ivey never worried about being in trouble with law enforcement, he was more worried about being in trouble with his parents.

While today’s parents and children face challenges like never before, drugs, gangs, bullying and even social media have completely changed the ability of parents to keep watch and hold children accountable for their actions.
Today’s parenting is 24 hours a day and one of the most demanding jobs in the world, but it is also one of the most rewarding opportunities that life has to offer.
Sheriff Ivey is the parent of four and knows how hard it is to ‘Tough Love your child’.

As a veteran law enforcement for over 37 years, Sheriff Ivey knows that going to visit your child in prison is even harder, and going to see them in a cemetery is truly unimaginable.
Unfortunately, in today’s society, those may just be the only choices you have. That’s why it’s important for parents to have every tool possible to be their child’s personal cop.
Sheriff Ivey was grateful to Mrs. Adams and Mrs. Kraus from Atlantis Elementary for inviting him to speak, the parents for coming to this important presentation and everyone who made the evening possible.
