By Wayne Ivey, Brevard County Sheriff // January 31, 2014
Roberts distinguished himself in the military
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — I would like to thank our Brevard County Board of Commissioners for honoring one of our Sheriff’s Office members yesterday by presenting a resolution for dedicated service to our agency and country.
The Commissioners presented a County Resolution to Agent Kevin Roberts, who is returning to our agency after having faithfully served his country. As an Army Sergeant in active military duty, Kevin distinguished himself, representing his family, agency and country.
Additionally, members of the United States Army recognized the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office as a Patriotic Employer for our outstanding assistance to agency members who serve in our nation’s Armed Forces. These proud employees not only protect our community, but also respond to the call of duty by protecting our country in time of conflict.
I could not be more proud of Agent Roberts for his incredible service to our country, and we are both proud and relieved to have him home safely, once again protecting our streets.
