ABOVE VIDEO: The Brevard Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce that Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Corrections Deputy Patrick Arquette was recognized by the Florida Sheriff’s Association earlier this week as the Corrections Officer of the Year for the State of Florida. Deputy Arquette serves as a valuable member of our Corrections K-9 Unit and earned the honor following two amazing rescues last year with his K-9 Bloodhound Earle.
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Corrections Deputy Patrick Arquette was honored by the Florida Sheriff’s Association as Corrections Officer of the Year in a ceremony held last night.
Deputy Arquette serves as a valuable member of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Corrections K-9 Unit, and earned the statewide honor following two amazing rescues last year with his K-9 Bloodhound Earle.
He was recognized for a March 2014 call where he was called to assist the Rockledge Police Department in the search of a missing and endangered 84-year-old.
Deputy Arquette responded to aid in the search and deployed his partner, K9 Earl. The duo searched the area and found the missing person in the pool with a serious wound.
“The victim is alive today because of the quick work by the bloodhound team,” said Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey.
“Had Deputy Arquette and his partner Earl not rescued the individual, he would not have survived due to the critical injury.”
Deputy Arquette was then called upon again the very same day as he and Earl were summoned to help find an 11-year-old girl reported missing.
The duo deployed, and although the juvenile had over a 2 hour head start, Earl was able to track directly to the child. Again, the quick efforts of Deputy Arquette and Earl resulted in the child’s safe return to her family.
In addition, Deputy Arquette and his K9 partners have helped track and apprehend a number of violent felons throughout the year.
“Deputy Arquette serves as a member of our Corrections K-9 Unit and earned the honor of Corrections Deputy of the Year following two amazing rescues last year using his K-9 Bloodhound Earle,” said Sheriff Ivey
The above video captures the true essence of Patrick’s work ethic and commitment to our citizens, and I could not be more proud of him. His actions without question saved the life of a fellow human being and he is truly deserving of this incredible award. Please join me in congratulating Patrick for his incredible effort and accomplishments.”
