ENOUGH IS ENOUGH: IT’S TIME TO SAY WHAT NEEDS TO BE SAID TO PROTECT OUR CITIZENS!
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – One of the many great things about being Sheriff is that you are expected to do and say what needs to be said and done to protect your citizens and community.
I want to start by saying that our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and families of the recent San Bernardino terrorist attack as well as the Law Enforcement Officers and other first responders that faced the horrific carnage in their own community.
The purpose of this video message is to tell our citizens that if a terrorist attack or active shooter scenario can happen in California, Texas, South Carolina, or Paris it can happen right here in our own back yard.
