By Wayne Ivey, Brevard Sheriff // July 28, 2016
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – I am pleased to announce another innovative Crime Prevention initiative by the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office in an effort to bring Crime Prevention awareness to our citizens.
Earlier this week, our agency partnered with Southeast Petro Distributors to place Crime Prevention reminders at gas pumps throughout Brevard County to remind our citizens while the refuel their vehicles about the various and simple things they can do to help us keep them from becoming crime’s next victim.
The Crime Prevention stickers that display Crime Prevention reminders about locking doors, not leaving pets or kids in vehicles, and so forth are being placed on over 400 gas pumps throughout Brevard County thanks to Southeast Petro Distributors who wanted to be proactive in reminding our citizens that it takes a community to protect a community.
Please join me in thanking the team at Southeast Petro Distributors and their owners, the Shah Family for partnering with us to reach our citizens with vital Crime Prevention information so we can all work together to keep Brevard County a safe place to call home!
