Sergeant Marc Rosenfeld
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – One of the many great things about being Sheriff of Brevard County is that I often get to share the incredible professional accomplishments of the 1,500 proud men and women of our agency as they work hard every day to protect our community.
While our stories most often focus on the actions and accomplishments of our team members while on duty, tonight I get to share with you an incredible accomplishment for Sergeant Marc Rosenfeld who was recently inducted into the New Jersey Shore Conference Wrestling Hall of Fame.
Marc attended Brick Memorial High School in New Jersey, graduating in 2002. While wrestling on the team Marc was a 4 time District Wrestling Champion and a 3 time Regional Wrestling Champion.
In addition, Marc was a 2 time State Place Winner and concluded his high school wrestling career with an over-all record of 128 wins and 16 losses.
After High School Marc wrestled at Rutgers University on a full ride scholarship where he started on varsity in the 125 lb. weight class his Freshman Year. While wrestling in college, Marc sustained a career ending injury and then later moved to Brevard County where he eventually gained employment with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.
Marc currently serves our agency and community as a Sergeant in our West Precinct in the Patrol Division working in our Field Training Unit.
Marc was just recently inducted into the Wrestling Hall of Fame and shared this amazing accomplishment with me a few days ago.
He is a solid leader for our agency and credits the sport of wrestling with helping him develop the dedication and commitment he calls upon everyday while serving as a Law Enforcement Officer.
Please join me in congratulating Marc on being inducted into the Hall of Fame and in thanking him for his service to our community.
