more than 140,500 sandbags were filled and distributed to over 14,000 Brevard County residents
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Since Wednesday, both male and female Inmate Trustees from the Brevard County Jail filled and distributed sandbags at four different locations throughout Brevard County.
Because of their hard work to help protect our community, over 140,500 sandbags (7 million pounds of sand) were filled and distributed to over 14,000 Brevard residents.
I personally visited each location multiple times throughout the past four days and can honestly tell you that the work crews worked diligently to make sure that every citizen was protected as much as possible.
Since the Inmate Work Crews worked so hard to facilitate the project, our Command Team decided to show them just how much their efforts were appreciated by serving them a delicious dinner at the Brevard County Jail.
The inmates were served baked lasagna, green beans, garlic toast, and apple cobbler by our Command Team and several of our spouses in an an effort to say “Thank You” on behalf of our agency and our community.
As I always say, “it takes a community to protect a community” and they all worked very hard to help our citizens prepare. I can tell you first hand, they know they have made mistakes in the past, but they were very motivated to be part of a team to help their community and I am very proud of their efforts!!
