BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – We wished a very happy retirement last week to longtime Brevard County Sheriff’s Office family member Chief Paul “PD” Drinkwater. He has enjoyed an incredible career with our agency and leaves behind a legacy of professionalism and valued public service.
Paul was hired on July 29, 1983, by former Sheriff Jake Miller and was assigned as a Deputy in Central Precinct. During his 34 years with the agency, he was assigned to several different units and positions to include Deputy, Agent, Sergeant, Lieutenant, Commander and Chief.
As an Agent, Paul was assigned to the Special Investigations Unit where he focused his efforts on narcotic criminal organizations. During the majority of his career, he has been assigned as a supervisor where he has proven himself to be an outstanding asset. Paul has received hundreds of letters of Commendation during his career for exceptional service.
Paul is fondly known for his infectious smile and laugh and will be dearly missed!
Please join me in congratulating Paul for his incredible efforts and commitment to our agency and citizens and also in wishing him a very relaxing, fun and well-deserved retirement.
We wish him the absolute best in the next chapter of his life and greatly appreciate his dedication!
