BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA — I had the honor this week of presenting Retirement Credentials to Sergeant Mark Stamates of our North Precinct.
Sgt. Stamates is retiring from our agency after serving our country and community for almost 21 years.
His incredible service to our citizens began as a member of our Armed Services where he served in the United States Navy for 10 years.
Sgt. Stamates then joined our Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Team where he has proudly served for 11 years.
An incredible leader who is beloved and deeply respected by his squad members and all who worked alongside him, Mark will be greatly missed by our agency.
I ask that you please join me in wishing both he and his family well in the next chapter of their lives.
