By Wayne Ivey, Brevard Sheriff // March 22, 2018
BCSO annual Awards Ceremony April 13 at Church of Viera
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – As the Sheriff’s Office annual Awards Ceremony quickly approaches on Friday, April 13, at the Church of Viera, I would like to lead up to the event by sharing with you some of the incredible accomplishments of your Brevard County Sheriff’s Office employees who will be recognized that evening during the event.
Our next employees to be recognized are Field Training Officers Alicia Miller and Deputy Christopher Maloy of our East Precinct.
In April 2017, FTO Alicia Miller and Deputy Christopher Maloy responded to a suspicious incident concerning a man wearing a ripped shirt and covered in blood attempting to flag down a motorist.
Upon arriving on scene, FTO Miller and Deputy Maloy located the man who was now unconscious lying on his stomach under some bushes and bleeding profusely from two apparently self-inflicted deep lacerations to both wrists.
Without hesitation, FTO Miller and Deputy Maloy applied direct pressure to the victim’s wounds while elevating his arms above his head to stop the blood loss.
The man subsequently regained consciousness and became combative.
The deputies were able to restrain the man until Brevard County Fire Rescue could arrive and begin providing medical attention.
FTO Miller then accompanied the paramedics inside the ambulance while the male was transported to a local hospital for treatment and evaluation due to his combative nature.
Upon arrival at the hospital, the victim’s blood pressure was critically low and he required a blood transfusion due to the amount of blood loss. The attending emergency room doctor attributed the life saving measures of FTO Miller and Deputy Maloy with saving the man’s life.
If it were not for the actions of FTO Miller and Deputy Maloy, the victim would not have received the immediate lifesaving treatment needed and quite possibly, would not have survived the incident.
The deputies additionally obtained the information needed to identify and arrest the suspect.
Please join me in congratulating everyone involved in this incident, with a special recognition to Deputy Christopher Maloy and FTO Alicia Miller for their life saving efforts and commitment to protecting our citizens!! Both Alicia and Christopher will be recognized at our upcoming award ceremony.
Great job Alicia and Christopher!
– Sheriff Wayne Ivey
