BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA – Corporal Jacki George, a 15-year law enforcement veteran, has been honored as the Cocoa Beach Police Department’s 2018 Officer of the Year.
According to Cocoa Beach Police Chief Scott Rosenfeld, George exemplifies dedication to the profession, the department and the community she serves.
George’s primary responsibility is line-level patrol supervision but she is charged with many other ancillary duties including traffic homicide investigations, field training, instructing personnel in Taser and vehicle operations, crime prevention and community relations.
“Her ability to independently handle these duties with efficiency, while maintaining such a positive attitude, made this year’s Officer of the Year selection an easy one,” said a statement issued by the Cocoa Beach Police Department.
George was promoted to her current rank in March of 2018 and is assigned to oversee the busy afternoon/evening patrol shift.
Corporal George has become an integral part of the Department’s day-to-day operations.
She routinely conducts department-wide high liability instruction; trains new officers, beach rangers, and parking enforcement specialists in the operation of utility and all-terrain vehicles; fills shift shortages in the capacity of a supervisor and as a zone officer, many times sacrificing her days off; and volunteers for special details and events; and anything else asked of her—without complaint.
Always looking for more responsibility, she volunteered to plan and coordinate the annual “Night Out” event.
Other 2018 events or programs that Corporal George coordinated or participated in were the First Responder Expo in the Melbourne Square Mall, the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics, the Sheriff’s Reverse Christmas Parade and the annual Citizen’s Academy.
