BREVARD COUNTY • SATELLITE BEACH, FLORIDA – Linda Harlow has been the administrative assistant to the chief of police in Satellite Beach for 32 years. She started her career serving under Chief Lionel Cote and has assisted Chief Jeff Pearson since 2011.

She is fiercely loyal. Fiercely determined. Fiercely effervescent. And, fiercely dedicated – not just in her responsibilities to keeping the administrative functions of the Police Department working seamlessly for three decades, but also to her commitment to making a difference in her community.

Well before the term “community policing” was coined, Harlow created volunteer programs at the Satellite Beach Police Department that have cultivated strong and unique relationships with our community.

And, she has been instrumental in aligning City resources to improve the quality of life for residents in Satellite Beach.

Harlow’s efforts are tireless, and her cause is singular. She just wanted to do her part to make Satellite Beach an amazing place to live, work and raise a family.

It never made a difference to Harlow how she contributed her time and talents to the City of Satellite Beach.

You could find her at the Rec Center for Teen Night, socializing with seniors in the “Stop By and Say Hi” program, or decorating a float for the Founder’s Day parade.

But, for the last 32 years, the Satellite Police Department has been the primary beneficiary of Harlow’s vision and generous heart.

And, last Friday, “Legendary Linda retired.”

Please join the Satellite Police Department wishing Linda a happy retirement. Although they all will miss her guiding light and daily hugs, her smile and service to others will remain her legacy.
