Brevard County Sheriff's Office Wishes Happy Retirement to Three 'Amazing' Members
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – This past week our agency wished a very happy retirement to Lt. Dennis Casey, Sgt. Michael Van Slyke and Sgt. Craig Salie who collectively retired with approximately 85 years of service to our agency, community and citizens.
Lt. Dennis Casey was hired as a Deputy Sheriff by then-Sheriff Jake Miller in 1989 and assigned to Central Precinct.
During his tenure with the Sheriff’s Office Dennis has held several key positions to include, Field Training Officer and Corporal at East Precinct, Acting Sergeant at North Precinct, Sergeant at East Precinct, Sergeant at CID with our Game Over Task Force and Ag Marine Sergeant.
Dennis also served as a member of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team for 15 years. Dennis is a friend to everyone who meets him and will be truly missed as he moves on to his next adventure.
Sergeant Michael Van Slyke was hired by Sheriff Jake Miller in 1987, and throughout his career has served as an exceptional member of our Corrections Team as a Corrections Deputy, Corrections Field Training Officer, and Corporal. Sergeant Van Slyke is beloved by his peers and throughout his career was recognized as the person who would always get things done.
Sergeant Craig Salie was hired by Sheriff Phil Williams in 1998, as a Corrections Auxiliary Officer assigned to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Jail. Craig was promoted to Corrections Deputy in 2000, then selected for Corporal in 2011.
Prior to joining the Sheriff’s Office, Craig was a member of the United States Army from 1981-1996. Craig was a well-respected member of our team and it will be hard to fill his shoes as a member of our Corrections Team.
Please join me in congratulating Dennis, Michael, and Craig for their incredible commitment, dedication, and passion to our agency, profession, and citizens.
While we truly hate to see them leave our team, we all wish them the very best in the next chapter of their lives.
– Sheriff Wayne Ivey
