By Melbourne Police Dept. // June 8, 2020
We do not agree or condone the messages that Brevard F.O.P. has sent out
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Brevard F.O.P. does not represent the Melbourne Police Department or speak on its behalf.
We are aware of the posts that have been made on its Facebook page inviting officers from Minneapolis, Buffalo and Atlanta to seek employment as law enforcement officers in Florida.
We have been made aware that their page includes an image of a Melbourne Police vehicle, which we have requested they remove.
Our agency works very hard to hire quality people who we believe will be good representatives of high moral character.
It is what we expect of our officers and what the community expects.
We do not agree or condone the messages that Brevard F.O.P. has put on its Facebook page and do not support such inflammatory remarks. We are grateful to our community members who have spoken out and peacefully demonstrated in recent days against racial injustice and police brutality.
We are committed to working together with our community for the betterment of all.
Melbourne is a special place, and we are blessed to have caring and thoughtful residents and community leaders to work with.
We remain committed to continued discussions with our local community in the days, weeks and months to come.
– Melbourne Police Department
