PBPD: Brevard County Fraternal of Police does not speak for the City of Palm Bay
BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – The Palm Bay Police Department issued a statement Monday about a Facebook post by the Brevard County Fraternal Order of Police calling for law enforcement officers from Minneapolis, Atlanta and Buffalo to relocate to Brevard County to seek employment with local law enforcement agencies in Brevard County.
“The Brevard County Fraternal Order of Police page does not speak for the City of Palm Bay, the Palm Bay Police Department, or our staff members,” said Palm Bay police officials.
“The Palm Bay Police Department would like to assure the public that it is not affiliated with the Brevard County Fraternal of Police, nor do we condone the opinions expressed in the posts.”
Police Chief Nelson Moya has led the City of Palm Bay in publicly addressing issues of police brutality and misconduct.
Last week, Moya and representatives from the Palm Bay Police Department attended several peaceful demonstrations “to show their support, listen to the community, and continue this important conversation.”
“The Palm Bay Police Department stands in solidarity with their community and remains committed to positive, proactive community policing by officers who conduct themselves with honor and integrity,” said Palm Bay police officials.
