Even though he was working a full-time job in the corporate world, Ken felt it necessary to volunteer his time with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office. At the time he initially joined the Reserve Unit, the unit consisted of only a few deputies.
Ken has consistently elevated through the ranks of the Reserve Unit and in 2004 he was promoted to the position of commander over the unit. The unit had grown to almost 40 deputies when Ken took over command.
At that time, the unit was donating approximately 10,000 hours of law enforcement service each year to the citizens of Brevard County.
In 2012, after Sheriff Ivey took office, and under Ken’s guidance, the unit has grown to approximately 70 working deputies, who are contributing approximately 25,000 hours of law enforcement service each year to the citizens of Brevard County.
Over Ken’s many years of dedicated service, he has also held several certifications; to include FTO, airboat, riverboat and ATV operator.
His skills and talents have allowed him to serve in many of the specialized units within the Agency, such as the Ag/Marine Unit and the Mounted Posse. He has served the citizens of Brevard County with integrity and professionalism as shown by the numerous commendations and awards that he has received throughout his tenure.
For his more than 38 years of dedicated service and leadership to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Reserve Deputy Unit, it is our honor to recognize Commander Ken Willis as the 2020 Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Reserve Deputy of the Year.
