BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Last week our agency wished a very happy retirement to longtime Brevard County Sheriff’s Office family member Commander Darrell Hibbs. Darrell has enjoyed an outstanding career with our agency and leaves behind a legacy of professionalism, valued public service and friendship.
Darrell was originally hired as a Corrections Deputy by then Sheriff Jake Miller on July 29, 1987, and assigned to the Brevard County Jail.
Since that time, Darrell has served as a Corrections Sergeant, Lieutenant, Major, and most recently as the Commander of our Corrections Team.
Darrell is a Graduate of the Southern Police Institute 36th Command Officers Development Course and is an American Correctional Association Certified Corrections Executive and Florida Sheriff’s Association Certified Jail Inspector.
In addition, Darrell was also appointed by the Governor of Florida as a Commissioner to the Florida Corrections Accreditation Commission.
Throughout his career Darrell has always proven himself to be an outstanding asset to our agency and has served his community proudly.
He has received hundreds of Letters of Commendations, Unit Citations, Merit and Commendable Service Bars during his exemplary career and dedicated service. Through Darrell’s professionalism, mentorship, and leadership, many of our young Corrections Deputies and staff have developed and grown to become the future of our agency.
On a personal note, Darrell has been an incredible friend to me and my family and is one of those people who is always willing to give you the shirt off his back to help you with whatever you may need.
He will be truly missed by me and our entire agency and I could not be happier for him on this amazing milestone in his life.
Please join me in congratulating Darrell for his incredible efforts and commitment to our agency and the citizens of Brevard County and also in wishing him an enjoyable, fun filled and well-deserved retirement.
We wish Darrell the absolute best in the next chapter of his life and truly appreciate his service, dedication and commitment.
Congrats my friend on a job well done and we will take it from here.
