BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Earlier this afternoon, we said goodbye to longtime Brevard County Sheriff’s Office family member, Commander John Mellick who retires from our agency after 35 years of incredible service.
John has enjoyed an amazing career and leaves behind a tremendous legacy of professionalism and valued public service.
John was hired on May 12, 1986, by former Sheriff Jake Miller and during his 35 years with the agency was assigned to many different units and positions to include Commanding our East Precinct, Court Services and Operational Services.
Additionally, John has served as a Major/Watch Commander, Lieutenant, Sergeant, Corporal, Agent, FTO, Deputy and as a SWAT Team member.
Throughout his career John has always proven himself to be an outstanding asset to our agency and community having received hundreds of letters of Commendation, Unit Citations, Merit, Life Saving and Commendable Service Bars during his career for exceptional service.
