PUBLIC SERVICE SPOTLIGHT
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard County Sheriff’s Commander Victor DeSantis retired after 37 years of dedicated service.
Today, we wish a very happy retirement to longtime Brevard County Sheriff’s Office family member Commander Vic DeSantis. Vic has enjoyed an incredible career with our agency, after proudly serving 7 years in the United States Air Force, and leaves behind a legacy of professionalism and valued public service that is second to none.
Vic is truly a friend to all, and a great leader, who will be deeply missed by me, our entire agency, and the community.
Vic joined the Sheriff’s Office on March 29, 1993, under Sheriff Jake Miller, and has proudly served our agency and community with over 30 years of distinguished service.
During his career, Vic served in various capacities from Agent in General Crimes and Major Crimes, to Sergeant and Lieutenant at multiple precincts and our Criminal Investigations Division. His most recent assignments included Commander of our South Precinct and he retires from the distinguished position as Commander at our Criminal Investigative Services.
Additionally, Vic was a member of our SWAT Team for several years, has received multiple Unit Citations and Commendations, specifically for shutting down meth labs, and was the 1998 Deputy of the Year.
Vic graduated from the FBI LEEDA 27th Commander Institute for Law Enforcement Executives and was named Dean’s Scholar of the Southern Police Institute 111th Administrative Officers Course.
Vic will always be remembered for his commitment to this agency and of course his love for the Boston Red Sox. I didn’t say he was perfect, just a great guy.
I know I speak for all of us when I say that we wish Vic the absolute best in the next chapter of his life and greatly appreciate his service and dedication to our community.
Please join me in congratulating Vic for his incredible efforts and the mark he leaves on our citizens and this agency. Congrats my friend, enjoy your retirement.
