Message from Sheriff Wayne Ivey
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Right before Christmas seems like the perfect time to share another great story about the compassion and kindness of our Brevard County Deputies who work so hard everyday to keep our community safe.
Recently, Deputy Joseph Batch and Deputy Kayte Herman of our East Precinct responded to a call from one of our residents who heard young children yelling for help in the nearby woods.
As it would turn out, the children had been outside playing and as it grew darker they got lost in the woods, became scared and could not find their way back home.
Deputies Batch and Herman were able to quickly locate the children, however they were on the other side of a canal.
The Deputies made a path through thick brush and water to rescue the children who were wet and frightened and glad to be safely returned home.
A few days later, Deputy Batch and Deputy Herman returned to the residence with flashlights and safety whistles for the children, to help keep them safe whenever they were outside playing and in case they ever got lost again.
You know folks, sometimes it’s the little things we do in the course of our jobs that make a difference in people’s lives.
Deputy Batch and Deputy Herman went out of their way to make a difference and I could not be more proud of them for the kindness and compassion they showed these children!!
They are true examples of what makes our agency one of the best Law Enforcement agencies in the country and I ask that you please join me in thanking them for going the extra mile!!
