Brevard County Sheriff's Office To Oversee School Security

VIERA, Florida -- During the Brevard Public Schools Board meeting on Tuesday, Board members unanimously approved a partnership where a Sheriff's Office Lieutenant will now oversee District Security.


The new partnership reduces operational costs for both Brevard Public Schools and the BCSO through the elimination of the Director of District Security position, which will be replaced by BCSO Lieutenant Mike Scully.  Lt. Scully's position will be funded by both Brevard Public Schools and the Sheriff's Office.  According to BCSO, Lt. Scully is a 30-year law enforcement veteran with exceptional skills in law enforcement administration, patrol, site security, and crime prevention.  


Over the course of the last several months, Sheriff Wayne Ivey had worked closely with Brevard Public Schools Superintendent Brian T. Binggeli and his staff to create a new "School Security" concept. 


“This is an exceptional opportunity to partner more closely with the BCSO and our law enforcement community to enhance the safety for our students,” Binggeli said. "[District & School Safety Director Andrea] Alford has provided dedicated service to the students of Brevard County and we thank her for the years of support to this department.”


The initiative will immediately work to enhance communication and coordination between Brevard Public Schools and all law enforcement agencies. According to BCSO, the partnership was designed with the complete and unanimous support of the Brevard County Chiefs of Police and their respective agencies. 



"I would like to personally commend the leadership of the Superintendent and our School Board Members for their commitment to the safety of our children, teachers, administrators and employees. This program is an excellent example of partnerships, working together to protect our community," Ivey said.

Amazing there was actually a District of School Security position ??
Unreal, I thought Lt. Scully was already on the public dole?? He's going to get more $$$ for doing what is suppose to be HIS JOB.
Oh yeah I really believe that this will save the taxpayer $$. So now sheriff's cars will be at the schools chit-chattin and on cell phones instead of their local meeting places.

Funny how you comment about an issue, when you are not even aware that there was a district security position to begin with. Our teachers, students and schools deserve to have a office of Security that serves the needs of our district with integrity and that has been lacking for many years, with numerous complaints on the current head of that department.

Why is that funny?? I should be like you someone who is says Now about how this so-called position was lacking for many years needs to be taken over. Do you have evidence of all these complaints.
Aren't the police suppose to serve the needs of EVERYBODY in the district to begin with?? Isn't that their job??
The job should be done away with along with the clerk job associated with it and the police should be doing this normally as part their job
And save the taxpayers some money. Oh no wait let's pay a Lt. Scully more for doing what he was already hired to do.

You don't know what you are talking about. There is presently a chief of security that frankly is weak at best. Mike Skully is one of the finest men and finest officers I have ever known and I've known many over the years. If I were the sheriff and it were my choice Mike Scully would be mt number one choice.

As to your claim of Sheriff cars hanging around I'm betting the survivors of 26 families would Like to have had mike or one of his deputies "hanging out"

There is another school system where EVERY school has a cubicle for an officer to do his paperwork, a computer, etc. Even a coffee maker and a mini fridge, so they "hang out" at school rather than the doughnut shop .

Mike will be an excellent officer bringing a lot of experience.

Why not publish the terms and condition of the agreement and let the public decide if it saves the tax payer money

Hey buddy..... Check your tin foil helmet, I think it's coming loose. We don't want the government sending in the bad transmissions to your brain, lol.

You haven't proved me wrong. Disregard this Gov't./Coporate media lackey. Do your own research.Research the children's names at Social Security master death index list. You will be shocked at the truth. While your at it research obama's social security number.

I think you, who hates this, needs to look at how our county has been cleaned up in the clerk's office.

Needleman was using the clerk position to his own gain, not for our gain.

Scully will do a good job and they picked a good person. I'd rather have an Lt. doing this then some young buck
