The 4th Annual Valor Awards Banquet was held at the Crowne Plaza Melbourne Oceanfront hotel on Thursday evening, August 30, from 6-9PM.
Each year the Valor Awards honor local public safety personnel (Sheriff, Police, Fire and Rescue) in Brevard County for acts of extraordinary valor. Multiple awards were presented to personnel nominated by their respective Chiefs and Commanders for putting themselves in harm's way to protect the citizens of our community.
2012 Valor Awards were presented in three categories:
Medal of Valor ♦ Life Saving Award ♦ Medal of Merit
This year's event, dedicated to the memory of fallen Brevard County Sheriff's Deputy Barbara A. Pill (shown at left), drew a crowd of over 200 attendees that included friends and family of the honorees, municipal and county government officials, and the business community. It was a tremendous showing of support for these brave men and women who put their lives on the line to protect the citizens of Brevard County.
