The Space Coast Council of the National Management Association has selected Sheriff’s Commander Doug Waller as their “Manager of the Year.” The prestigious annual honor is bestowed upon the top local manager in the business, industry, government or non-profit sectors.
In his twenty-five year service with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, Waller has risen to the upper echelons of command. He has gained a reputation for making innovative and creative techniques work within the framework of the modern law enforcement organization. Currently he leads sB.C.S.O’s Criminal Investigations Division.
Cdr. Waller was instrumental in putting together Brevard’s Sex Offender Registration Tracking Unit, (SORT). The elite crew began using cutting-edge techniques like internet stinging and rapid response, sex offender notifications to protect Brevard’s children from predators. The unit, now in its eighth year of operation, is considered a national model of efficiency and effectiveness.
” Driven is the best word I can use to describe him.” said Sheriff Jack Parker, “He has an absolute passion to get the worst of the worst out of our communities and get justice for victims. No one is more deserving of this prestigious award than Doug Waller.”
Commander Waller received his award June 6th, in Viera, at the Tradewinds Resaurant.
