2015 Officer of the Year:  Officer Dee Meisner, Community Resource Unit


Officer Dee Meiser has been with the Cocoa Police Department since 2004. She has served in many capacities including patrol, training and community policing. In 2015, Officer Meisner assumed the duties of community outreach officer and successfully organized several community events. Among the most noteworthy was the annual Christmas Toy Drive and the Shop with a Cop event. Officer Meisner worked day and night to get the toy drive completed, and was challenged due to the fact that normal resources from years past were no longer available. With limited resources and new

challenges not faced in previous years, Officer Meisner worked tirelessly to make things happen. Her efforts and her leadership provided Christmas Officer Dee Meisner gifts to more than 400 children and their families.

 Officer Meisner also works with the city’s Neighborhood Watch groups, schools, civic organizations and churches to provide crime prevention awareness and education along with community outreach. She mentors children, and is always available to help those in need. For these reasons and many more, Officer Dee Meisner is the Cocoa Police Department’s Officer of the Year for 2015
