But what he found wasn’t a domestic disturbance or someone blaring their TV too loud. He found a gym full of little dancers on Christmas Eve.
Instead of citing them for a disturbance and instead of kicking them out, he did something no one expected. He joined them! He started a dance-off! The deputy walked into the building relaxed and then initiated a dance-off. Despite wearing an officer’s belt, a bulletproof vest, and uniform, he showed off some pretty impressive moves the Pensacola Prancing Pirouettes were not expecting.
The gym full of teenage girls loved it and it made them feel special too! He even gets his wild moves right on the beat to the music! Who knew officers could be that agile and flexible? Shortly after the Pirouettes posted the video to their Facebook page, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office followed suit and shared the video saying, “Deputy Brissett has some moves!”
After seeing the video, we can all attest to his amazing dance skills. The Sheriff’s department has a unique relationship with the community. Rather than only enforce the law, they have come alongside the community to develop relationships and better connections. This video shows how “community” was emphasized where officers are encouraged to positively interact with the people in which they serve — dance battle and all. Deputy Brissett’s epic dance-off is just one of many examples. You can even see in the video, how the teens flock to the door when he arrives. It’s obvious, he is not only their protector but a friend. What an inspiring way to build up a community!
“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11
