City of Fernandina Beach

Yesterday, the FBPD celebrated Reserve Officer Steve Filkoff’s 10th anniversary with the Police Department as well as his last day as a reserve officer. Steve’s service as a Reserve Officer started in 2010 when at age 59 when he graduated from the police academy. Attending the police academy after retirement from the corporate world was quite the feat given the academic and physical demands.
Steve’s devotion to fulfilling his desire to become a fully certified police officer was well respected and he worked hard serving the Fernandina Beach community by giving his full attention to the Downtown area and coordinating hundreds of special events.
While Steve will be hanging up his gun and badge, he will continue to serve by coordinating the Police Auxiliary Corps and as a member of the Police Foundation. Steve is shown here with his wife Arlene and holding his 10 year service plaque.
