DeSantis Ends Civilian Oversight of Police, Bolsters Law Enforcement

Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida has made a bold move to protect our law enforcement officers by signing a bill that puts an end to civilian review boards overseeing complaints against them. No longer will these non-law enforcement groups have the power to investigate our hardworking police officers when accusations are made against them. Instead, fellow law enforcement professionals will be entrusted with this responsibility, ensuring a fair and unbiased process.

DeSantis rightly sees these civilian review boards as a threat to public safety, labeling them as nothing more than a political weapon against our brave men and women in uniform. By putting an end to these extra judicial investigations, the governor is sending a clear message that he will not stand for baseless attacks on our law enforcement officers.

This new law will not only protect the integrity of our police force, but also provide peace of mind to our officers who have felt unfairly targeted in the past. With the deck no longer stacked against them, they can continue to serve and protect our communities with confidence and security.

In addition to this crucial legislation, Governor DeSantis has taken further steps to support our first responders by making it a crime to harass them at a crime scene. This is a common-sense measure that will help ensure the safety and effectiveness of those on the front lines of emergency situations.

Sheriff Robert Hardwick of St. John County praised DeSantis for setting the standard of being the most law enforcement-friendly state in the country. It’s no wonder that Florida faces significant vacancies in its law enforcement agencies, as the governor’s unwavering support for our officers has undoubtedly set the state apart as a beacon of law and order.

By standing up for our law enforcement officers and protecting them from unwarranted attacks, Governor DeSantis has once again demonstrated his commitment to ensuring the safety and security of all Floridians. His decisive actions will undoubtedly have a positive impact on the morale and effectiveness of our police force, making Florida a safer place for everyone.
