Tallahassee, FL – The Florida Senate unanimously passed legislation on Thursday that was designed by the governor to help Florida law enforcement agencies recruit officers from out-of-state, along with an amendment to the bill that will give sheriffs more control over their budgets.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis proposed his plan in October of 2021 to offer $5,000 signing bonuses to police officers from other states who wanted to relocate to Florida.
Law enforcement agencies nationwide were reporting a shortage of officers even before the global pandemic and the nationwide riots that followed the death of George Floyd in the custody of the Minneapolis police, WJXT reported.
