For their part, the sheriff’s union has issued no-confidence votes in Tony and Israel.Smalling, who has spent half that amount of time with the sheriff’s office, believes the department needs a morale boost, and he’s the one to do it.Others believe engaging the community is critical. Santiago Vasquez, who has served in capacities including deputy, detective and community relations officer with BSO, wants to set up a community awareness response team, as he told the TV station.Another of his opponents, Willie Jones, spent 15 years as sheriff, and shares the desire for a police task force.“President Obama’s police task force that talks about the best policing practices for the 21st century, if they had taken 60 percent of that, we could have eliminated a lot of the problems we are having with our communities,” Jones stated to WFOR.Candidates for the sheriff’s position in the Republican primary include H. Wayne Clark and Casimiro Navarro.Tuesday’s winner will go up against the Republican candidate in November’s election. That includes a 1993 incident in which the now-sheriff shot and killed a man as a teenager in Philadelphia. Tony has maintained the shooting was in self-defense, and he was ultimately cleared of wrongdoing.He recently told The Sentinel, “The political nature is to be nasty and slanderous, but this is a public safety organization and we need to focus on presenting the facts and what we have accomplished from our real-time crime center to our training center and even giving the best raise in 25 years and what we are doing about police accountability when it comes to all the reform efforts we took on last year.”Additionally, the current sheriff has been criticized for not revealing on his Coral Springs job application that he tried LSD in his youth.“His whole campaign has been deceitful and misleading, and that’s who he is,” Israel said of Tony.In fighting back, Tony’s campaign mirrors DeSantis’ thoughts on Israel’s failures with the mass shootings.On the other hand, the sheriff’s union is throwing its support behind the retired Pollock, who spent 40 years with BSO as a detective, watch commander and colonel.“I know the inner workings of this agency. I know what it takes to get the men and women going in the right direction,” he told Miami television station WFOR.Primary Election Day is AUGUST 18.

Ron DeSantis seeks election, the man he replaced, Scott Israel, is trying to get his job back.Four other veterans are vying for the position as well.That includes Al Pollock, as well as Andrew Smalling, Santiago Vasquez, and Willie Jones. However, Israel believes he’s got it in the can.“With no disrespect to anyone it’s a two-person race,” he recently told reporters with The South Florida Sun Sentinel.DeSantis removed Israel as sheriff two years ago, alleging that he had mishandled the Parkland and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport shootings in 2018 and 2017, respectively.Meanwhile, Tony, who had been a Coral Springs police sergeant, has faced scrutiny in recent months, as issues from his professional and personal past have come to light.There are only five days until Election Day!

Pollock was working off-duty for the team at the time.
