A Message from Sheriff Scott Israel


The last year has been a monumental year for me both professionally and personally. On November 4, 2008, the citizens of Broward County elected me to continue leading one of the finest public safety agency’s in the nation. During the last year we managed to restore public confidence in our agency and although I am proud of what we have accomplished, there is much more work to be done.

We are going to get back to the fundamentals of good, tough police work and getting criminals off the streets. We will implement new and modern law enforcement techniques in order to protect the public and to pursue, find and secure criminals. We will protect the most vulnerable in society – our children and the elderly. We will stay on the cutting edge of advanced life support technology in EMS and continue to provide more efficient regional services in fire rescue. We will continue to be open, honest and fiscally responsible to the public we serve.

The 6,000 professionals that make up the Broward Sheriff’s Office are good, decent people who care deeply about this community. They are here because they want to make life better for you – the citizens of Broward County. Never before has an organization been better prepared, better organized and more motivated to take on that challenge.

To the law enforcement and detention deputies, firefighters, paramedics and civilian personnel who serve so bravely with the Broward Sheriff’s Office, thank you for your service – I am honored and grateful to serve with you.

And to the people of Broward County who make this, our community, such a wonderful place to live, work, visit and raise a family, thank you for your trust, your prayers and for your everyday acts of kindness to the men and women who serve here in America’s finest public safety agency – I am proud to be your sheriff.
