As the men and women of the Broward Sheriff’s Office continue to mourn the loss of Dep. Benjamin Nimtz and prepare to honor his life next week, the outpouring of prayers and expressions of concern have been greatly appreciated. So many of you have asked how else you can help. The Sheriff’s Foundation of Broward County has created the Deputy Benjamin Nimtz Memorial Fund. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to support the education of Dep. Nimtz’s children.

MEDIA NOTE: We appreciate your interest in covering the services of our fallen deputy; however, Dep. Nimtz’s family wishes to mourn his life out of the media spotlight. They are respectfully requesting media do not attend the viewing and memorial or gather on the properties of Fred Hunter’s funeral home or Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale. An unobtrusive media parking and staging area will be provided for the memorial Thursday, and Calvary Chapel will stream the service. Please email mediarelations@sheriff.org to obtain the link. Thank you in advance for honoring the family’s requests.
