Broward County sheriff Scott Israel to be replaced following criminal investigation: Report

Sheriff Scott Israel may be leaving the department as early as next week, according to "sources"


(INTELLIHUB) — One news outlet suggests Florida’s Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is going to be replaced as early as next week following a criminal investigation authorized by Florida Governor Rick Scott.

From Big League Politics:

[…] Sheriff Israel is being removed from office for criminal issues, not malfeasance, following an investigation conducted by the office of Florida Governor Rick Scott.





The high-level police source within the Sheriff’s Office disclosed that over the last several months, four candidates have been interviewed to refill the position of Broward County Sheriff. One of the candidates who were interviewed is Emery Giany, a Republican Florida law enforcement official who is closely associated with Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.

Additionally, the publication reported that this will all occur next week.
