Sheriff Scott Israel says he’s been suspended

According to the Miami Herald, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel has been placed on suspension and could potentially be fired. Israel reportedly told his department that Gov. Ron DeSantis, who was sworn in today, that he will be removed from office because of his mishandling of the Parkland shooting incident.

DeSantis hasn’t made an announcement and Israel’s lawyers told the Miami Herald that he’s still working.

However, BSO Union President Jeff Bell says “We know that he is telling everyone at the public safety building that he is going to be gone.”

This is a developing story.
