Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis spoke to the Florida Sheriff’s Association at their winter conference earlier today. During DeSantis’ speech, he presented the 4,000th bonus award from the Law Enforcement Recruitment Bonus Program. The initiative encourages Floridians to join the profession and attracts out-of-state recruits or experienced officers to relocate to Florida

“I am proud to award the 4,000th bonus check to newly recruited officers who have chosen to bring their talents to Florida,”

“As the Biden Border Crisis rages on and fentanyl continues to flow over our southern border, it is more important now than ever to support our law enforcement agencies with the funding and support they need to protect our communities.”

According to Gov. DeSantis’ office, law enforcement recruits have moved to Florida from every state and two U.S. Territories, including more than 340 recruits from states such as Illinois, California and New York. Each of the 4,000 law enforcement officers has received a $5,000 bonus after taxes, bringing the total amount awarded through the program to more than $27 million.

“Under the leadership of Governor DeSantis, Florida is the preeminent law-and-order state,” said Florida Secretary of Commerce J. Alex Kelly. “By reaching 4,000 new officers since the Law Enforcement Recruitment Bonus Program’s inception, we not only support new officers but ensure that veteran Florida officers are supported in their heroic mission to provide safety to their local communities for years to come.”
