Carr Talent points out the urgency for new officers will vary from state to state based on larger populations and more complex crime issues.

“Over the last several years it’s been tough when looking to hire new officers. You’ve had the defund the police movement, elected officials using cops as a scapegoat is something goes wrong in the community,” said Fraternal Order of Polices State Chairman Steve Zona.

But Zona says with the rise in crime, the shift has turned and ‘support the blue mentality” is ever increasing in the state.

Zona also contributes an upbeat number of those looking to be hired in law enforcement, to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and his pro-police policies. 

More cities looking to hire are increasing the salaries and offering better benefits, pensions and signing bonuses.
