Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has extended open arms to America’s police officers currently working in cities besieged by Democrat anti-cop and police defunding movements, inviting them to work in their profession of choice in Florida.
“If you have a chance to do law enforcement in Florida versus some of these other jurisdictions, you’re much better off in Florida because we’ll actually stand by law enforcement,” DeSantis said in a speech in Green Cove Springs.
“There are people in these police departments in various other parts of the country who, if they can get a job in Florida, they want to come to Florida to be able to do it,” he added. “Because the culture is better, and they understand they’re going to be supported much more resolutely than what they do.”
DeSantis said the reason that America is seeing huge spikes in crime in many parts of the country is because of not standing up for law enforcement, having weak policies they’re letting people out, and they’re not prosecuting people who are committing habitual offenses.
“That is clearly causing disastrous consequences,” he added. “We’re happy to be supportive of law enforcement.”
