Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Hopes To Offer Bonuses To Law Enforcement Officers Fired Over Vaccine Mandates In Other States

Last updated October 27, 2021

Many states are defunding their police departments and firing police officers who do not follow the vaccine mandates. However, one state governor has offered those officers a $5,000 bonus to come to his state.

Relocate to Florida?

Many states, including Washington, Massachusetts, Illinois, and California, to name a few, are suspending or, in some cases firing police officers who are not complying with the current mandates. However, Florida is not the only state trying to recruit those who are being forced out. For example, Indiana has been recruiting officers from Chicago who are losing their jobs or are at risk.

Governor DeSantis sat down with Fox News and told them, "In Florida, not only are we going to want to protect the law enforcement and all the jobs, we're actually actively working to recruit out of state law enforcement because we do have needs in our police and our sheriffs' departments."

He is hoping that in the next legislative session, he will be able to sign legislation giving officers from other states a $5,000 bonus if they come to Florida. He made a point to say that it is not just for officers who are losing their job to mandates. It is for everyone who wants to be treated better as a member of law enforcement.

DeSantis has a history of supporting first responders and law enforcement, even trying to support them with an anti-rioting bill, which would have sent rioters to jail if they resisted arrest, damaged property, or attacked an officer.

DeSantis said, "And we are going to stand by the men and women in uniform." It is nice to see a governor who actually sees the value in our law enforcement officers and wants to help them build happy healthy careers. It is a nice change from the much louder news cycle.

  1. I knew in my heart that Florida was the best place to move too, Gov. DeSantis has proven to be on the side of Law enforcement officers and citizens. His anti-riot policies contribute to the safety and security of citizens and businesses state wide. Thank you Gov. DeSantis for your dedication to this state and citizens.

  2. 2yrs. Can’t come FAST enough for me to retire & get the Hell out of LIBERAL MASSACHUSETTS hope I can last FLORIDA & Gov. DeSantis are for Me STAY STRONG B Safe stay Healthy GOV see you Soon πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

  3. Let the Progressive Democrat's feel the punch as the criminals take over then what willthe idiots do but cry.

  4. Problem with inviting Police Officers to Florida, if they're coming from Yankee states, they're likely going to vote like they did in said Yankee states. They might feel beholding to Governor DeSantis and not vote agin' him, but I wouldn't trust their voting records anymore than I'd trust a diarrhea sneeze.

  5. I'm glad that Florida has a Patriotic Governor who supports The Constitution! It's nice to know that those police officers who were fired, and/or forced to resign for doing what they feel is right, are wanted and welcome in Florida. The bonus offered will help with moving costs too. I'm sure the police officers will be thankful to serve and protect the public where they are appreciated!

  6. I wish others with stand with Governor DeSantis. Our country would be in better shape. Thank you sir for all you are doing and accomplishing. May God continue to bless your efforts and give you His strength.
