John G, was just reading something. It seems that it is not a requirement for the Sheriff, an elected official, to be a Certified Law Enforcement Officer in the State of Florida.Maybe with your ideas on how to address the many law enforcement issues within our county, you should have run. Bringing the problems you have found to the light of day would be an immense public service. Even if you didn't win, you wouldn't be so narrowly constrained to those you reach on SoWal. Just a thought, because last I checked, Sheriff Adkinson was running unopposed.
