Open Letter to Governor Ron DeSantis: Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd

“YOU CAN’T POLICE A COMMUNITY IF YOU DON’T HOLD YOURSELF TO A HIGHER STANDARD THAN YOU EXPECT OF THE PEOPLE FROM THE COMMUNITY.”

Dear Governor Ron DeSantis:

As a strong man of religion, a great husband, a wonderful dad, and a striving governor, you know, many decisions are hard to make. However, decisions must be made. Granted, some decisions are harder than others, nevertheless, surely you and the first lady pray that you make more right decisions than wrong.

Law enforcement officers are sworn in and given the power to arrest anyone whom they believe have committed a crime, no matter the person, their place of employment or the crime. There are 67 county sheriffs who were sworn in to make valued decisions for not only the citizens that are in their county, but for the citizens and visitors in the state of Florida, especially those who are most vulnerable—the children.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd continues to hold press conferences for the world to see that he is a sheriff who makes decisions. Sheriff Grady Judd doesn’t seem to hesitate about arresting criminals, no matter if they work for him or if they’re lay persons. Many lay citizens of central Florida do appreciate Sheriff Grady Judd’s decision in his continuance to be transparent, as well as to show the mugshots of lay criminals and mugshots of his employees (now former employees).

There should be a Florida statute that makes it mandatory for Florida Sheriffs to hold press conferences whenever there is an arrest/ arrests within their agency.

In the video link below, Sheriff Grady Judd has a lot to say. Without a doubt, all people who are sworn to represent Florida’s Judicial System—especially due to the existence of the Death Penalty—should take their jobs more serious than an employee working at a fast-food restaurant. Creditability must matter—extremely matter in all jobs within Florida’s Judicial System. As Sheriff Grady Judd states, “YOU CAN’T POLICE A COMMUNITY IF YOU DON’T HOLD YOURSELF TO A HIGHER STANDARD THAN YOU EXPECT OF THE PEOPLE FROM THE COMMUNITY.”

Respectfully,
