Just a week after threatening to throw sheriff’s deputies out of Southwest Ranches, town officials are cozying up to Sheriff Scott Israel.
Check out the picture below posted last night on Town Attorney Keith Poliakoff’s Facebook page.
With smiles like that, how can anybody believe Southwest Ranches is really angry at the Sheriff’s policing of its community?
The Town of Southwest Ranches thanked Sheriff Israel for attending its meeting last Thursday night. The Sheriff advised the Town that crime is down throughout the entire County and that his use of intervention programs instead of imprisonment is already off to an incredible start. Thanks to the Sheriff who took the time to speak. Hope BSO and the Town are able to come to terms on a new agreement. — with Scott J. Israel and Jeff Nelson.
Nelson is Southwest Ranches’ mayor.
