PBSO reached "Excelsior" status: highest rating for law enforcement in the State of Florida

About the video below: The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office (PBSO) has earned Excelsior status from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement. It is the highest possible achievement for a Law Enforcement/Corrections agency, meeting the highest possible standards instituted by the state. It is the sixth accreditation for PBSO representing its service over the last 15 years.

Congratulations Ric Bradshaw.

Some Lake Worth history is in order here. In 2011 then-Commissioner Suzanne Mulvehill and then-City Manager Susan Stanton tried to kick PBSO out of the City—fortunately for our City, they failed. 

Below is a video of the two in full retreat at a City Hall press conference in which I was in attendance:

At the 6:10 mark in the video I ask Stanton a question she clumsily tries to avoid answering. Enjoy the video!
