TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – In response to Governor Rick Scott’s legislative budget proposal for an additional $30 million for state law enforcement pay raises, Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis issued the following statement:

“Today, Governor Rick Scott moved forward with a proposal that will ensure Florida remains one of the safest places to work, get an education and raise a family,” said CFO Patronis. “By increasing our state’s ability to recruit and retain top law enforcement talent, Florida can continue to raise the bar when identifying the trends and combatting the ever-evolving crimes that harm consumers.”

“This proposal sends a clear message to Florida's state law enforcement community, including our Department of Financial Services' 258 hard-working officers, that our leaders stand in full support of the sacrifices they have made to serve our great state.”
