Well just like that 2019 is coming to a close. As I said at the beginning of the year, our profession would be facing many challenges, which it has and will continue to. We have been able to establish for the first time in some jurisdictions new things like "step plans."
Happy holidays to all our friends of the South Florida PBA and our incredible members. I pray this month keeps you all blessed and safe. Once again, the PBA hosted its pink-themed Domino Tournament on Friday, October 18, 2019, in support of breast cancer awareness month benefitting the PBA Love Fund. It was a great turnout with the biggest crowd yet.
December is here once again. The year has flown by! I hope everyone is ready for Christmas. A new year is about to begin and we here at the PBA are looking forward to a new year and all that it has to offer. Now, let’s get down to business.
I am so proud of my Corrections family. It seems that the time has come when Correctional Officers feel safe testifying on their own behalf.
In the last thirty years, there have been many positive changes in law enforcement. Years ago, officers were taken off foot posts and placed in patrol cars. Today, officers are being returned to the community in order to get to know the people and to work with them to solve society’s problems.
