Florida Gov. DeSantis Recruits Chicago Area Law Enforcement Officers Through Bonus Program

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced Thursday that the state of Florida is launching billboards in the Greater Chicago Area, where crime rates are soaring, to recruit law enforcement officers to the Sunshine State.

Through the Florida Law Enforcement Recruitment Bonus Payment Program, out-of-state police officers who relocate to Florida will receive a $5,000 signing bonus.

Under Illinois law, foreign nationals are now able to become police officers. Additionally, earlier this year, Illinois became the first state to completely eliminate its cash bail system, allowing dangerous criminals back into communities. 

In contrast, Governor DeSantis has signed historic law-and-order legislation for three consecutive years, including House Bill 1627 earlier this year, which protects Floridians from these disastrous “bail reform” policies being pushed by liberal politicians and prosecutors in high-crime jurisdictions across the country.
