Representatives and Members,
PBA and BSO have been meeting on the issue of concealing visible tattoos on uniformed members with some type of garment. Colonel Dale and I have agreed to identify (6) members with tattoos to participate in a selection committee designed to test and evaluate garments which will address the objectives of the Sheriff’s Office. It was further agreed that BSO would provide the garment. Please contact Jeff Marano with the name of any member who has tattoos and wishes to participate in the process.

Yesterday we talked about the presence of uniformed officers, who seemed to be on duty, at a Rick Scott event and the coverage it received all over the press. Today we have found out that we have made the news in even more media sources, read on at the bottom of this message.

Commentary – "King George or George Patton?"
First of all thanks to TMOFS, a Detective who called the PBA regarding the Class "B" mandate for suckers stuck working the Fourth of July. Members stuck working the 4th have been wearing shorts and a POLO shirt since Ralph Lauren was in second grade. Bad enough you have to stand a post in the heat and greet the Hialeah residents as they come on to the beach, but now King George mandates the only POLO shirt which can be worn is the Marine Unit issued POLO. Well that excludes 90% of the members working that day. The best part is he issued this DA decision on the second of July. Good Luck as it takes several months to get a uniform request filled. A member pointed out on this holiday while the rest of the country was home celebrating. The 4th of July is where the American Colonists declared their independence from Great Britain and their tyrannical ruler, King George. Finally the local King... the boy king allowed for other POLO shirts to be worn after the PBA spent two days on the phone and e mail with HR to attempt to rectify this insanity. Remember the previous 10-19 times when you had some spare time to fill out the Uniform requests forms?
Led by a brass band, George Patton had marched into and liberated Palermo, donned in his class "A" uniform. On the 4th our little General strolled down the boardwalk waving at fans attending the celebration, as any true politician would do. In all honesty the people he was waving to, he most likely knew as they too live in Dade County.
Attached is a copy of the postcards CSR/KD sent out to mislead the public and coerce them to vote against the members in the referendum. Please take a minute and show the propaganda to the new Officers at HPD to show them what the City is capable of.

Also, I wanted to show you that we have been active in supporting candidates who are pro-law enforcement, and active in the defeat of candidates who are not - http://www.browardbeat.com/cops-union-takes-aim-at-commission-candidate/
Additionally, I made the public aware that officers who I believe were on duty, were appearing as campaign supporters for the election of Gov. Scott, this generated a lot of publicity. See bottom of page for links.
