BSO names first black woman as undersheriff

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - The Broward Sheriff’s Office has selected the first black woman to be Undersheriff on the force.

Sheriff Gregory Tony selected BSO Col. Nichole Anderson to be his second in command.

Anderson has been with BSO for 23 years, achieving ranks of Major and Colonel.

“There is a change in roles and responsibilities, but the mission is still clear: Service,” Anderson said, “service to the agency and service to the community that we serve.”

Anderson replaces Col. Sean Zukowsky, who resigned to spend more time with his family.
