Results in no confidence vote against BSO Sheriff Gregory Tony to be released


FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - The results of the no confidence vote against Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony regarding his response to protecting deputies during the COVID-19 pandemic are set to be announced Monday evening.

The results of the vote cast by deputy union members will be made available during a media conference scheduled to begin at 4 p.m.

Voting officially closed at 2 p.m. Monday.

The vote came after Tony suspended union president Jeff Bell days after he wrote an opinion piece criticizing Tony for what, he described, as a lack of personal protective equipment for deputies amid the virus.

Following the suspension, a number of other deputies anonymously stepped forward confirming the union president’s claims of unsafe working environments.
