The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office located in Florida, along with hundreds of Police Departments across America are making one of their toughest decisions; a reduction in its police force. “This is unprecedented,” said Nelson Cuba. Cuba, President of Fraternal Order of Police 530. Cuba speculates that as many as 50 officers may lose their jobs at the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

Again, just south of Jacksonville, in the Miami Dade Police Department, another 90 police officers will lose their jobs. In my 25-year career I have never seen the economy affect my brothers and sisters in such a way, even our bulletproof vests can’t protect us now. When will the bleeding end?
