BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw, under fire for recent missteps, is now apparently questioning the need for his public information officer who makes in the area of $140,000 a year.
Columnist Jose Lambiet, on his “Gossip Extra” website, reveals through his exclusive reporting that Bradshaw is seeking donations to move public information to an app. The app, presumably, will not need human interaction and therefore renders the public information office useless. The office already releases very little information directly, telling media to purchase arrest reports from the court clerk’s office and refusing to release daily blotter logs.
Bradshaw, who has held elected office for nearly two decades, is apparently soliciting donations from private business. He already made a deal that is seemingly in violation of Florida law with “CrimeMapping.com,” providing the private company with police records not otherwise accessible by the public.
Here is Lambiet’s article.
