News of a replacement for Sheriff Israel comes just days after he told his staff that DeSantis was suspending him over his office's handling of the Parkland schooting.

"Today I have issued an executive order suspending Scott Israel as the sheriff of Broward County", DeSantis announced outside the Broward Sheriff's Office headquarters in Fort Lauderdale. Tony is the first African-American to serve as Broward County Sheriff. Governor DeSantis was forced to use the plane because former Governor Rick Scott sold the state air fleet and blocked lawmakers from buying a new plane past year.

DeSantis, who was on the way to Fort Lauderdale for a press conference, was unharmed, his office said. - Gov. Ron DeSantis asked for their resignations, but some South Florida Water Management District board members are declining to step down.

A state commission investigating the massacre recently concluded Israel's changes to the department's active shooter policy may have contributed to some deputies' inaction during the school shooting.

Israel countered that other mass shootings did not result in the suspension of top law enforcement officials, including the bloodbath in 2016 in Orlando at the Pulse nightclub. "No one was suspended in 2017 after the mass shooting at an Orlando factory", said Israel.

Israel said he would fight the suspension in court and before the Florida Senate. The state Senate has the power to permanently remove a sheriff from office. And furthermore, when Scott Israel had said that they had no legal means to go and arrest this murderer, actually that was a lie too.

According to Florida statute, the governor has the power to suspend the sheriff for actions such as "misfeasance" and "neglect of duty" and may fill the office by appointment for the period of suspension.

In a separate statement introducing Tony, DeSantis added, "The people of Broward County deserve accountable, competent leaders who can safeguard our communities". "Scott Israel misused his authority and abused his public trust by politicizing the nation's largest fully accredited Sheriff's Office for his own political ambitions".

Parents also bashed Israel for saying during a nationally broadcast interview he had provided "amazing leadership" in the shooting's aftermath.

Israel for years has called for tougher gun laws in Florida, a stance that created critics long before the school shooting. "These incidents demonstrate Sheriff Israel's repeated incompetence and neglect of duty".

Israel, a Democrat, has served as the elected sheriff of the agency with 5,800 employees since 2013.
