[FL] 152 to 3 "No Confidence" vote on Chief Scott & he resigns
Attitudes about domestic violence matter most maybe at the top of the command chain. If the chief's not on-board it will be close to impossible to make progress.
Boca Raton Police Chief Andrew Scott's wealthy friend was being arrested - on charges he assaulted his wife, another policeman, & a restaurant manager - when the chief made the decision to interrupt the flow of that process. There were citizen protests, a lot of media attention, and ultimately the Boca Raton police officers gave a no-confidence vote of 152 to 3 & the Chief has now resigned.
