A deputies’ union said Thursday afternoon that it has “no confidence” in Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel. The union revealed the results of a vote, which indicated 534 out of 628 who voted said they had no confidence in the sheriff.

Jeff Bell, the president of the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association, said the union’s “members have displayed great courage to come out and vote under threat of retaliation and reprisal from the sheriff.”

Bell said he phoned the sheriff, but could not reach him, instead leaving a voice message. He said the plan is to present the union’s vote to Gov. Rick Scott and ask him to “please make change and replace the sheriff with somebody who is capable of amazing leadership.”

Bell added, “Amazing leadership starts from the top, and there is no amazing leadership here. We are a ship out at sea with no power — adrift.”
