The public's confidence in the Broward County Sheriff's Office isn't just damaged, it's completely shattered.
That's what the new Sheriff Gregory Tony said Thursday as he discussed ways to rebuild that confidence.
He promised more training for his deputies when it comes to responding to mass shootings and more accountability from leadership, including himself.Tony acknowledges it will take time to rebuild confidence after the failures during the Parkland school shooting.
Tony also promised to run for election in 2020 to continue working on improvements to the agency.
Governor Ron DeSantis appointed the former Coral Springs Police sergeant to the sheriff's position after suspending Scott Israel.
The former sheriff has vowed to fight to get his job back and told a group of Democrats at a senior community in Pembroke Pines Thursday that no matter what happens, he'll run for sheriff in 2020.
