FDLE Commissioner Swearingen applauds State of the State address

“I thank Governor DeSantis for his leadership and guidance in keeping Florida’s citizens safe.  Under the Governor’s direction, FDLE is finalizing a threat assessment statewide strategy.  This cutting-edge strategy will have a positive impact on public safety by identifying individuals on the pathway to violence and implementing a plan to manage or reduce the threat,” said Commissioner Swearingen.

“Governor DeSantis is also recommending the expansion of Florida’s statewide genetic genealogy program, additional resources for FDLE labs and bolstering the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Trust Fund used to provide training to Florida’s law enforcement officers.  I look forward to working with the Governor, Florida Cabinet and the Legislature in 2020.”
