Gov. DeSantis gives $1,000 bonuses to first responders for third year in a row

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Monday afternoon at Craig Municipal Airport in Jacksonville that all first responders in the state will receive $1,000 bonuses for the third year in a row.

DeSantis then handed out checks to members of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and Jacksonville Fire and Rescue who were in attendance.

Eligible recipients of the first responder recognition bonus payments are police officers, sheriff’s deputies, paramedics, emergency medical technicians and firefighters employed by local governments throughout the state.

DeSantis started to hand out the bonuses in 2020 as a way to recognize first responders working during the pandemic and to show support to police who were receiving criticism following the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minnesota police officer. ................

Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
