Palm Beach County, FL– Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw has announced that he intends to run for 6th term.
The Sheriff announced Tuesday that we will be seeing his name on the 2024 election ballot.
Sheriff Bradshaw was first elected in 2004 and is Palm Beach County’s longest-serving sheriff.
He is said to have 50 years of experience in law enforcement and began his career with the West Palm Beach Police Department.
“I’ve dedicated my life to serve and protect the citizens of Palm Beach County. As sheriff, I have ensured Palm Beach County has one of the nation’s premier law enforcement agencies,” Bradshaw said in a written statement. “We have taken down the gangs, busted up the pill mills, hunted down cyber predators, and locked up human traffickers. From community policing to the front lines of homeland security, Palm Beach County is safer today than ever before. I am running for reelection to finish the job and keep your safety priority #1.”
While some may have had concerns about Bradshaw’s health after the 75-year-old underwent a heart procedure last year, Sheriff’s office spokesman Teri Barbera assured that the procedure was an elective procedure and not an emergency.
Bradshaw is the 16th sheriff in Palm Beach County and heads six departments with 4,300 employees and nearly 1,500 volunteers.
