Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will pay cops who defy vaccine mandate a $5,000 bonus

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has announced that he will pay unvaccinated police officers from other states $5,000 if they relocate to the Sunshine State to work, as cops across the U.S. continue to leave their posts in droves over COVID vaccine mandates.

‘We’re actually actively working to recruit out-of-state law enforcement, because we do have needs in our police and our sheriff’s departments,’ the governor told Fox News on Sunday.

‘In the next legislative session, I’m going to hopefully sign legislation that gives a $5,000 bonus to any out-of-state law enforcement that relocates in Florida,’ he told the network’s Sunday Morning Futures program.

Then, addressing officers in cities like New York, Seattle and Minneapolis, DeSantis said: ‘If you’re not being treated well, we’ll treat you better here.’
