Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday is expected to name former Coral Springs Police Sgt. Gregory Tony to Broward County’s top law enforcement job, according to three people familiar with his decision.

Tony, who would be the county’s first African-American sheriff, was recommended by a father whose daughter was killed in Parkland school shooting last February. The announcement is expected at 3 p.m. Friday.

DeSantis is expected to suspend current Broward Sheriff Scott Israel for his agency’s role in the Parkland massacre.

Tony runs a security firm that specializes in active-shooter training, which appeared to be lacking in Broward when multiple deputies failed to immediately engage Nikolas Cruz on Feb. 14, before he killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Andrew Pollack, father of murder victim Meadow Pollack, told POLITICO Florida that Tony is a good friend and a police officer who had retired as the “most-decorated sergeant” in Coral Springs, which borders Parkland.

“He’s a law-and-order-type policeman who wants to do right by the community and keep the community safe,” Pollack said. Pollack could not confirm or deny that Tony had been picked for the job.

A person close to DeSantis said Tony’s appointment and Israel’s suspension are “a done deal — at least it was as of earlier today.”

A second person close to the administration described Tony as a “fabulous pick.”
