The sheriff of Duval County should be fired immediately for his lack of doing anything to put any kind of true pressure on the "Criminal Element" in Duval County. I wish like to reach out to the Governor Of The State Of Florida and ask him to send a Military Unit Of Military Police from the Florida National Guard and State Troopers to Patrol the streets of Duval County since the Duval County Sheriff is not able to do anything with the extreme lawless crime wave that has hit Duval County. The Duval County Sheriff is not able to keep the streets safe at night or matter to the effect keep them safe during the day time either. Its time that a Military Police Unit with there Humvees are brought into Duval County so they have a very visible presence to give residents of Duval County a peace of mind that there security will protected by a well armed force such as Military Police. The State Troopers could be used in security role being out on patrol and as well as cracking down on the "criminal element" that does exist in Duval County. The Duval County Sheriff Office are unable to crack down organized crime element in Duval County at all. Its time now to bring in a M P Unit of the Florida National Guard into Duval County to restore security to streets of Duval County in which the current Sheriff has not done and a troop of State Troopers to help out with security on the streets of Duval County and crack down on the organized crime element that is in the county and the sheriff has done nothing about either.
