More than a dozen NYPD cops have ditched the Big Apple to join the force in a small Florida city — part of a nationwide trend of disgruntled officers finding greener pastures in pro-police communities.
Lakeland — a community of 108,000 people 35 miles east of Tampa — mounted a social media campaign targeting NYC cops earlier this year, and in April dispatched a delegation to recruit in Times Square.
The article goes on to state the following:
Fourteen former Finest moved to Lakeland in the past year — 12 of them wooed over the past two months thanks to the recruiting trip.
The report highlights a press conference that took place with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and the former NYPD officers on September 7.
Former NYPD cop Matthew Spoto said coming to Florida was an “eye opener,” and said back in New York “it was almost like I was ashamed to be a police officer.”
In New York, Spoto said he was afraid to even tell people he was a cop, and would lie and say he was a bartender instead.
Spoto said when a Lakeland recruiter told him he could park his police car in front of his home, “I thought that was mind-blowing.”
