WEST PALM BEACH —
Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw doesn’t like “open carry” and believes body cameras are only part of preventing police shootings.
Speaking to an Economic Forum of Palm Beach County audience Tuesday at the Kravis Center, Bradshaw also repeated that he’s running for reelection and defended the way the Sheriff’s Office investigates deputy-involved shootings, which came under scrutiny in a joint Palm Beach Post-News Channel 5 series.
“There’s not a deputy that gets up in the morning and says, ‘Yeah, I’d like to get involved in a shooting today,’” Bradshaw said. “It’s absolute hell. They have three investigations.”
