Sheriff Al Lamberti Rallies Supporters for his Reelection

Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti and Coral Springs City Commissioner and Mayoral Candidate Vincent Boccard held a Meet and Greet where they rallied their supporters for the upcoming election in November.

Held last week at the Eagle Trace Country Club, Lamberti told supporters that he was the only person to get on ballot for a countywide election with a candidate petition, saving $11,000 in filing fees. Lamberti said he not only collected 11,000 petitions needed, but an additional 5,000 as well.

Lamberti was named Sheriff of Broward County by Governor Charlie Crist in 2007 after Sheriff Ken Jenne was indicted on federal corruption charges. He has risen through the ranks starting in 1977 as a Detention Deputy. He went on to become a Road Patrol Deputy, then a Road Patrol Sergeant in the North Broward and Lauderdale Lakes districts.

Lamberti then became Lieutenant and Captain in the Organized Crime Division. In January 1990, he assumed the position of District Chief in Deerfield Beach. He was promoted to the rank of Major in 1998. Lamberti then went on to serve as Interim Chief of Police for the cities of Hollywood and North Lauderdale.

One year after his appointment, Lamberti was Elected the 17th Sheriff of Broward County in 2008.

He runs against Scott Israel on November 6th.

Broward Sheriff’s Offices oversee 17 districts including the Ft Lauderdale-Hollywood Int’l Airport and the Broward County Courthouse. BSO does not oversee the Coral Springs Police Department although residents still pay for their countywide services in their taxes.

    I’m supporting Scott Israel for Broward Sheriff. Broward’s a great place to live and I don’t want the county’s reputation tarnished by a crooked sheriff’s office run by Al Lamberti. Wasn’t it Republican Sheriff Al Lamberti’s duty to stop such corrupt behaviors as his officer taking gifts or his officers being used as a gang of thugs doing the bidding of Scott Rothstein?

    Where was Al Lamberti when convicted criminal Scott Rothstein’s Gestapo, also known as BSO deputies under Sheriff Al Lamberti, harassed Broward citizens? Rothstein and his associates spent nearly $200,000 to elect Republican Lambertti Sheriff. Their day is over.

    It’s absolutely disgraceful that Sheriff Al Lamberti allowed Ponzi scheme criminal Scott Rothstein to use the BSO as Rothstein’s personal goon squad. .

    Talk all you want. Al Lamberti will be reelected again in November. He’s got tons of supporters and money. What are you offering?

  • Zolland

    Lamberti is a criminal who was appointed by Crist, another criminal. I’d rather see him rotting in a prison cell than running around as Sheriff. Anyone who wants to rid Broward of corruption should be voting for Scott Israel. The choice is clear.
