Palm Beach County sheriff receives FPAA Leadership Award

The Florida Prosecuting Attorneys Association (FPAA) has chosen Sheriff Ric L. Bradshaw as this year’s recipient of the Criminal Justice Leadership Award.

The Criminal Justice Leadership Award was created in 1998. FPAA is a non-profit corporation comprised of the 20 elected state attorneys (the Board) and the more than 1,900 assistant state attorneys. The primary purpose of the association is education through seminars, written materials and electronic media.

Sheriff Bradshaw, a career law enforcement professional, is responsible for leading the largest law enforcement agency in Palm Beach County. He has a successful track record of more than 40 years in law enforcement.

He rose through the ranks of the West Palm Beach Police Department. In 1996 he was appointed as chief of police. In 2005, Bradshaw was sworn in as sheriff of Palm Beach County, heading a department comprised of some 4,000 employees.

PBC State Attorney Michael McAuliffe nominated Sheriff Bradshaw for the FPAA Leadership Award. “As the sheriff’s crime fighting partner, I know personally how much Ric contributes to the community and the state. I am thrilled that my fellow state attorneys have recognized Sheriff Bradshaw with our criminal justice leadership award. I am proud of Ric and his office.”
