The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting occurred in his jurisdiction in February 2018 while he was Sheriff, and his department and deputies were criticized.
In October 2019, the Senate of Florida voted to confirm Israel's suspension from the position of Broward Sheriff. On July 15, 2020, Israel was hospitalized with COVID-19.
He became a patrol officer for the Fort Lauderdale Police Department in 1979. In the 1980s he was investigated for 10 incidents by Fort Lauderdale Police Department Internal Affairs division.
The incidents included 6 accusations of "excessive or unnecessary force", shooting at a drug suspect, and using profanity. Israel was cleared of all wrongdoing.
The records of five of these investigations, including two of the more serious incidents, which involved allegations of false arrest and theft, were later reported to be missing from the city records.
Israel later worked in narcotics and later served as a SWAT commander. From 2004-08, he was the chief of police in North Bay Village. He left that position in 2008 to run for Sheriff, but lost the election.
Sheriff Israel was criticized by his political opponents,who accused him of hiring his political supporters to work in "community outreach" jobs that consisted mostly of going to meetings and touting the Sheriff's Department's success.
Ten such workers were hired since 2013, for salaries totaling $634,479.
Scott Israel earns his income from his businesses and from other related organizations. He also earns his income from his work as a law enforcement officer. He has an estimated net worth of $ 4 million dollars.
"I want the community to understand we are not a law enforcement agency", said Sheriff Scott Israel.
Democrats have generally withheld judgment about Israel, while many Florida Republicans have said the county’s Democratic sheriff should be removed from office.
He’s the perfect foil—a mouthy, pugnacious Democrat who isn’t known for deep thinking before he starts speaking.
