TALLAHASSEE, FL – The Florida Police Chiefs Association (FPCA) today announced its endorsement of Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater in the upcoming election for Florida’s Chief Financial Officer. The FPCA applauded Atwater’s history of supporting Florida’s law enforcement, specifically his efforts to eliminate the fraud that increases the cost of living for Floridians and protect the state’s most vulnerable citizens from financial harm and abuse.
“In just four years, CFO Atwater has made thousands of insurance fraud arrests and has shut down more than 150 organized crime rings,” said Amy Mercer, the FPCA Executive Director. “He has demonstrated his strong support of Florida’s law enforcement, and we are fortunate to have his leadership and commitment to our state’s safety.”
CFO Atwater is dedicated to investigating and arresting criminals involved in financial fraud in Florida.
