Senator Aaron Bean Receives Florida Sheriffs Association's 2017 Friend of the Sheriff Award
Sen. Bean was honored for supporting drug control legislation
Jacksonville, Fla. – Senator Aaron Bean (R-Fernandina Beach) has received the Florida Sheriffs Association’s 2017 Friend of the Sheriff Award. Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams presented this award to Senator Bean in appreciation for supporting drug control legislation to address Florida’s heroin and Fentanyl epidemic. During the last day of the 2017 legislative session, Senator Bean was one of the deciding votes in approving the motion to recede from a problematic amendment that would have caused HB 477, Controlled Substances, to fail.
“I am truly humbled and honored to receive the Florida Sheriffs Association’s 2017 Friend of the Sheriff Award,” said Senator Bean. “As a longtime advocate for law enforcement, I understand the importance of combating the heroin and Fentanyl epidemic that is plaguing the State of Florida. I look forward to working with the Florida Sheriffs Association to ensure that law enforcement has the tools they need to protect Florida and its citizens.”
Senator Bean represents Senate District 4, which includes parts of Nassau and Duval Counties. He can be contacted in Tallahassee at (850) 487-5004 or in his District Office at (904) 757-5039.
