FHP Trooper Joe Sanchez Considers Run for Miami-Dade Sheriff

Another name is being tossed into the hat in the race to be Miami-Dade county's next top cop.

Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Joe Sanchez released a statement where he says he is considering making a run for Miami-Dade County Sheriff in 2024:

“Over the past few weeks, I have been approached by dozens of law enforcement colleagues, local and state elected officials, community leaders, friends and supporters, who have asked me to run for Sheriff of Miami-Dade County in 2024. I want to thank everyone for their words of encouragement and support. As a 36-year law-enforcement veteran of the Florida Highway Patrol, as well as a local municipal official for 11, I know what it takes to keep our community safe. The policies advanced by the Democrats and their leftist supporters have resulted in American cities devolving into vandalism, anarchy, and chaos. Miami-Dade residents want law and order and will not stand for that. I am actively considering a run for Sheriff and, once I have made a final decision, we will make an official announcement. Please stay tuned. Thank you.”

The Army veteran was previously a Miami city commissioner for 11 years and is also the husband of Ana Cuervo, a reporter for Telemundo.

If he runs, he'll join attorney Rickey Mitchell, and Ruaman De La Rua, a Miami police officer.

Miami-Dade Police Director Alfredo “Freddy” Ramirez dropped out of the race last week.
