White Nationalist and President of the National Policy Institute Richard Spencer is scheduled to speak at the University of Florida campus in Gainesville on October 19th. There have been public safety issues pertaining to supporters and protestors at previous Richard Spencer speaking engagements nationwide which have led to riots and wide spread public disturbances. As a result Alachua County Sheriff’s Office, Gainesville PD, and University of Florida PD has requested statewide law enforcement assistance/services for the event. The VBPD Critical Response Team (CRT) with assistance from Indian River Shores Public Safety are on their way to Gainesville to assist the University of Florida PD in their efforts to make sure the citizens, students, faculty, and visitors remain safe! And don't forget to come out and meet some of these brave officers at National Night Out on October 24th at Humiston Park where they will be displaying our SWAT vehicle and equipment!
