The Broward Sheriff’s Advisory Council, Inc. (B.S.A.C.) is a non-profit 501 (C)(3) Corporation founded in 1975 by then Sheriff Nick Navarro and is funded by donation from its members.
The B.S.A.C. members are men and women who are dedicated to supporting all of the law enforcement community of Broward County, not just the Broward Sheriff’s Office.
The B.S.A.C. mission is to provide financial assistance to the families of officers killed or disabled in the line of duty. In addition, they also help develop educational programs to assist and support the State of Florida in drug abuse prevention and crime prevention.
The financial aid given by the B.S.A.C. takes on several forms, depending on the needs of the surviving family. In many cases, the need is for immediate help to pay expenses such as rent, mortgage, food, utilities, and other household expenses that require a fast response. That is where the BSAC shines. We can step in immediately with director approval and help in any way needed.
In other cases, funds are provided for college tuition through the Florida Prepaid Scholarship Program. In others, B.S.A.C. funds provided immediate cash for room and board of the student.
In our 35 plus years, the B.S.A.C. has provided over $100,000 in scholarships to the surviving children of fallen Officers. Our goal in the greater sense is to provide help and support to all citizens of Broward Country.
As individual advisory deputies, we are each personally dedicated to this goal.
