FDLE Raids Escambia County Public Safety Office

November 8, 2019

Agents from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement raided the Escambia County Public Safety Building Thursday afternoon.

FDLE seized county records in connection with an investigation.

“The county continues to cooperate with an ongoing state investigation that includes the gathering of records, some of which are housed at the public safety building,” Escambia County Administrator Janice Gilley told NorthEscambia.com.

The Florida Department of Health began an investigation earlier this year into allegations involving the possible falsification of training certificates by Escambia EMS.

In an April 2019 statement, the county said: “While we are unable to comment about specifics of any ongoing investigation, we can tell you that our own processes through our medical director alerted county leadership to possible training discrepancies and other areas of concern within EMS in 2018. A challenge was finding documentable evidence to bring forward for review. An internal investigation began in January 2019 and then was turned over by the county to the Florida Department of Health with a cover letter from our medical director outlining our concerns, as the scope falls under their jurisdiction and expertise.”

    Can we just be honest? Escambia doesnt want to clean up their act.

    A state EMS office employee referred an out of state applicant to Escambia for their open manager job. His resume is more than required for the position and he has dealt with clean ups like this before where employees were pencil whipping training.

    He did not even get an interview. Instead they want to repeat the mistakes of the past.

    They have an educational system that isn’t fucntioning.
    They lost hundreds of thousands in bad billing in a change over months ago.
    They are going to have to forfeit hundreds of thousands of additional dollars over the educational fall out because otherwise they are guilty of insurance fraud putting unsafe and uncertified providers on the street.
    Oh, and they have a drug issue under investigation too for missing narcotics.

    Other than that a typical day in Escambia.

    Christopher, everything about your sentence, and I use that term loosely, is terrible. There are capitalization, spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors in those 15 words. Amazing
