Five Correctional Officers Arrested in Florida on Drug Charges

Five correctional officers from Dade Correctional Institution have been arrested for attempting to traffic drugs inside the maximum security prison in Florida City. The FBI reports that Captain Jimmy Love Jr., Officer Dennard Flukler, Officer Alex Davis, Officer Ivis Grace, and Officer Shantavia Johnson conspired and attempted to sell drugs to inmates in the prison.

Each of these officers could be punished by serving 20 years in prison and be charged with a $250,000 fine.

All law enforcement officers, including correctional officers, have accepted a position to maintain law and order. When you are in the business of enforcing laws, you should be held to a higher standard in society when you break the laws you enforce on others.
