Lamberti has challenges to face quickly

The following is a correction to an editorial in the Sun-Sentinel dated October 31, 2007.

"...Lamberti has to figure out how to trim nearly $17 million from his budget of over $700 million, because of mandatory property tax cuts. There is also the issue of Pembroke Park possibly dropping the Sheriff's Office in an economic move..."

CORRECTION: The Sun-Sentinel once again is incorrectly reporting that the city of Pembroke Park is considering dropping BSO for its law enforcement and fire rescue services. Again, we point out that the city has already agreed to a new, multi-year agreement for both law enforcement and fire rescue services. This was first incorrectly reported by the Sun-Sentinel this past Saturday, October 27, 2007. In fact, the Sun-Sentinel acknowledged its original error in its own correction that ran the day before this new editorial.

Lamberti appointed Broward sheriff

The following is a correction to a story in the Sun-Sentinel dated October 27, 2007.

"...Lamberti faces several challenges in the near future....Pembroke Park is considering dropping the Sheriff's Office for a cheaper alternative..."

CORRECTION: This is incorrect. The City of Pembroke Park has already agreed to remain with the Broward Sheriff's Office for both its law enforcement and fire rescue services. In fact, the city has agreed to a multi-year contract with BSO.

Crime Spree - Hold-ups in Boca of all-night stores

The following is a correction to a picture caption in a Miami Herald article dated October 19, 2007.

"...IN POMPANO: BSO calls this man, who visited a CVS minutes before a Sept. 4 hold-up, a 'person of interest'."

CORRECTION: BSO released the picture of the individual over a month ago. Since then, he has been identified and has come forward to talk with detectives. Several weeks ago he was ruled out as having any connection to the robbery. The Miami Herald, which received the picture on September 6th, did not check with BSO for an update before running the picture on October 19th. BSO does not consider this man related to the September 4th robbery.
