Deputy Maury Hernandez received a hero’s welcome from BSO colleagues and command staff at the Pembroke Park/West Park District after being released from the hospital on Friday, October 26th. BSO patrol cars and motorcycle units lined the street leading to the district office and two fire trucks hoisted an American flag near the entrance. Deputy Hernandez made a miraculous recovery after being shot in the head last August. There are enough horror stories and there have been too many deaths,” said Lt. Col. Danny Wright. “Those who don’t believe in miracles can look at Maury, he personifies what a hero is.” Although Dep. Hernandez has a long recovery before returning to BSO, dispatchers announced in law enforcement terms that he’s 10-8 (back in service). The men and women of the Broward Sheriff’s Office are so grateful to witness Dep. Hernandez’s strength, courage and faith — he is truly a hero. Welcome home Maury!
