Florida Governor Ron DeSantis should issue an Executive Order to prohibit Law Enforcement Officers in the state of Florida from using civilians or civilian occupied vehicles as a form of protection from an imminent danger.

Rationale

Recognizing that Law Enforcement officers may sometimes encounter dangerous conditions, it is vital to the public interest that officers take all steps possible -- up to and including their own injury or death -- to avoid forcing members the civilian population into harm's way in an effort to protect themselves from danger or an imminent threat.

Resulting in No Injury

Officers who use civilians or civilian occupied vehicles to shield themselves from danger should be charged under Florida Statute 784.011 - "Assault", and if found guilty be removed from their post as a sworn LEO, and be ineligible to regain status as a LEO in Florida for at least 3 years after the incident, if there are no fatalities or serious injuries resulting from their actions.

Resulting in Injury

Officers who use civilians or civilian occupied vehicles to shield themselves from danger should be charged under Florida Statute 784.045 - "Aggravated battery", and if found guilty be removed from their post as a sworn LEO, and be ineligible to regain status as a LEO in Florida forever, if there is a civilian/bystander injury as a result of their actions.

Resulting in Death

Officers who use civilians or civilian occupied vehicles to shield themselves from danger should be charged under Florida Statute 782.11- "Unnecessary killing to prevent unlawful act", and if found guilty be removed from their post as a sworn LEO, and be ineligible to regain status as a LEO in forever, if there is a civilian/bystander fatality as a result of their actions.
