Cypress Financial Group Market Leader Gil Cohen Joins Broward Sheriff's Advisory Council

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwired - May 13, 2014) - The Broward Sheriff's Advisory Council (B.S.A.C.) has named Gil Cohen, Market Leader at Cypress Financial Group (an Office of MetLife), as its newest member. The induction ceremony took place at the Council's monthly dinner meeting on February 13.

"It's an honor to be part of such a prestigious group in the community," Cohen said. "I'm extremely grateful to Sheriff Scott Israel and the rest of the Broward County Sheriff's Office -- not only for this opportunity, but for the extraordinary service they provide every day. I look forward to supporting the department in its efforts to improve and strengthen our community as an active member of the Advisory Council."

The B.S.A.C. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation founded in 1975 by then-Sheriff Nick Navarro and is funded by donations from its members -- men and women who are dedicated to supporting the entire Broward County law enforcement community, not just the Broward Sheriff's Office.

The B.S.A.C. mission is to provide financial assistance to the families of officers killed or disabled in the line of duty. In addition, the Council also helps develop educational programs to assist and support the State of Florida in drug abuse prevention and crime prevention.
