After Twitter users pointed out the photo VP Mike Pence’s account deleted the post and reposted the following:
Grateful for the courageous members of law enforcement who helped with my visit to Florida this afternoon. Thank you for everything you do to help keep our communities SAFE. Great to meet you! pic.twitter.com/Lh9Udk5fr2— Vice President Mike Pence (@VP) December 1, 2018
The Broward County Sheriff’s Office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Spokeswoman Veda Coleman-Wright told the Miami New Times that the patch was not authorized by the department.
“The patch is not authorized by BSO,” she said. “This matter will be addressed immediately.”
The officer was identified by the name Sgt. M. Patten on his uniform.
Patten has reportedly been cited for “excellence” in “anti-terrorism, training, and civic education” in the past.
Mike Pence’s staff did not respond to a request for comment.
