Former Orlando police Chief John Mina was elected Orange County’s next sheriff Tuesday night, defeating two opponents to replace Mayor-elect Jerry Demings as the county’s top law enforcement official.

Mina will now lead the largest law-enforcement agency in Central Florida, with a $250-million budget and about 2,600 full-time employees, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Mina, 50, ran as an independent in a three-man field and campaigned primarily on his four-year tenure as Orlando police chief. Mina originally joined the Orlando Police Department in 1991 and served in various roles before being appointed chief in 2014. He retired from the Orlando PD in October.

God speed sir, you have a task ahead of you. I worked there for a short time as a custody release specialist at the county jail. 4300+ inmates on any given day, spread out across the county in 11 different buildings at the time. Great agency to work for but I just could not afford the cost of living on the salary at the time. I'm sure he will do well.
