HARVEY AYERS, HISTORY:

FDLE - Florida Department of Law Enforcement Global Profile Sheet states about Harvey Ayers: “NO MORAL CHARACTER”…
FDLE Harvey Ayers
What is contained herein is incredible true and factual information about Sarasota County employee Harvey Ayers. This story defies comprehension, but is completely true. Yet, most troubling is how Sarasota County Government seems to condone and continue to support this former disgraced police officer that has been working for Sarasota County; even after they knew about his past through public records and employment records they obtained which revealed much of what is contained herein. Shocking to say the least! There have been many complaints, Sarasota County Government and the Sarasota County Commissioners seem to not care, even after they have been informed of current complaints by citizens and myself. READ ON…

I believe that the credibility of the witness is in question here and now I have two objections to
Mr. Ayers’ credibility, he has just lied and said he has never been dishonest.
