Broward County has a new governmental watchdog – the county’s second inspector general – who comes to the position after working for 10 years in the office she will now lead.
Carol “Jodie” Breece, the Office of the Inspector General’s general counsel, will succeed Inspector General John W. Scott, who became the county’s first watchdog in 2011 after voters in 2010 approved the new position and staff. Scott opted not to seek another term in 2023 and the Selection-Oversight Committee chose Breece, according to a news release.
The office oversees Broward County government and its 31 municipalities, rooting out fraud, waste and corruption.
