State Rep. Janet Adkins (R-Fernandina Beach) has asked Gov. Rick Scott for an investigation of the Jacksonville Police and Fire Pension Fund.

In a letter to Scott last week, Adkins asked for a review by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Chief Inspector General to see if any laws were broken in the handling of the pension fund.

“I simply believe that the public trust has been broken,” said Adkins. “In order to ensure that our retired firefighters and our retired police officers and the taxpayers are protected, we need to restore that public trust.”
