He needs to retire after blowing the whistle on the Feds. I hope no one ever trusts this guy with any confidential information again. He caused a debacle at the Hollywood P.D. and the department still has a few scorpions that are hiding under some rocks. They know who they are but unfortunately they skated under the radar thanks to the "Chief". The tragic Greek comedy plays on. Thanks.

I think he should have left without telling anyone but then he never could keep a secret.

Say what you want, you're idiots.
The people on this blog hate all cops and have nothing good to say about ANY Chief or ANY Police Department. It's always been like that on the Sun Sentinel blogs. So any comments you make will be ignored

Hollywood suffered a loss yesterday.
This is a sad day for the residents and visitors of the City of Hollywood and most of all for the Sworn and Civilian members of the Hollywood Police Department.

There were people literally crying in the building yesterday after his announcement.

Scumberry was the corruption. Hiring him was like putting a dirty infested bandage on an open sore. Scumberry now has the distinction of being the most crrupt Chief Hollywood ever had. The only people who will cry for him as those like him. Cops and civilians alike at HPD did not like him. Go blow.
Glad to be gone

Good luck in your retirement. You will be missed by the men and women at hollywood pd. We will need to lay low now with our activities since there will be no one to tip us off about invetigations. I am sure the commissioners will find a blue silent suitor to step up to the plate.

Of course he is not to blame. I mean how could he, well maybe. When I moved from West Palm to be closer to my business I thought Hollywood would be about right and thought I would have a look. Getting off the expressway at Sheridan I saw the sign, you know the one with all of the cops lined up and the caption - Hollywood - it is our town.

Now I grew up here in rural Florida and I am very familiar with Cops saying they own the town so I decided I might like to find a little friendlier place to live, and I am glad I did.

I had the opportunity to work with Chief Scarberry. He is an intelligent and honorable man. The City of Hollywood as well as law enforcement in general is losing an asset.

Amazing. "Scarberry, 56, wrote in his resignation letter that he's leaving to see if there are other opportunities for me to explore." Usually, one finds a new job before quitting the current one. But Scarberry is going to quit, in order to see whats out there. Riiiiiight.

ok now climb off your soap box and into reality, obviously the Chief has you in his back pocket, or something on you that your afraid of being leaked. These are not all cop haters they just fed up with the Chief and rank and file of HPD trying to pull the wool over the residents of Hollywood's eyes, I supposr the 4 that were corrupt were just gold old boys. not they got greedy, now that Scarberry has done his damage he figures well its time for me to move on and do something else he stated that he is sure more legal issue will be up and coming of course get out while you can still collect your pension, thats great Miami Beach pension and not Hollywood. Rumor was surfacing before all this that he was looking at a with BSO (before the Jenne mess) well all I can say is GOOD LUCK BSO Sheriff Lamberti is trying to get rid of the rubbish bringing Scarberry in the mix would definitely make more garbage something that you don't need.
