five Parkland deputies were photographed hunched over coffee and bagels at a Coral Springs deli two Saturdays ago, it gave their employer, the Broward Sheriff's Office, a spot of indigestion. BSO acknowledged Wednesday that the city of 18,312 was briefly without a patrol presence while the entire day shift, including a sergeant, went noshing together in another town. That's against BSO rules. All of the deputies have been informally counseled for leaving the city unprotected, said Jim Leljedal, a spokesman for the sheriff's office. ''The sergeant has taken full responsibility,'' Leljedal said. ``He called the deputies over to the restaurant because he wanted to brief them and coordinate the day's activities.'' The breakfast bunch was observed at about 7:15 a.m. at Strathmore Country Bagel and Deli, 9100 Wiles Rd., by an alert Parkland resident, who happened to have a photo-taking cellphone handy. A copy of the photo was sent to BSO. The breakfast was not only a breach of BSO procedures. It was a bad political move. It came just 13 days after the city police department merged with BSO, the result of a contentious 3-2 City Commission vote. Scores of residents registered loud objections to the merger, some claiming that police protection would suffer. Story with Photo!
