Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said he wants to pass legislation that would give police officers who relocate to his state $5,000.

In an interview with Fox News's Maria Bartiromo, DeSantis said that he wants to recruit police officers who are not "being treated well" over vaccine mandates in other states.

He said he'll hopefully sign a bill in the next legislative session. The bill would offer a $5,000 bonus to out-of-state law enforcement.

"If you're not being treated well, we'll treat you better here. You can fill important needs for us, and we'll compensate you as a result," DeSantis said.

DeSantis first made the pitch to give out bonuses to recruit law enforcement in August.
