JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Steve Amos is now at that the helm of the Fraternal Order of Police, which was rocked following Operation Reveal the Deal that landed the organization's two top executives in cuffs.

"Business as usual," said Amos of what is going on now at the group's headquarters on Beach Boulevard. The FOP has a membership of more than 2,000 active and retired officers.

Nelson Cuba held the top position at FOP for years. He was arrested, along with more than 50 others in a statewide investigation that closed all of Allied Veterans of the World internet sweepstakes operations.

Amos, who was elected president and will serve until the end of the years, said FOP's image still stands and is good to go with the public.

"We made sure our assets are secure, noting was frozen with FOP and we are going on with business," said Amos from a FOP conference room.

Amos said the organization is ready to move ahead and tackle pension issues with the city along with officer contracts that are on the table next year.
