Some of the most important local elections are happening August 30th. It is very important for each of us to either vote, find others who live in Miami-Dade to vote in the event we don’t, or both. Get your family members out to vote. Get everyone single person you know and motivate them to vote.
This month a lot of elected positions here in Miami-Dade County will be decided. Most of them Judges, State Representatives and even our Mayor. I cannot stress enough the importance of everyone getting involved in the election, and voting. Sadly, this simple task all to often is not accomplished.
Welcome back and let’s get right into it! The violence towards our profession is at an all time high. Our hearts and prayers are with the fallen heroes of the City of Dallas Police Department and their families. There are countless stories of their heroism, ranging from how they ran into the gunfire to using their bodies to shield the victims from the shooting.
The month of August is here. As of the time of this writing, the news of the Training and Treatment Center closing has come as no surprise. The facility has been threatened with closing for years. Now it has finally happened. My concern is for the officers that have been there for their entire careers.
