  • The Pres Says - June 2018
    Updated On: Jun 11, 2018
    STEADMAN STAHL, PBA President

    We had a busy May. It started off with a moving and somber tribute to the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice right here in Miami-Dade County. The 37th Annual Police Memorial which took place on May 3rd at Tropical Park. It started out with a little bit of rain, but almost as if on cue, it stopped at the commencement. I'm a firm believer that our very own St. Michael was looking out for us as he always does. This memorial honors all the Miami-Dade County officers that have died in the line of duty, dating back to 1895. It is our duty to honor the memory of these officers who died protecting the citizens of our county. We here at the PBA would like to thank all the volunteers who put in countless hours not only on maintaining the memorial but making sure that everyone attending the ceremony always knows that their sacrifices will always be remembered. I would like to thank the National Youth Organization of Young Marines who are made up of boys and girls ages 8 through 18, who have helped us man the refreshment tent at the memorial each year. These kids did a great job throughout the event ensuring everyone stayed hydrated. 


    Speaking of volunteers, we would like to send a big shout out to the POAT's Cops Ride for Kids event, which attracted hundreds of motorcycle enthusiasts to come out and do the charity ride which started at Miami-Dade 
    Police Department Headquarters and ended at Gilbert's in Key Largo. To the multi-agency motormen, we say “thank you” for keeping it safe. 


    Another moving event which took place last month was Project Hero. The goal of Project Hero is to honor all the fallen officers from Miami-Dade County in their final resting place. Starting May 1st through May 31st, the officers are honored by having a United States Flag with the eternal blue line through it, placed at the final resting places of each of these fallen heroes. Thanks to all of those who were involved in this project and for keeping their memory alive. 


    At the time of this writing we are preparing for our upcoming 25th Annual Law Enforcement Awards Gala - which pays tribute to the men and women across Miami-Dade County who pin on the badge every day and keep our communities safe. Stay tuned next month for a few of our Top Cop honorees. 


    As we go into the month of June, we here at the PBA hope that those of you who are fortunate to still have their fathers please make sure that you spend some quality time with them. For those of you who, like myself, have lost your fathers, know that they are above looking down and smiling. I’ll leave you with a quote from Margaret Thurman, regarding fathers. “It's only when you grow up and step back from him or leave him for your own home that you measure his greatness and fully appreciate it.” To all the fathers out there: enjoy your special day. You have earned it. And always remember that without our dads we wouldn't be here.
