All Miami-Dade County law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty dating back to 1895, are honored at this ceremony. It is our duty to honor the memory of those officers who have died protecting and serving the citizens of Miami-Dade County. If you have never been to this ceremony, you owe it to yourself to attend. This year, four names will be added to the wall: Florida Corrections Officer Tawanna Marin, struck and killed by a vehicle while supervising an inmate work crew; Florida Corrections Sergeant Jorge Ramos, died after collapsing during a statewide Correctional Emergency Response Team competition; Miami Beach Sergeant Larry Marrero, suffered a fatal heart attack while participating in his department’s physical fitness program at police headquarters; Miami-Dade Police Officer Jermaine Brown, killed in an ATV crash while conducting an enforcement detail.
Thanks for your support and stay safe.
