Summer is here!  
Happy Father’s Day
The Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Ceremony was a very moving event for all in attendance. Unfortunately, Customs and Border Patrol Officer Dwight Blackman Jr.’s name was added to the wall this year. His colleagues spoke very fondly of him reflecting back of their friendship, work experiences and family life with Dwight. He is survived by his wife Donnelle and daughter Dielle, he will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

Rosemary Zore reflected back to Christmas Eve 1983 when she was seven years old and her father MDPD officer Robert Zore was shot and killed while responding to a suspicious person call. Even though her memories of her father are scattered and vague he has been a guiding light for her as she has moved forward in her eventful life.  We would like to thank everyone involved in the planning and implementation of another memorable ceremony honoring all of our fallen heroes, as well as all of you who attended.

The Motorcycle Ride to benefit POAT’s Holiday Gifts for Surviving Children was held on Sunday, May 1, 2016, at 9:00 a.m. There were over 800 bikers who enjoyed the ride to the Keys on a beautiful sunny day and supported a great cause. We would like to thank the motor units from all of the police departments that assist every year in ensuring this is a safe and successful event. Thank You!

On Saturday, April 9, 2016, the POAT Walk Team participated in the Walk to Cure Diabetes at Zoo Miami. The POAT walk team raised $ 35,100 in sponsorship and donations. Since 2003, when POAT joined the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation by participating in the Walk to Cure Diabetes, we have raised $ 780,192. That’s something we can all be proud of! Thanks to everyone for your continued support year after year.

Thanks for your support and stay safe!
