It is with great sadness to announce that our Annual Miami-Dade Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Ceremony, scheduled for May 7, 2020, has been canceled. The decision was difficult, however the health and safety of our survivors, law enforcement officers and their families is most important. We are thinking of different alternatives to honor our fallen Officers. We will keep you posted with any changes
The Annual Remember our Fallen Heroes Memorial Golf Outingwill be postponed to a later date. We are working with Indian Creek in order to determine a future date for the golf outing. Once a date is determined, we will send out and post the information.
