The Miami City Commission passed with a unanimous 5-0 vote, legislation introduced by Commissioner Manolo Reyes, for a School Resource Officers Program that places sworn City of Miami Police officers at all city wide Miami-Dade County Public Schools.

City Manager Emilio Gonzalez will prepare a report to determine the economic impact as well as an implementation plan and any recommendations working alongside Miami-Dade Public Schools to present to the City Commission at the March 8th commission meeting.

“As a father, grandfather, and a public school teacher I personally understand that school safety is and should be our utmost first priority as a public servant,” said Commissioner Reyes.
