TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR COUNTY MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO CREATE AN ILLEGAL GAMING TASK FORCE FOR THE PURPOSE OF REDUCING ILLEGAL GAMING IN MIAMI-DADE COUNTY THROUGH EFFECTIVE EDUCATION, LEGISLATION, REGULATION, LAW ENFORCEMENT AND PROSECUTION

BODY
WHEREAS, illegal gaming operations are proliferating in Miami-Dade County and have lead to a series of arrests and the confiscation of gaming machines; and
WHEREAS, illegal gaming operations are typically associated with organized crime; and
WHEREAS, coordination between local, state and federal law enforcement will increase enforcement and deter further proliferation of illegal gaming in Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, it will benefit the Board of County Commissioners and the people of Miami-Dade County to develop additional regulation to prevent the further proliferation of illegal gaming operations in the County,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA that the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee is directed to create an Illegal Gaming Task Force consisting of local, state and federal authorities for the purpose of reducing illegal gaming in Miami-Dade County through effective education, legislation, regulation, law enforcement and prosecution. The County Manager is directed to urge federal, state and other local law enforcement agencies to provide members to the Illegal Gaming Task Force to ensure appropriate representation of Task Force members and to maximize Task Force goals and objectives. The Illegal Gaming Task Force shall also study the feasibility and advisability of additional regulation of illegal gaming and propose legislation to the Board of County Commissioners to accomplish these goals. The County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee is directed to take all necessary actions to accomplish these goals.
