MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
Pursuant to the provisions of Section 2-11.13 of the Miami-Dade County Code, it is the policy of Miami-Dade County to provide reasonable reimbursement to County employees for the loss or damage to their personal property when that loss or damage was incurred in the discharge of the employee’s assigned duties, was not the result of the employee’s negligence, and could not otherwise be compensated.

On May 6, 2012, Detective Raul Cabrera’s unmarked county vehicle and all of its contents were destroyed in a fire. The incident was reported to the Miami-Dade Police Department and his supervisor confirmed the loss as documented in an Offense Incident Report dated May 6, 2012. The amount of the loss was confirmed in the amount of $3,213.25. All of the personal equipment lost in the fire was necessary for Detective Cabrera to perform his duties.

In presenting this claim for reimbursement, the Miami-Dade Police Department has complied with Section 2-11.13 of the Miami-Dade County Code and the requirements of Administrative Order 7-23, “Reimbursement to County Employees for Loss of Personal Property.” Also, in accordance with the Administrative Order, Detective Cabrera’s request for reimbursement has been approved by the Internal Services Department and the Office of Management and Budget.
