Public Safety

Public Safety

Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez is determined to have world-class police and corrections departments for Miami-Dade County. It is important that we ensure the County's public safety departments are equipped with the necessary tools to serve our community and keep our residents safe. 

Body Worn Cameras

The Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD) has equipped more than 1,100 officers with body cameras. MDPD is the largest police department in the nation to deploy body-worn cameras -- cameras that will allow our police department to better protect and serve our community.
