2016 National Night Out


The Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD) announces its support for, and participation in, the annual National Night Out, which takes place tomorrow, Tuesday August 2. 

The mission of the National Night Out campaign is to build partnerships between law enforcement officers and the communities they serve, as well as to promote neighborhood camaraderie, with a view to making neighborhoods safer.
