County Commission approves a resolution codesignating a portion of NW 87th Avenue between NW 170th Street to NW 186th Street “Sergeant Larry E. Marrero Drive”


MIAMI–DADE – On July 23, 2019, the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners approved a resolution codesignating a portion of NW 87th Avenue between NW 170th Street and NW 186th Street "Sergeant Larry E. Marrero Drive."

Sergeant Larry E. Marrero passed away on November 28, 2018, after he suffered a heart attack while participating in his agency’s physical fitness program. Posthumously, Sergeant Larry E. Marrero was subsequently promoted from the rank of Detective to Sergeant.

“Sergeant Larry E. Marrero served the Miami Beach Police Department for 28 years with distinction in a variety of assignments including patrol, marine patrol, school resource officer, and homicide detective, and was a 20 year member of the department’s SWAT unit,” Commissioner Bovo said. “A resident of Palm Springs North, Sergeant Marrero was a prominent member of our District 13 community, and it is only right to honor his life and memory by codesignating that portion of NW 87th Avenue between NW 170th Street to NW 186th Street ‘Sergeant Larry E. Marrero Drive.’”
