In anticipation of a verdict announcement in the State of Florida v. George Zimmerman trial that is currently underway in Sanford, Florida, The Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD) is working with community leaders, members of the local clergy, as well as local, state, and federal agencies to maintain a safe and secure environment throughout Miami-Dade County. We are promoting public safety by urging the public to BE VOCAL, NOT VIOLENT.

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park
6160 NW 32nd Ct, Miami, FL 33142
