M-DCPS Reaches Agreements with Three More Cities for Additional Law Enforcement Presence at Schools

This morning, Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) reached agreements with the cities of Hialeah, Hialeah Gardens and Miami Lakes to provide additional sworn police officers to the schools in these cities. 

M-DCPS has police officers assigned to traditional middle and high schools. These agreements, along with previous MOU signed with other municipalities, will assist the District in ensuring that there is a sworn law enforcement presence at all district schools beginning on opening day.

The MOU will provide guidelines as to the roles and responsibilities of the municipal police departments and the Miami-Dade Schools Police Department regarding the cities’ placement of school-based law enforcement officers (or SBLEOs) at Miami-Dade’s public schools.
