Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho was joined by School Board members, Miami-Dade Schools Police Department (M-DSPD) Chief Edwin Lopez, School Police officers and their families and friends for a swearing-in ceremony at Miami Senior High School. In addition to 45 new M-DSPD officers who were sworn in, 23 others were promoted for their steadfast commitment to protecting our schools and students. The hiring of these additional officers will allow M-DSPD to continue increasing its presence in our schools.
The newly-hired officers include a certified firefighter and EMT (Emergency Medical Technician), former officers from the Miami Springs, Coral Gables and Hialeah police departments, various M-DCPS alumni, collegiate athletes, and Marine Corps and United States Army veterans.
