The North Miami Police Department is outraged by the behavior of the police officers that led to the death of Mr. George Floyd. The actions, and inactions, of the officers are contrary to the values and training of law enforcement, and the North Miami Police Department’s mission. Excessive force and biased behavior by police officers tear at the very fabric of community policing, which we have worked so hard to strengthen over the years. As guardians of our society, we must do better in improving our training and protocols so that our community’s trust is not lost. Transparency is key to demonstrating our commitment to serving and protecting our residents with respect and dignity.
The North Miami Police Department extends our condolences and prayers to the family and friends of Mr. Floyd. We are united in the commitment of achieving justice, accountability, and peace.
Larry Juriga, Chief of Police
