Special Units of The City of Miami Police Department at St. Dominic Gardens

The residents of St. Dominic Gardens enjoyed a presentation by the City of Miami Police Department Special Units.  They interacted with the Special Agents (dogs, horses, …) and learned all of the wonderful ways that our City of Miami Police Department keep us safe.
