Doral, FL – The Doral City Council, joined by District 12 Miami-Dade County Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz, broke ground on Doral’s first police substation. The new 12,500 sq. ft. complex will include a community center and be located on the 3700 block of NW 97th Avenue, in the heart of the city. The substation will consolidate the police department’s community policing division and provide a centralized location for the School Resource Unit, Neighborhood Resource Unit, Bike Squad and K-9 Unit, allowing the residents to access improved community oriented policing services in a convenient location. Residents, business owners, and visitors alike will be able to file police reports, request copies of police records, or schedule free security surveys. The substation also expands the police department’s “Safe Spot” program, providing the community with a safer environment to transact internet sales or comply with child custody requirements. The Doral Police Department strives to build a strong relationship with the residents, businesses, and schools of Doral. “Building trust and legitimacy in the community is one of the six pillars of 21st century policing,” said Vice Mayor Christi Fraga. “Our force has been honored by Attorney General Lynch for this and our 21st century police force needs a 21st century facility,” the Vice Mayor added. Upon completion, the Doral community will enjoy two convenient locations for obtaining police services: the headquarters building at 6100 NW 99 Avenue, and the new substation.
