Press Release

Mayor and Council Inaugurate New Police Substation

Doral, FL – On January 12, 2018, the City proudly inaugurated the new Police Substation with a ribbon cutting, plaque unveiling and tours for the public. This dedicated, 12,500 square foot facility, which was completed on time and on budget, will focus on community-oriented policing, one of the six pillars of 21st century policing strategies.

This centralized location will house the department’s School Resource Unit and Neighborhood Resource Unit making it more accessible to the community. The Substation will help keep Police response time low, ensuring continued public safety and services are provided as the City continues to grow.

“This new facility means an increased presence of law enforcement and safety in our City, with an emphasis on Community,” said Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez. “I’ve always believed that both go hand-in-hand as everyone, from our officers to our residents, must do their part to maintain the high quality of life that Doral enjoys.”

Thanks to a public-private partnership between the City and Millennia Atlantic University approved in May 2017, a new passive park is coming soon right next to the Police Substation. MAU Park will include eco-friendly and educational features such as: wetland preserves, rain gardens, plaza area, and an art sculpture, as well as bicycle and pedestrian paths with educational signage.
