Annual Report 2017
Thank you, Doral, for working with your Police Department to keep Doral a safe place to live, work, learn, and play. The 2017 Annual Report is proof that great things happen when police and the community work together. Your police officers remain true to the Department’s philosophy. “We are the Guardians; a shield forged by truth, valor, diversity, and reverence.” It is through a commitment to this philosophy that your officers provide the highest level of service to you, to the business community, and to visitors of Doral.
No one will argue Doral is growing and with this growth come huge challenges to public safety. A police department cannot face these challenges isolated from its community; public safety is a team effort. The community must be an active participant in public safety and work hand-in-hand with its police department. We have achieved this partnership through our commitment to community policing and procedural justice. We have faced the challenges of growth together—police and community—and we have achieved great things together.
Take a moment and read the 2017 Annual Report. You will see how the police department adjusted to the changes in population and the demands for police services. You will see how the men and women of the police department accepted the challenge and how they, alongside the community, kept Doral safe. Let’s keep the momentum going. Let’s keep Doral a safe city to live, work, learn, and play. Let’s do it together

Annual Report 2016
The Doral Police Department’s 2016 Annual report provides the perfect opportunity to showcase our accomplishments and look toward the challenges we face in 2017. We are the Guardians; a shield forged by truth, valor, diversity, and reverence. It is through a commitment to this philosophy that the police department provides the highest possible service to our residents, business, and visitors.
Your police department is committed to the concept of community policing and procedural justice. Community policing focuses on policing through initiatives aimed at problem solving, building relationships with residents and businesses, and organizational transformation. We recognize that a police department does not operate isolated from its community and that the community must be an active participant in public safety. The police department builds community relationships by promoting trust through transparency and through active involvement in community activities. By practicing procedural justice, we ensure a culture of fairness, impartiality, voice, and transparency. It is this joint effort —police and community, community and police— that has helped us achieve our goals for 2016.
Please take the time to read through our annual report. In it you will discover the challenges the police department faced because of our growing population and increased demands for police services and how the men and women of the police department stepped up to the challenge to keep Doral safe. We are blessed to be part of one of the safest cities in South Florida. Rest assured your police department will continue to work to ensure Doral remains a safe city to live, work, invest, learn, and play.
