Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava and County Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz were in attendance, after which Diaz offered his heartfelt appreciation to the fallen officers and their families for their ultimate sacrifice.

“They did their job,” Diaz said. “They did what they were supposed to do. That was her duty. They knew the odds, they knew what could happen, but they took it upon themselves to continue their watch.”
