police_services23The Miami-Dade Police Department has suffered a great loss of two of our finest officers, Roger Castillo and Amanda Haworth, who were killed while serving a warrant in Miami-Dade County, Florida, on Thursday, January 20, 2011.

We will never forget the endeavor of which they dedicated their lives ~ serving the citizens of Miami-Dade County.

We will continue to stand united as a Department, as co-workers, as friends, but most of all, as family. It is not in vain that this brave man and woman gave their lives. We will go on serving and protecting, as it is our duty to do so, and we will continue to uphold the law, as they would expect and want it to be.

We humbly ask for your continued thoughts and prayers for the Castillo and Haworth families.

God be with you all!
