New Miramar Police headquarters opens

The Miramar Police Department has opened its new headquarters after 11 years of construction, Wednesday morning.

The 65,000-square-foot facility is located 11765 City Hall Promenade in the Miramar Town Center, and will also house the City’s Emergency Operations Center. It broke ground in 2014, nine years after the previous headquarters was destroyed by Hurricane Wilma.

“The Miramar Police family has been eagerly waiting for our new home,” said Miramar Police Chief Dexter Williams. The day we placed shovels in the ground sparked the beginning of a new adventure. We will remember our past and celebrate our future while providing stellar police service to our community. On behalf of the men and women of the Miramar Police Department, we thank you for your continued support.”

The department will conduct tours of the new facility after the ribbon cutting ceremony.
