Miami-Dade Police spread love and safety belt awareness on Valentine’s Day

HOMESTEAD, FLA. (WSVN) - Miami-Dade Police were out in full force Tuesday morning, spreading love on Valentine’s Day in Homestead.

Parents dropping off their kids at Avocado Elementary School received a red rose from police and some sound advice.

“It’s really important for our children to wear their safety belts — not only the children, but their parents,” said Miami-Dade Police Detective Robin Pinkard. “Today is Valentine’s Day, so we decided to hand out roses to the parents that are wearing their safety belts, along with their children, and if they’re not, we will still provide them with a rose and advise them on the importance of wearing their safety belts.”

Officers wanted to remind parents and students to buckle up and not forget to spread love on this day.
