Officer Anthony Baez Named Officer of the Quarter for Brave Pursuit

Miami Lakes, FL - At the Tuesday, October 6th Town Council meeting, Officer Anthony Baez was named Officer of the Quarter for his bravery, astute powers of observation and dedication to duty that exemplifies the Department’s highest standard of conduct.

On Tuesday, September 1, 2015, Town of Miami Lakes officers were dispatched to a contact shooting involving employees who worked out of Business Park West, and the suspect had fled the area. Officer Baez responded and began pursuit. The suspect observed Officer Baez’s marked vehicle behind him, but refused to stop. Shortly thereafter, the suspect abandoned his vehicle and fled on foot and was subsequently apprehended by Officer Baez.

The Town and its Public Safety Committee were honored to recognize Officer Baez for his heroism, valor and dedication to our community.
