Miami Lakes, FL -Town of Miami Lakes Officer Anthony Baez was recognized by the Miami-Dade County Police Department as the Distinguished Officer of the Month for December 2015. This isn’t the first accolade received by Baez, as he was also awarded Officer of the Quarter by the Town for his bravery, and dedication to duty at a Miami Lakes Town Council Meeting.

On Tuesday, September 1, 2015, Town of Miami Lakes officers were dispatched to a shooting involving employees who worked out of Business Park West, and the suspect had fled the area.
