A brief glimpse of what is going on in the Miami Springs Parks & Recreation Department
The Miami Springs Police Department employs four school crossing guards; 2 at Miami Springs Elementary and 2 at Springview Elementary.
Currently, the department has four officers assigned to the Bike Patrol. They each attended and passed a rigorous 40 hour course to become a certified Bike Patrol Officer.
The Community Policing Office (CPO), located at 274 Westward Drive, is partially funded by the Law Enforcement Trust Fund (LETF) and various grants. CPO officers apply for grant money to fund Crime Watch and other citizen involved programs. The office is staffed by 1 Sergeant, 2 officers and 1 administrative specialist.
The Community Policing Office is open Monday-Friday 8am-4pm. Our phone number is (305) 888-5286.
CPO officers assist in a myriad of duties that include:
"Billy" Wilcox is remembered not only for his years of outstanding local and federal government service, but also for his sense of humor and love of community theater.
To replace a “three pontoon barge bridge” that connected Country Club Estates and Hialeah, the Warren Pony Swing Bridge was donated in 1923 to Dade County by city founder Glenn Curtiss. A bridge tender lived in a small house on the Hialeah side, and used a long metal pipe at the pivot pier to manually turn the bobtail bridge, usually with the help of some neighborhood children. It is the only one of its kind in the State of Florida.
