Delinquent On Duty
In his final act as Miami Dade Police Director, James Loftus summoned Sgt. Jennifer Gonzalez and police officers Dario Socarras and Jose Huerta to his office. One at a time he met with them. And each conversation ended with Loftus delivering the same message: “You’re fired.”
Moments after assuming command as the new director of the Miami Dade Police Department, JD Patterson was answering questions about a squad of lazy cops who were caught on surveillance video ducking calls.
The Miami Dade Police Department has fired a sergeant and two officers for dereliction of duty and suspended three others without pay in what is considered one of the worst incidents of delinquency in the department’s history.
