MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami-Dade Police officers spent the day making sure our community is safe.

They conducted a warrant program all day Friday to get criminals off the streets.

Different teams of officers were briefed on their assignment then rolled out to serve warrants.

Miami-Dade Police does this almost every month in an effort to combat crime in the community.
