Miron, H. Jerome; Wasserman, Robert
This report reviews and describes issues relating to the police response to the Dade County, Florida, disorders of May 1980. Recent changes in the social environment and several incidents leading up to the disorders are described. The preparation, planning, mobilization, and tactical response of the Dade County Department of Public Safety and the Miami Police Department are assessed, and discussions with senior police executives, supervisors, and law enforcement officials in Dade County and throughout the country are analyzed in order to identify emerging issues and their applicability to other jurisdictions. A number of important issues for police agencies to consider are identified, and pertinent statements and recommendations by several national commissions on civil disorders are reprinted. Appended is the Dade County Department of Public Safety's report on the disorders. (Author/MK)
