Police Gearing up for Urban Beach Week
(Miami FL.) -- Urban Beach Weekend begins on Thursday and Miami Beach Police are ready for the influx of visitors to South Beach. All 400 Miami Beach Police officers will work the event, and 200 more from outside agencies will be brought in to assist them. They also have something new this year to help them – 18-live surveillance cameras that will be monitored around the clock. License plate readers will also be used. They will alert officers if a car is stolen or the owner is wanted. There will be watch towers, DUI checkpoints, and lights illuminating Lummus Park when the sun goes down. The idea is to prevent crime and police say it worked last year with less than 400 arrests.
