The Coral Gables Police Department paid tribute in May to our fallen officers who died in the line of duty from 1928 to 1992.
Family members of the fallen officers, as well as the Coral Gables City Commission, City Administration and staff participated in this somber ceremony in honor of our beloved brothers: Sergeant Francis Cyril Guest, Sergeant Homer Barton, Constable Luther T. Hardison, Officer Billy Stephens, Officer Walter Stathers, Officer Robert DeKorte, Officer Louis Pena, Sergeant Alfred Terrinoni and Officer Robert Bonnet. Their sacrifices will never be forgotten.
The summer months are here. The Coral Gables Police Department has begun its preparation for hurricane season working in coordination with the Fire Department and other essential personnel. In the case of a weather-related emergency, City personnel are ready to activate the Emergency Operations Center to coordinate storm preparedness, evacuation drills, and any other public safety measures that are needed in order to protect your home or business.
It is imperative that you do your part: please make sure you have enough supplies, food, water and medicines to be on your own for the first 72 hours if a storm hits our area. On the first three days after a storm, the City’s rescue teams will be opening roadways and restoring order before they can provide assistance to anyone.
If you’re going away on vacation this summer, remember to call the Police Department to request a residential check, a free service to patrol your neighborhood while you’re away from home. You can contact us at 305-442-1600. For any other emergencies, please don’t hesitate to call 911.
The Coral Gables Police Department is here to help and protect you.
