Things continue to go well for so many Village of Palmetto Bay alumni. I was unable to attend the swearing in due to being in trial, but I would hope that Chief Scott Dennis accepts this blog post as my sincere congratulations for taking on the responsibilities as Chief of the North Miami Beach Police Department.
Another one of the strengths of Palmetto Bay's first 8 years was its partnership with Miami-Dade County and the creation of the contract MDPD/Village Policing Unit. Palmetto Bay continues to prosper under this agreement. Chief Scott Dennis was part of the transition team just after incorporation and them was our initial Lieutenant, part of the leadership team with our first Village Commander, Captain Michael Mouring. Lt. Dennis was later promoted to Captain and later became Palmetto Bay’s second Village Commander.
Congratulations Police Chief Dennis. Those in attendance who represented your prior responsibilities and commitments speak volumes on how you build bridges rather than burn them. Good luck. We all wish you the best!
