Miami Gardens Swears In First Female Police Chief
History was made Monday in Miami Gardens, as the city’s first-ever female police chief was sworn in.
Delma Noel-Pratt literally stepped up into the role, using a small platform to stand behind the podium for her first remarks as chief.
“A lot of good things come in small packages,” she joked.
With 24 years of law enforcement experience under her belt, it’s no surprise a who’s who of Police leaders from various departments came out to support Chief Noel Pratt.
Miami Beach Police Chief Dan Oates was there, along with Noel-Pratt’s former boss from Miami-Dade Police Department, Director Juan Perez.
“Having a piece of us, of Miami-Dade Police, in Miami Gardens, integrated here it’s going to enhance the relationships. Really it’s an exciting time,” Director Perez told CBS4’s Lauren Pastrana.
