Full Press Release: Town Police Hosted Golf Cart Parade Benefitting the POAT
Over 150 Town residents and neighbors came out to enjoy the Cutler Bay Fun Ride Golf Cart Parade & Police Appreciation Day on Saturday, June 2, 2018 at Cutler Ridge Park. The event was organized to show support for our first responders and raise funds for the Police Officers Assistance Trust (POAT). Over $13,000 were raised through this event. POAT provides financial assistance to officers disabled in the line of duty, suffering from chronic or terminal illness, or who are victims of some other catastrophic circumstance. POAT also provides educational assistance to the spouses and children of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty in Miami-Dade County. Since its inception in 1989, POAT has assisted over 700 officers and provided more than $5 million in financial support.
