Victoria Dweck, 4, nestles in Miami-Dade Police Officer Jonathan Dweck’s arms as her dad receives the Officer of the Month Award from Citizens Advisory Committee chair James Blough and Maj. Arnold Palmer. Dweck was an essential part of the Miami-Dade network that captured a fleeing suspect on Sept. 16 after spotting and then trailing the escaping driver for eight miles on Krome Avenue into Broward County. The fleeing subject was wanted in connection with a shooting at SW 12341 SW 190 St. When the subject was involved in a crash at Griffin Road and US 27, Dweck was one of the first at the scene and began administering aid to a female crash victim in another vehicle (who later expired) while other officers exchanged fire with the suspect. Office Dweck’s courageous actions won him high plaudits during a presentation at a CAC meeting in Hammocks Police District Station on Sept. 25.
