More than 850 people attended the largest ever, Law Enforcement Officer Gala on Saturday, January 21, 2012 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. This Gala has become known as the Academy Awards of Law Enforcement or the L.E.O.’s.
It was an exciting and anxious night for all as winners were announced in various categories for outstanding achievement and life saving efforts. In the end our very own Sunny Isles Beach Police Officer, Patty Gonzalez was a winner of the prestigious L.E.O. Statue for her contributions to child safety at our local community school. Officer Gonzalez is the School Liaison Officer at Norman S. Edelcup K-8 Community School in our city. Her contributions and dedication to the children were recognized by the awards committee. Congratulations Officer Gonzalez.
